Susie, our QFTD! I am so excited! Susie's gallery is full of inspiring work, and each one has it's own beautiful story! Last night I chose Susie's His Love Endures Forever card, for the simple beauty of it, and also the story.
My story is for Vanessa (yes, the Zumba Girl), who is soon to be married. I used Susie's frame, and added blooms in batches of three. I added three CL vines, three clusters of diamonds, and three letters. The silver heart represents God's love that does endure forever. The number three also represents the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And as I made this card for Vanessa, I thought of the Scripture from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12,
"Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Susie, thank you for your beautiful cards, lively write ups, wonderful sense of humor, and most of all your friendship. You are treasured. Hugs....

Wow not only is this stunning but SO full of meaning. This is a prayer and blessing on paper - a true card from the heart to wish a couple well. If'n it were me receiving this it would be framed as a reminder of Gods blessing on my marriage. Nicely done Sistah! Nicely done! .

With everything that has already been said, I totally agree - I love the way you let the Word guide you as to what goes on and in your cards - what a beautiful verse, enhanced with those gorgeous blooms (bless Mag's heart) and the crystal vines and flourishes. This could not have been done with more love than you poured into it. Your Zumba gal friend is going to cherish this forever!!
