But The Greatest of These is Love

Hello friends. Today I have a cute card that I entered in Gina K.'s Stamptv Mix It Up Monday Challenge. The challenge was to use a favorite quote or saying and I happened to have on hand the second part of the Bible verse (1 Cor 13)  "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is Love" from Gina K's Lacy Borders, so I knew I had to use it. I paired it with the Pink Lady's Slipper flower from Melanie Muenchinger's Stately Flower 7 stamp set. This combination (the flower and the quote) reminds me of my Mom. My Mom has a wonderful way with all plants, especially Orchids, and to everyone that knows her, she embodies the word Love, unconditional love. I thank God everyday that we still have her with us.
