Casing Kelley!

CASE-Kelley

Hello my friends!  Over on the ODBD Forum, there's a special CASE ARTIST challenge up!  Our assignment this week is to Case ODBD Owner, Kelley Holland!  Many of you might not know that she was an avid card maker and as such sensed the need for more Christian themed stamps for the stamping community.  That is how the ODBD story began!  So today, I have cased this card.  Hope you can play along!  Read all the details on the forum, and if you haven't joined yet... come on... join now!  It's free and there are challenges to play in, fellowship to be had, prayer support and friendship to enjoy! 

I have used Love One Another and God's Love to create this card.  I used just part of the verse to use just the word Love for this.

  Here are the card details:
CS: Bazzill Bling
DP: SEI
Ink: Memento, THoltz Distress
Accessories:  Spellbinders Classic Ovals Lg, Sm, Lacey Ovals and Fancy Tags 2
Cheery Lynn Anastasia die, CB embossing folder, May Arts silk ribbon, Copics, Spica Glitter Pen, ZVA Creative Pearl flourishes

This week's Stampin Sisters in Christ verse is John 3:16.  This is a verse most of us know by heart and can quote it easily... but how much do we focus on what it really says?  I think about the entire Bible message is summed up in this one verse!

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.  Wow!  Have any of you been listening to Focus on the Family on the radio lately?  Have you heard the children quoting this verse with their own little emphasis?  If not try to find it on a Christian radio station near you!  I love the "wow" at the end!  Truly it IS a wow verse!  There is no greater love than this... that a man would lay down his life for another!!!  Thank you Lord!
