Thankful for Friends of Faith Blog Hop

hop ad

Hi everyone!  I was asked to participate in a "Thankful for Friends of Faith" Blog Hop!  Of course, I said yes!  So here are the details:

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

If you're just joining in on the fun, you can find the start of the train here.  First, we would like to take a moment to thank our generous co-sponsors: Layers of Color Stamps, Gina K Designs Stamps and Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. Together with Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today’s blog hop.

Prizes? Oh, yeah! There will be three lucky grand prize winners for today’s event.

To enter, simply hop to the blogs of all of the participating staff members of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, take note of the staff member’s name, and leave a comment on their posts. Then send us an email at
games@scrapbooknewsandreview.com listing each of the staff members who participated in today’s hop. It’s that easy. All entries must be received by Monday, November 16, 2009 at 12 noon, EST and three winners will be randomly chosen to win.

What are the prizes?

One $100 gift certificate from Layers of Color Stamps AND a 6 month subscription to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

One basket of goodies -- four stamp sets from Gina K Designs and a 6 month subscription to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

One set of digital stamps from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and a 3 month subscription to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

In addition, every participating staff member of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine will offer a free one-month subscription to the magazine to one of their lucky visitors by simply  leaving a comment on their blog. That's a lot of chances to win, so let’s get to the Hop! 

So here's my card:

DSCF5836-1

I chose to use some bright, fun DP from Cosmo Cricket sewn to a Certainly Celery mat, then adhered to a So Saffron card base.  Since the patterns are busy, I kept my design very simple.  The computer-generated scripture theme verse was die cut with a Nesties 4 label; the mat behind it is simply two of the same Nesties layered in a staggered fashion--a great way to get some extra mileage from your Nesties!  I also made my own button to top off my gingham bow:DSCF5836

I cut it using SU's Button diecut, then layered it on a couple more cardstock buttons and added some Crystal Effects!  Three little brads on my sentiment finish my card.  And here's the inside, using a sentiment from PTI's Quilter's Sampler Sentiments:

DSCF5835

I have a pretty good idea where this card will be sent!  Thanks so much for visiting today!!  The next stop on this blog hop is: Lorie Souther.  Be sure to stop by and see her project and say hi!!  Blessings to you all!
