SNR A Faith Perspective Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine's A Faith Perspective Thankful for Friends Faith Blog Hop. Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. We're celebrating the theme of friends and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:



"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. " Ecc4:9-10a

I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a friend who sometimes finds life difficult, so I wanted to encourage her in her faith.

I based the layout on a Splitcoast Stampers challenge.  The stamps used were A Scripture from Our Daily Bread Designs and an SU Stem sayings.  The papers were some from an unnamed pack.  I stamped the main image in Brilliance Pearescent Thyme and sponged the edge of the lemon card base in Memento Bamboo Leaves. 

Three half pearls either side of the reference complete what has basically been a simple card.

The next stop on this blog hop is: Rita Barakat.

Thanks for calling by, and I pray this has blessed you.  I would love it if you have time to leave a comment!! :-)
