Thankful for Friends of Faith 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

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!

MY CARD:
I decided to make this shadow box card with this cute li'l gardener girl. The sentiment on the front says "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy--they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marsel Proust" I am thankful for all my blog friends who visit and choose to connect with me through comments left, for if it were not for these wonderful words of encouragement, many friendships would not have been made. Thank you for your friendship!
The next stop on this blog hop is: Pamela Young
I also will be giving away a little prize of my own, drawn randomly from comments left on my blog hop post here. Winner will be announced at the end of the hop Sunday night. Thank You!
