Be Thankful


I'm excited to be posting on my blog today as a new member of the Crafters of Faith blogging group on Splitcoaststampers!  This month Sharon is our hostess and asked us to create a card of thankfulness.  She challenges us with this scripture verse:

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus".  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I have created a card using the  Maybelle R.O. image "Acorn Girl":


The challenge requirements also included using at least two design papers and an embellishment.  I thought I'd take a stab at creating a ribbon flower so I pulled out  two different ribbons and jute to create my flower.

I used the following for my card:  "Autumn Word Collage" sentiment from Create with TLC, PTI Text-Style First Fruits design paper, ribbon and jute from my stash, Spellbinders dies, Martha Stewart punch, Creative Memories leaf punch, dew drops, ribbon and jute, Copic Markers and distress inks.

Thanks for visiting and please be sure to visit my Crafters of Faith sister's blogs which are listed on my sidebar.

Marsha, this is such a pretty card. I love the cute little girl with her pumpkins. You used Canada's symbolic maple leafs as well (so did April). Awesome job! Thanks for playing along with me this month.
