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.

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

Purple Coneflowers with White Embossing

Hi! I’m here with a bright card on a gray wet day. Just a quick post because I am nursing my husband who has come down with a very bad cold/the flu and we are also trying to get ready for our moving company. They are coming on Monday!

I CASEd the lovely Anita’s beautiful creation for as this week’s Muse.

Here’s my CASE of Anita’s beauty.I decided to leave mine without a sentiment for now. I like that it is one layer. I heat embossed in white on fuchsia cardstock and then colored with a variety of Spectrum Noir markers and a black Sharpie.I’m going to share this on Instagram for The Daily Marker’s 30 Coloring challenge.

Do you use Instagram? I’d love to have you as a follower there! 🙂

Find me at honeybeelanecards.

I used the same stamp as Anita. It is called Echinacea Field, by Imagination Crafts.

I happened to buy this stamp in Dunoon, Scotland this past summer after attending the Happy Little Stampers stamping retreat in Swindon. I had the pleasure of meeting Anita as she was there too. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Melissa

Rejoicing Posy

Hi. I worked on this card yesterday to distract myself from a bad outbreak of hives, but just could not make myself blog about it. I’m trying to post something every day for the The Daily Marker’s challenge, but I had to go to bed and try to get some rest.

So, here I am with a card for today.slide01 Just as applicable for today. slide01This day, this allergy triggered, hive-covered-body, getting-ready-for-another-international-move-day IS the day that the Lord has made. slide03

I WILL rejoice and be glad in it! If you are a person prayer, I would greatly appreciate your supplications on my behalf.

   slide04

As you can see, I did some coloring on Kraft cardstock.

slide02  Some fussy cutting and a little stamping and I finished my card.slide02Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Melissa
