With the Blog Hop theme being Friends, the scripture that came to mind for me this one - what better friend can we have than Jesus!!! 
I am excited to be using one of the Layers of Color New Release sets Butterfly Collector and Flutterescent along with the Gothic Crosses set, which is a favourite of mine!!   The scripture is computer generated .


The butterfly is symbolic of New Life and we find that at the cross...and the heart added to the centre of the cross represents God's heart of love for us all!  I love symbolism and this one is particularly meaningful for me - without it we would be lost - literally!!


The next stop on this blog hop is the lovely Sue McMahon. 

I would like to take this opportinity to thank Anne House for organising this amazing event, I am so proud and honoured to be a part of this occassion!  I am looking forward to meeting everyone as I make my way around the Blog Hop!! 

Thank you for stopping by today and for your encouraging comments - I love seeing that you have visited.  Be prepared to be totally blessed by the gorgeous creations that are yet to come....get a hot cup of coffee and put your feet up....and then continue on, I may bang into you as I make my way along the Blog Hop as well!  God bless you and all the best for the prizes!! Wahoo!
