CBC May challenge 12: and again

'And this time a quickie a set of 2 tags for gifts'

Mmmm - these were meant to be a tag within a tag, but didn't turn out as first intended. Not one of my best efforts, but nevermind.

Salt: Walking in love

It was Kimberly's turn to choose the Salt challenge this time and she has chosen 'walking in love'. She says:

'For this week's challenge I (Kimberly White) have chosen Walking in Love. There is so much that God has said to us in his Word about Love. God is Love. Faith works by love. The greatest commandment given to us by Jesus is to love.

Jesus replied, "' Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind'. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22: 37-40

But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him; Whoever claims to live in him, must walk as Jesus did. 1 John 2:5-6

This week, consider your love walk ... and join us in creating art that glorifies him.'

As it's our wedding anniversary on Sunday, I was remembering our wedding service and the passage we had read from 1 Corinthians 13 - the chapter about love. So I've based my LO on this:

Background papers used are DS papermania wedding sentiments and victorian. Flowers are from a pack from ELC - colour was nearly that matching bridesmaids' burgundy dresses.

As we celebrate 17 years of marriage, we not only celebrate our love for each other, but also our love in Christ, conscious of his great command to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbours as ourselves.

HS:MS Something gorgeous: beauty

Today on HS:MS: 'So we've finished with Dwarves, where next I hear you ask. Well, onward to someone lovely, whether we're talking about the Sleeping variety or the one that was coupled with a monster like chap, either way we're talking....

Beauty. Show us Beauty in your space.'

These are part of my gorgeous bouquet I received from John:

I nearly dismissed this one, because it's caught the sun shining on it, but I think I rather like it:
