I needed a sympathy card, so I used the Matthew 5:4 stamp and paired it with one of my favorite colour combinations of soft pink and grey.  Added the adorable distressed hearts to form a cluster and frame the sentiment along with a few bits of bling to bring a bit of sparkle to the muted tones.  Finished things off with a touch of twine.

Love John 3:18, such a fabulous verse and oh so true!  Actions speak so much louder than words and when words are spoken after them, you have proof in the pudding so to speak.  Time is a commodity you never get back and it is a very valuable one these days with our busy schedules, so when you take time to do something for someone, it speaks volumes without a word having to be uttered.  Of course, I just had to add the new Verve flower as I absolutely love it.
