Friends of Faith blog hop


Welcome to my contribution for the Friends of Faith blog hop! And if you're just popping in and missed the beginning, you should start off here, or go to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog for the link to the next entry. There are lots of prizes and fabulous artwork to view on this hop, so you don't want to miss a single post!

This hop is sponsored by the Scrapbook News and Review Magazine's A Faith Perspective and the theme is: Thankful for Friends of Faith Blog Hop. Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God.

The verse that this hop is based upon is from Ecc 4:9-10a "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up."

If you did stop here, I should say I am not participating individually in the hop, but as part of the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog, so you need to go there to follow along properly with the hop. That being said, there are some cool hop sponsors, like Layers of Color Stamps, Gina K Designs and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Together with Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today's blog hop.

For my card I started off with this cute digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I so often just make 'girl' cards I thought I'd try my hand at a boy card. I think a beautiful expression of friendship can be between siblings. My three older kids are very close to each other; they can confide in one another, they keep each other accountable in their Christian walk and they help each other through tough times. Here you have an older brother reading a book to baby . . . boy? Girl? Doesn't matter really, they are spending time with each other, building their friendship.

I am participating in another hop on Saturday, for Operation Write Home, so if you click on my general blog link, you can see that post as well, just above this one. Thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil
Paper: Doodlebug Designs, Neenah Solar White, SU cocoa
Other: prismacolor pencils and gamsol, froggie eyelets, PTI new leaf and aqua buttons, twine

Oh, I love your froggie eyelets with this sweet image...and I am thankful for our girls' closeness, although usually it is more of a conspiracy than an accountability relationship...but still...
Your card is pure innocence and sweetness!

What a beautiful card. The image reminds me of my grand kids. They love to "read" (2&3 years olds).

I love this card, too. I remember when my boys got along like that. Ha!

Actually, they still do...which makes me so happy.

What a sweet card, love all the coloring and design! I'm sorry I missed it from the original blog hop! I just took a picture of my two grandkids "reading" it was so cute! They are only toddlers (cousins).
