Friends Forever - Love You

The Layers of Color team has a special hop today to honor one of our beloved friends, Grace, who will "retire" as a full-time designer for LOC and become a "Friend of LOC" officially. Her blog, Th-INK-ing of You, was one of the first blogs I discovered 1.5 years ago when I started paper crafting seriously. I was immediately drawn to her beautiful art, and I was ecstatic to find out that she is a sister in the Lord.

Love You Card

Grace, you have been a source of encouragement to me through your prayers and kind words about my work. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous projects that inspire others and for shining brightly for Christ in the paper crafting community. I made this card with you in mind because, I know I speak for everybody in the LOC team...we love you! The Lord bless you and keep you, Grace, on your artistic pursuits.

Here are the links to the other LOC team members:

Love You Card detail

I used Layers of Colors' Fleur Heart and Beloved Wings for my card. I covered the wings with glitter. The papers are Webster's Pages, stamped with the music stamp from Vintage Borders. The ribbon is my own hand-dyed seam binding and the flower is Prima. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers We've Got Your Stickers Sweet.

I can't believe you've only been crafting "for real" for a year and a half!!! WOW! You are so talented Nina and I'm so glad you are using that skill for the Lord... making HIM the reason behind each creation, each class, each post.... He is truly glorified through you Nina! I love your style and this card is so classic!!! Love the beautiful papers, the seam binding ribbon and the wonderful texture! I am so grateful for the time I've had with LOC and I can't wait to see all He's going to do through this company and each one of you! Thank you for your sweet words and wonderful heart Nina! This card is precious in every way, just like you! I won't be far away... just running a little slower behind the pack is all!

  8. Nina,
    This card will probably bring tears to Grace's eyes. She is such a sweetheart through and through. She has so much talent and creativeness. God Bless. I am sure all of you will miss her on your team. Knowing Grace she will never be to far away and will probably still mix it up with you often.
