Love is in the Air

On Sunday, a Stamping' Sisters in Christ Challenge design team member Randi (go visit her blog -- she is such an inspiration) wrote in her challenge this week: "We are just a week away from Valentine's Day and I have been busy making cards for friends and family, as I know you are, too. Thinking about all the love that is in the air I was drawn to the scripture that shows us how God views the earthly love between a man and a woman." Her Scripture choice: Mark 10: 7-9 "7. 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8. and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. 9. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." (NASB) Her challenge: one creation incorporating two kinds of the same items - such as 2 different colors of cardstock, 2 different pieces of patterned paper, etc. A major task but here is my "Love is in the Air" as a 5x7 step ladder card -- template from Penny Wessenauer.Two different poodles, flowers, hearts, cardstocks, cuttlebug embossing folders, ink pads, and two different "Eiffel's" -- if you count the shadow -- all to become "one" love.


I am also sharing this with the Rainbow Lady's Challenge for "Seasons" -- I choose Spring!
Now you have the whole kit and "poodle". LOL Thanks for visiting -- gotta go make another one of these for my DGD which will say "I love you an Eiffel lot!"

Stuff I used: Sizzix dies, Memories Ink pads, Art Institute Glitter, Black Sharpie, Cuttlebug Embossing folders, dimensional dots, gems from stash, Emagination edgers, Michael's $1 stamp (my souvenire from Nashville).
