November 10, 2009 Le Vite- The Vines...
Le Vite... The Vines
This card was inspired by a book... "4000 Flower & Plant Motifs: A Sourcebook" by Graham Leslie McCallum. My friend, Kathy, owns it and leant it me.
Thank you, so much...
I tell you, my heart got so excited over the beauty and potential of this book. The creative ideas flowed, and I poured over the images as if they were chocolate morsels to my creative soul. I did NOT replicate the images, and would prefer not to; but I did glean ideas from two specific examples on pages 71 and 334.
I was also reminded about a verse from John 15:5, where Jesus says of Himself, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit..."
I made this card after days of brainstorming for inspiration for a card for my Father-in-law's birthday. When this idea came up, I KNEW it would be perfect for him.
So... Happy Birthday, Dad!
P.S. Please pray for my father-in-law and our family as we deal with the death of my father-in-law's 103 year old mother, my husband's grandmother, this past Tuesday, the 10th. (The exact day this cut was completed.)
