AAA Cards Game #108 – All You Need is LOVE

I’m here for AAA Cards Game #108.

Our lovely sponsor for this game is:Uniko

Our guest designers are Bev from Uniko and Sue  from suescardcraft.blogspot.

Check out AAA Cards definition of “WHITE SPACE.” Colored card stock is great, but not patterned, embossed or textured.

Here’s my card using an old favorite, Uniko’s Background Builders: Squared. 

I also used a new stamplorations alphabet plate die.

My sentiment was inspired by the DC Talk song  “Luv Is A Verb.” I have heard DC Talk sing this song in person.

LUV is a verb – Chorus

(chorus 1)
Words come easy but don’t mean much
When the words they’re sayin’ we can’t put trust in
We’re talkin’ ’bout love in a different light
And if we all learn to love it would be just right

(chorus 2)
Hey, tell me haven’t ya heard?
Luv, is a serious word
Hey, I think it’s time ya learned
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care care what ya heard
The word luv, luv is a verb

Almost 22 years ago, a few days before our first child’s birth, my husband and I went to a DC Talk concert in Albuquerque.  The concert was so loud that even though we sat in the far back, she did not move a bit during the entire concert or for a long time afterwards. That worried me! Needless to say, I did not attend loud concerts during my subsequent pregnancies.

I am still a big fan of DC Talk’s former lead singer, TobyMac’s, music. Some of my favorites are Feelin’ So Fly, Love Broke Through, Lights Shine Bright,  Me Without You, and Speak Life.

I hope that you are inspired to play along at AAA Cards this game.

Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of my design teammates’ blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!

For the Birds – Faith Sings – Geometric Bird 3 with Heart

Hello from snowy Maine!

I have a bright, bold and cheerful almost one-layer card to share with you.

I did some ink-blending, stamping, fussy cutting, die cutting and masking to create this card. Besides the red heart die cut negative, the rest of the card is one-layer. I used only ink-blending and stamping on the white card base.

This card was partially inspired by the following card that I made in February of 2016. Slide002

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace, and Happy New Year,

Melissa
