Stampin' Sisters in Christ 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

This Sunday is Stampin' Sisters in Christ's 3rd Birthday
and we invite you to celebrate with us by way of a

Birthday Blog Hop!! 

Helen is our lovely challenge hostess.  The challenge is to make a birthday card and is inspired by this Scripture:  
 "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."
John 3:3
 Please be sure to read Helen's devotional on this Scripture on our challenge blog!
For my card today I have used the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals  One Nestabilties, along with Labels Twenty-Eight Nestabilities, Grand Ovals Nestabilities.


The bling is from Want2Scrap
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.
