Lucky in Love!

As we continue down the Path of Positivity, we are pondering Love this month and the idea is to make a project to show someone love.  

Love is an interesting notion as there are so many kinds of love.  The greek language has at least 4 words for love: storge, philia, eros, and agape.  I understand how we can have that many if not more.  Think of how many times you use the word love in a day.

Here is an example of my day:

Feed horses, "Aww, Mommy loves you!!"
Feed dog, "Love you, Cutie!"
Husband leaves for work, "Love you, have a good day.  Be careful on the roads!"
Son calls, "Love you, Sweetie!"
Sit at the computer and type, 'Oooh, love that paper you used on that card!"
Have lunch, "Oh, man, I love this hamburger!"
Pick up grand girl from pre-school, "Hi Baby, Nana loves you!"
Sit down for some tv, "I've always loved that old movie."

You get the idea, we use the word all day never with the same meaning.  Even toward the same person, the word love can be said to convey different feelings in different situations.

So, no matter what sort of love you want to convey, share it with us in a project of any kind over at Path of Positivity!  We'd cherish the chance to share in your love!

I chose to use this lovely image, Wedded Bliss, from Beccy's Place for a card suitable for any loving occasion!  

The paper is from Whimsy and has the stars printed on it! I put it into Cricut Design Space and printed the horseshoe directly on the paper. Then I added two straight lines to be the string holding the shoe. I printed all that off as one image, copic colored the horseshoe/flower image, and used a white gel pen for the baby's breath flowers. 

Next, I distressed the edges and adhered it to a black card base. Finally, I put a gem on the card when done to act as the nailhead. Of course, for the photo, I added a real horseshoe because everyone has an old shoe laying around their craft room, right? hahaha

Sharing some love at the following challenges:

  1. Fantastic card Katrina! I love the contrast between the pretty flowers in the image and the weathered boards in the background. You've done a great job choosing colours for the image, the orange bow really pops off the page as do the little bright pink flowers. Great job!

  2. Wow! That is beautiful! Fantastic project! Love the details!
