john 3:16

Morning Song

My Bible study group wanted to continue to meet over the summer but didn't want to meet every month so I choose a book to read and then discuss. We met twice a month in June, July, and August. The book was Max Lucado's book 3:16. The book takes one of the most recognizable verses in the Bible and breaks it down by section talking about why each section, and then the entire verse, is so paramount to a Christian's belief. I enjoyed the study of the verse immensely and had a couple of wonderful aha moments.

On the afternoon of the last day of the study I decided to make the participants a little something so that they will have a reminder of this study. It seemed obvious to me that it should be a bookmark. I used both PTI's Everyday Blessings set and a stamp that I have of John 3:16, stamped them on white cardstock, layered them on a background, added some ribbon and taadaa...a bookmark. They are pretty small at 1 7/8" x 3 1/4" but everyone seemed to like them so... Booyah

Tomorrow my friend, Courtney, will start having Friday challenges on her blog. She has asked me if I will participate by having a sample ready for you guys to see of the challenge on Friday. How do you say no to a friend so...on Friday's it will be Created by Courtney Challenges! Much like the 3LD challenges we will encourage you to make something and post it somewhere on the web then link to it on Courtney's blog. Of course there is winnin' goin' on too so you must come back tomorrow and see what it is all about!

I hope you all have a super Thursday! See you tomorrow! Bouquet

With all the stuff going on in the world I am so thankful that so many stamp companies have decided to come out with inspirational, bible verse stamps for us to get. I think keeping these quotes in our thoughts, and our crafts is awesome. Everyone can use these in their collection. TFS!!!
