CPS130 All Things Grow with Love...

Can you imagine growing something without love? Whether it's raising your children, nuturing a treasured friendship, or even growing something using dirt, love is involved when you want goodness in return. Looking back on raising my children, there are so many things I wish that I had done differently, but when seeing them, as adults, they have made my heart proud. The friendships that have grown throughout the years, especially the ones made as a very young woman, have provided so many treasures, such as letters, gifts, phone calls, or visits to my home. I truly believe that love helps to make things grow, and hopefully you believe the same way.

The card below has the flower leaves stitched with floss using a template found at a scrapbook store last week. I used to cross stitch on a regular basis, but since finding paper crafts, that hobby has taken a back seat :-( The sketch is from CPS and was a fun one to use this week.

Thank you for stopping by and may the rest of the weekend bring sunshine and love into your life.
