This months theam

Well hello and welcome to a new year.
 This months blog Theme is Love. Now the ible very clearly tells us what love is in 1 Corinthians 13

 1.If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,b but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I am sure many of you know this verse well if not in full then  in part.I personal love this verse it has taught me some hard lessons in my life but also given me some great comfort.
Today I used the most famous symbol of Love, a simple heart.

I created this heart by drawing round a heart template on to  black  and frosted strink plastic,then taking my black heart I used a white gel pen and ran a stitched design round the edge of the heart then placed a hole at the top for my finding's.
 taking the heart gun I applied heat to the plastic and strink the hearts to there smaller size. Now I add the findings to complete my set.

For a nice alternative I took one of our in house words like honey  clear stamps and stamped it up using black memento ink on the ruff side of the plastic. Once again  I took a hole punch and place in two holes to take the finding's required to finish my second set of earring's.
