SSIC Love in Action

This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us nb the lovely Helen this week.  Helen has chosen a scripture from the book of John. 

 "Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other, let us show the truth by our actions" 1 John 3:18 NLT

Helen has challenged us to 1) image showing action OR 2) an image only on the front of your card (no sentiment on the front) OR 3) action card (make it move)

My image is from this weeks sponsor The Paper Shelter and has been coloured using Chalks/Pastels.  It has been cut out using the Spellbinders Standard Circles LG and layered into a Parisian Motifs Die using foam tape.

This has been layered into the Spellbinders Leafy Squares Nestabilities and has Mulberry Roses and Want2Scrap bling added.  All of my Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine

Seam binding and a butterfly has been added and finishing off with a swirl from Want2Scrap.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Ann's - It's A Girl Thing
Crafty CatzSummer Time
Fussy and Fancy - Swirls & Flourishes
Shelly's Images - Bling
Make sure you stop by the Designers Blogs are some amazing inspiration - these ladies are inspirational on so many levels!!

Thank you to our sponsor The Paper Shelter

Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!


  1. Beautiful as ever, Linda, but you cut it out using a circle, not an oval, unless my computer is way out of kilter :-)
    Love your colouring, and the roses and bling make a stunning accent.

  2. Perfectly lovely, lovely Linda! Each detail adds just the right touch and the chalk/pastel coloring is fabulous. I have trouble getting mine to go where I want it. Maybe you could offer some tips...you did a marvelous job with them. Love the card...and I see I'm going to have to scroll down and drool a little more! Have a blessed week...praying consistently for you and yours.

  3. I love it Linda! So very cute! I have not worked with pastels in a while - need to pull them out! I love the flowers on the side too. Always thinking and praying for you. Have a good week.

  4. Awww such a sweet creation Linda! Love the little flower cluster and your coloring is FABULOUS!! Thanks so much for joining our "ALL ABOUT THE BLINGAGE" challenge at Shelly's Images! Please come back and join us again real soon!!
