Love Note

My Valentine's Day card for my hubby and a Stampin Sisiters In Christ Challenge # 75entry.


Scripture for this challenge: 1 John 3:18 "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."

The challenge is to make a wordless card or project that communicated love.

I shared a few weeks ago that I am now disabled. I can no longer shop, cook, or , clean. You may think that sounds pretty good, but believe me when you can't do any of those things for your family you miss them. My husband works long hours and then does all the shopping, cooking, and cleaning now. (at least he attempts to clean :) He rarely ever complains and even goes in craft stores for me! (you know that is dedication) I watch him showing his love for me everyday by taking care of me. He tells me he loves me all the time, but cheerfully puting my socks on and picking out patterned scrapbook paper from the "wilds" of the craft store for me speaks VOLUMES. He shows me he loves me everyday in all the things he does to take care of me or to make me more comfortable.  I am so thankful for him!

I made a side step card and used the Baroque Motifs stamp set from Stampin Up for the background. I cut several hearts anf flourishes out and made a pretty red Poppy.
I'll share the cut files for the flower and a few of the hearts. (did not make all of the heart cut files) 

 
Sorry, these files are no longer available. If you would like a similar file, email me at papercompulsions@gmail.com
