Only One Life – by Heidi Blankenship

Only one life, ’twill soon be past.

Only what’s done for Christ will last.

C.T. Studd

That really puts things into perspective, now doesn’t it!  LOVE those words and the reminder they send. Heidi used them beautifully on her sunflower card today. This card combines masking, gold heat embossing, water coloring and ink blending for the background. Gorgeous! Take a look:
