Friends of Faith...


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. " Ecclesiastes 4:9-10a
.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog then you know I just write the way I think... I love sharing little "tidbits" of what God has laid on my heart. God has blessed me with such good friends in my life. I believe a friend will be there through thick & thin... you know friends make this ride of life so much better.
.
This is a double page 6x6 scrapbook page I did as a gift for a good friend's birthday. The picture on the left is (from left to right) me, Heather & Ruth, the birthday girl. We three are known as the PFF girls... it is a long story how we got that name... all that needs to be said is that we are the best of friends... we laugh a lot... cry a little... and make people give us strange looks in the process. We are on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend together. They are my friends & they are a blessing from God.

This other card is done with a SU set that I have had for years... it is called "On Angel Wings." The words say, "Friendship is love without wings." I think that is such a pretty saying. What do you think? I really like the monochromatic look of this card... and of course I had to put diamond stickles on the wings.

The next stop on this blog hop is: Danielle Holsapple

Thanks for stopping, enjoy the rest of the hop & come back & visit again... with a grateFUL HEART, carin
