I am this month's hostess for our blog group -Crafters of Faith, and my theme was a no brainier.

Yesterday was my 16th wedding anniversary and I wanted everyone to celebrate love with me!

My words to this special group of ladies: Since we post the day after my wedding anniversary, I would like everyone to make a project based on one of the scriptures read at my wedding: 
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.your card doesn't need to be based on a spousal love, and as such, I would love to hear a story of one of your loves!

Here is my card:

I used a new fold I found on SCS. It was fun!  I try to use a new fold or technique for my husband the first time.  The DP and CS are from SU!, generic sequins, and Marvy punches.  The stamps are three different sets - the outside ones are from SU!, while the interior is from a|s.

I, of course, am going to say I love my husband.
But, I also love God, my entire family, many fantastic people I call friends, this group of crafters, the list goes on!

Since my card was for my husband, I will tell you about him. His personality is just about opposite of mine....  He is a quiet giant - 6'3 and doesn't talk to strangers (I will talk to anyone about anything); he also is a great provider, father, and a wonderful son.  

Thanks for stopping by!
