Carriers of Faith ~ Friendship



I am back with another Carriers of Faith challenge.  Jeanette is our hostess this month and she gave us this wonderful theme:

September Challenge – Friendship

Two are better than one, because hey have a good return for their work;
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Also, if tow lie down together, they will keep warm,
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)

One of my favorite passages in the Bible is Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. It reminds me that God did not create us for isolation. He wants us to connect with other believers.

There really are many applications found in these four verses, but for the purpose of this month’s challenge, I would like us to focus on Christian friendship and create a card (or scrapbook page, etc) that focuses on friendship.  


I found this stamp in the drawer that has friendship stamps and I do not think it has ever seen ink. I think it is perfect for this challenge!  This is what true friends are all about.........................



Here is the inside of my card:


 

Image/Sentiment—Paperbag Studios Rubber Stamp-Prosperity

Cardstock/Patterned Paper—Gina K White; Stampin' Up Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay; Authentique Seasons-Spring Three Patterned Paper

Ink--SU Bermuda Bay

Please check out the blogs of all of the Carriers of Faith.  I am sure you will enjoy all the wonderful creations!  All of the blogs are listed on my right sidebar. Thanks for joining us this month.

Oh Barb... what a PERFECT quote on this lovely card. And yes, it is definitely appropriate for the theme of this month's challenge.
