Now These Three Remain: Faith, Hope, and Love

Hello!  I must admit I have been doing very little, if any, paper crafting lately.  It is always hard to craft in the spring.  After waiting nine months for warmer weather to arrive, if I'm not at work, I just want to be outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  We went to Chicago this weekend to see my son-in-law receive his graduate school degree and also to spend Mother's Day with them.  The weather was absolutely PERFECT.  What joy to feel warm, gentle breezes, hear birds sing, and see color and life again.  Who can bear to be inside when it is so gorgeous?  Even now it is a rainy, cloudy day, but I have the window open and I can hear the birds sing and the sound of water flowing over the falls below my property.  Oh, how I love spring, and how elated I am with the dead of winter is over.

That all being said, I have the simplest of cards to share with you.  So simple, I don't think it even took me five minutes.  I have some church friends with an anniversary coming up, and since I don't want to spend two hours in my craft room making a card, I came up with this alternative instead.  I found this digital flower and vase image already pre-printed in my stash.   I cut the card stock so that the image would be on the lower right corner.  Then all I did was stamp a verse, round two of the corners, and add some Stickles in the center of the flowers.

 The sentiment is retired Stampin Up!,  and  unfortunately I have no idea what digital company I received the image from.  I have so many digs from the days when I use to work for various digital companies, it is hard for me to remember what images came from whom.
Have a great day, and get out and enjoy this beautiful weather!  Amy


  1. Amy, this is so pretty!! Five minutes and wow!! What a great card!! I know what you mean about being out in the nice weather as opposed to crafting! :) ENJOY IT!

  2. A five minute masterpiece, my friend! Great job! I agree about spring weather, but OMG, the pollen is terrible here. Everything is green!

  3. Hi Amy, I love this beautiful card very much. By the way I like also your clothes fashion very much and always enjoys to see new items and combi's.
