SSIC Sharing the Love

It is lovely to see you today, it is Sunday here in Australia and time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.  Our hostess this week is everybody friend MariLynn De Groot, who has chosen:
 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

MariLynn's challenge to us for this week is to make a card/project that is related to love. It could be a heart, the word "love" or just something that you love using on your projects

There are so many ways we can tackle this challenge - for me I had not use the Layers of Color images I love, this darling Cherub from the Angelic clear art stamp set being among the sweetest.  The background DP is recycled (and I LOVE that) from a Prima packet - too good to throw away - I am sure you would agree with me on that!

Seam Binding and Mulberry Roses - LOVE those too

Vintage Lace and a sentiment from the Layer of Color The Love Chapter clear art stamp set - one easy card.  My second card is totally different but still full of the things I love....

The gorgeous Spellbinders Decorative Dress Form Dies, illustrated by both Laura Kirste Campbell and Nina Brackett.  My Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

The layers, tags and other Dies have all come from a pile of supplies on my desk, some leftovers and others recycled...some added pearls and a gorgeous lace flower...

along with images from the Layers of Color Touch of Elegance and The Love Chapter clear art stamp sets - along with a Border from the Spellbinders Classic Scallop Die.

These cards are for the following challenges:
Catch The Bug - February Anything Goes
Di's Digis Designs - Valentines
Hiding in my Craft Room - Colour use Pink, Red and White (card 1)
My Sheri Crafts - Love is in the Air
One Stop Craft - For the One I Love
Our Creative Corner -  Love is in the Air
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Die Cut or Punches (card 2) 
Sweet Stampin - The one I love
