Salt: John 3:16

Esther chose the topic for this fortnight's Salt challenge:

'How time flies, and it is my turn (Esther) to set the challenge again. With Christmas now around the corner, I thought it best that we still concentrated on the 'true meaning' of Christmas namely -JESUS.

The verse John 3:16 'For God so loved the world that he sent his one and only son, that whoever believed in him shall not perish but have everlasting life'

It is perhaps a well known verse, but it is a real testimony to our Christian faith, the fact that the babe Jesus was born as a SAVIOUR for our sins. So that if YOU believe that he came to die, and ask for forgiveness YOU ALSO will recieve the GIFT of eternal life in heaven. John 15:13 reminds us 'Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.'

Use this verse to inpire you or to meditate on in the next few weeks, and especiallly over the Christmas period. God bless you all and have a wonderful Christmas,
see you in the New year with more challenges!

I found it hard to finalise my ideas for this one, but in the end went for a digi LO (produced with clipart and wordart in Publisher and then tweaked in Digital Image Pro).

Firstly I produced this:

and then changed things a bit to come up with this:

I'm still not sure which I like best, but I think it's probably the second one.


  1. I think I prefer the darker one artistically.

    I just popped by to say Happy Christmas and new year - and here is to a healthy happy and craftful new year!


  2. Thank you so much for the card Hazel! As for your layouts they are both great, I think the first one looks more winter white and Christmassy, where as the second is bold and strong. A lovely depiction of the verse thankyou!

  3. Just SPLENDID Hazel!
    you are so clever, I wouldn't know the first thing about creating something so wonderful as this, I love the wording you've used for the verse, and ofcourse the graphics work perfectly!

    ps...thankyou so much your lovely card arrived today :)

    May you and John have a Blessed and Happy Christmas xxx

  4. Hazel - this is just lovely! So original and visually appealing!! Love it!

  5. Great digi LO, Hazel. I love the dramatic impact of the second version - I think the words have more punch in that version, too.

  6. What a dramatic take on the verse, makes it so real seeing the map of the world. thank you for the card, praying that you will have a peaceful Christmas time x
