Crafters of Faith

"For God so loved the world; that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

This is Jackie's most favorite verse in the Bible. She says: "It speaks to me about love...a great love that will never end. How awesome!!! For the month of May; I would like you ladies to create something out of love. Interpret this anyway you want...it can be a fave stamp set; some of your fave embellishments, maybe even a project for a loved one. There's so many possibilities & I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Have fun & Happy Stamping!"

I have so many joys in my life....it was hard to choose for my card this month. I love purple....love this gingham ribbon...am learning to love glitz (thanks, Carol).... I also love this sentiment. It is so true....how can following in the path of a lone butterfly be anything but joyous?

Oh...you want to see the card....
Did you think it wasn't done?

I promised it before day end and here it is!



Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April

Oh...oh...oh!! Where do I begin? The gorgeous, shimmery background? The lovely effect of how you stamped the floral image onto it? The sweet butterfly with gems? - - Or the perfect ribbon and the absolute BEST sentiment to accompany all of this?

WOW! This is truly a special creation, April.

And perfect for Jackie's theme this month. I need to get busy and post my card for your theme last month, and make my card for this month. But I know that they will pale compared to this!
Blessings!
