And the Greatest of These is...



It's Monday and that means it's time for another Hippity Hop!!  

Start at the Ippity blog for the complete list of today's Blog Hop paricipants.  Are you participating?  Do you have an Ippity stamps so you can play along with us?  Well be sure to check out the Clearance sale that I am having on my Ippity Sales Blog.  You can get your Ippity stamps at a very low price and have what it takes to participate with an upcoming Hippity Hop!!

When I saw Karen's Inspiration photo for this week's challenge, I immediately thought of the Bible verse from 1 Corinthians 13:13 which says "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."  Love is such a wonderful thing and I am so blessed to have so much of it in my life from my friends and family. I truly am blessed and so thankful for it!



I used Alphabetically Adorable to stamp the letters L-O-V-E and then also added flowers from this Spring's release set Now and Always.  I love the colors from the photo and chose to stick with those too.  I used post-it's to mask off the center around the letters.



I loved how there were birds in the image too so I also added two of the birds from the What Matters Most set.  I paper pieced them and otherwise used the ink from Stampin' Up and some Copic markers to stamp the flowers and color in some of the centers.  The DP is from Crate Papers Paper Doll Collection.

Enjoy the Hippity Hop and we hope you see you next week participating along with us!!
