Sweet Friends


I made this card today for the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 219: Stamp It Again.
I needed to make a sympathy card today for a friend who lost her brother and I have always loved this Stampin' Up! set, Embrace Life, for so many different occasions. The sentiment is from Always in My Thoughts.

I want to thank several friends today for giving me a special award. It is a humbling honor and I wanted to thank them for their generosity and kindness. Sharing Christ is the most important thing I do in my life.

Barb G., Betty W., Chris O., Dawn L., Diane N., and Faith W. awarded the to me. Thank you so much!

"The Exalting Christ Blog Award" is given to bloggers who consistently exalt the name of Christ on their blogs. What a joy to see crafters blend their passion for Christ and paper crafting. This award is given to bloggers who share Christ through their posts or through the design of their artwork. We are commanded in Scripture to be 'salt and light' sharing the Good News of Jesus no matter where we are (Matthew 5:13-16). This award is just a way members of Women to Women: Sharing Jesus can say thanks for exalting Christ with us!"

Rules:

Post the blog award in a regular post on your blog with the explanation, including the original link to WTW and the rules for passing the award along

1. Name five people to whom you want to offer this award and link to their blogs. The blogs need to obviously exalt Christ in some manner.
2. Contact the bloggers you have named to let them know they can pick up their blog award from you.
3. Invite them to permanently display the WTW blog badge and/or the award on their blogs. The badge can be obtained on the WTW site."

I am awarding this to Juliana, Diane,
Christine, Holly, and a brand new blog from Sandee!
(You can see Sandee's artwork here while we are waiting for her blog!)

Well Judy..there's isn't an award out there that would mean as much to me as this. I pray that my faith in Christ shows not just in what I create, but also in what I say.

Thank you. I haven't ever posted blog awards before...but this one might get me started :)
