Celebrating You: John 3:3


This Sunday is SSiC's 3rd Birthday and we invite you to celebrate with us by way of a Birthday Blog Hop!! I loved this saying because it is YOU, our faithful followers who we celebrate! Thank you for joining us!


Helen is our lovely challenge hostess.  The challenge is to make a birthday card and is inspired by this Scripture:  John 3:3. Please be sure to read Helen's devotional on this Scripture on our challenge blog!
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Our challenge sponsor is Verses, who is donating a $15 Gift Card to one random participant in our card challenge (please link your card in our Linky) and as always, we will pick 3 Shining Stars who's cards will be showcased the following Tuesday on our blog!

And now for the Blog Hop!  We will pick 3 random winners who complete the hop and who leave a comment on all our DT's blogs!  Hoppers do not have to make a card and enter our challenge, although we'd love it if they did!  Hoppers could win one of the following:

$20 GC to Daydream Designs,
3 Free digis from The Digi Garden,
and 3 digi sets from Carly's Cuties

Winners from the blog hop will be announced on Tuesday, Sept. 11th along with our challenge winner and Shining Stars.

You have done so well with using orange on your card. This is one colour that I stay away from. I like the stamp that you have used. Tracy B.

Miesje, this is such a beautifully bright and delightful card. Love the way you showcased the image with the sponged frame and coordinating banner. I totally fun and happy card. I just love being connected to you and am so grateful God brought us together through SSIC. I'm so blessed by your sweet spirit, your wonderful talent and your love for your Savior. You always make me smile! Hope you have a lovely week...touched by our God.

I really like that you've written "Let's celebrate you" instead of Happy Birthday since this is a spriritual rebirth. Technically your card is very nice with the embossing, coloring, shapes and the balloons. I especially like the colors of the card. It could be given to either a girl or boy. God bless you!

Karen said...

i love the little balloons!!

Hi there, Miesje! As soon as I saw your darling birthday card, I thought to myself, "I'll bet that's one of Diane's darling images she used", and sure enough...it is. Just adorable, and you've done a great job with it. I want to say THANK YOU for crafting so faithfully at SSIC for the glory of the Lord. You all do so much to bring other crafters the joy and love of Jesus, and it is my prayers that our challenge blogs will bring Him glory and draw others into a closer relationship with Him. Thanks for all you do to be an encouragement to others through your crafting. I appreciate your efforts, and all the inspiration I get from you!
Have a blesed week, and may God bless you.
Your friend and Sister in the Lord Jesus Christ,
Karen Letchworth

P.S. I hope you will come by and play along with us this week at Word Art Wednesday (Sister site to SSIC). I have mentioned the hop on our blog and hope many will join in the fun.
Blessings,
Karen
