SSCC 1 Year Birthday Blog Hop

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16


Our Birthday Blog Hop starts at the Stampin' Sisters In Christ blog! You'll want to start there and follow along. If you came from Kristine's blog, then you're on the right path. There are many blessings along the way and chances to win prizes, so we hope you'll join us! All of the blog links will also be there in case there's a break along the way.

This is one of my most favorite verses. It's the first one I ever learned (or memorized). It's amazing to know that God loves us SO much that he gave his son for us. That says it all right there. His love is so great, and I'm so glad to be alive today.

For my card, I printed out the verse on my computer. I used the ancestry paper pack and added some lace to make it a bit vintagey. I also used the Martha Stewart lace punch for the border. Thanks for stopping by.

Your next stop on the Blog hop is Peggysue. Hop on over to see what her favorite verse is:)

Have a blessed week and stay cool!!

Catherine Kraft said...

What a beautiful card, it really speaks to my heart. How I'm still trying to grasp the reality that God loves us all so much that He gave His all when He didn't have to. I'm new to this group and the past couple of days have truly been a blessing.
