Love is in the Air

Love is grand, they say.  I know that I've been blessed to love and be loved by the same man for more than 26 years now.  I also know how wonderful it is to experience the love of Jesus Christ.   But what I always find extra exciting is. . . new love.  I've been working on this grocer's bag album for a young couple in our church who will be getting married this August.  I thought Muriel could just use it to attach a few photos to the pages, and tuck away some special memories or trinkets in the pockets.   She is a special young lady who found a super young man, and they're beginning their ministry together as missionaries after their wedding.  What an honor to be so close to this young couple, and to celebrate their love before they prepare to go abroad to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The tag is peeking out of the next pocket a bit.  I love adding dimension on all the pages.  I could just continue adding pins, tags, antique buttons, flowers, and tidbits til' it's bursting.  So sweet.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

I've fallen SO in love with Lily Pad Cards Blog and their fun challenges, inspirational tutorials and more.  This is one of several awesome challenges I've entered at their blog.  This particular challenge is: - A Flower Challenge.  And the prize is. . . a $25 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp Store - Woo Hoo.  I wanna win.

Another challenge that I can NEVER resist and will enter it every week I am physically capable of doing so is the wonderful Simon Says Stamp Blog - Anything Goes this week, my friends.  I am sure you will want to enter.  You just may win one of these bad boys.
I know I want it bad.  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you far more than words can express.  Have a blessed day!

  5. Karen, Hello and thank you SO much for offering such a beautiful giveaway at Little Birdie Blessings! I've been meaning to stop by and say hi. I'v been swamped with custom design work (deadlines) and a presentation for a meeting on Tuesday or I would have stopped by sooner!

    I'm so excited to win something. Your work is so beautiful! I did not anticipate winning any sort of prize when entering in Abby's "Scripture Thursday". She recently sent me a bible and I wanted to spend more time with it so I made the journal page. I feel so blessed to be able to receive something so beautiful and meaningful. It was a total surprise! You're a darling. Thank you so much.
