Heart & Soul Rubber Stamps Co - Hands

I made this card back in December but it seems kind of fitting for Valentine's Day because of the red & pink colors and the heart shaped by the 2 hands.

I bought this stamp a long time ago and am finally getting to upload this first card!  I have another one almost finished with masculine colors.

This stamp company, Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co., is really awesome and I don't think enough people know about it!  It is owned and operated by Sue, and she has stamps for all kinds of occasions --there are tons of sentiments, bible verses, sayings, quotes, and holidays/celebrations.  The stamps come in 3 versions: wood-mounted, unmounted but with red cushion attached, and then just the rubber image untrimmed.  

Here I've used stamps: 1806-hands and 12039-he lives.  The *He Lives* part in this card is referring to Jesus Christ and those are His hands.  I believe they're shaped in a heart because He loves us perfectly.  The essence of Christ is love and this is shown by his willingness to die on the cross for our sins.  Jesus does indeed live today!

When I bought this stamp I was really inspired by the beautiful cards made by Dini Kowal (Mama Dini's blog) --she has 2 hands cards on her blog found here and here.

Thanks for taking a look!
