Be Thankful...

Good morning!

As it is Sunday, it's time for another new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

Today's hostess, our sweet design sister, Miesje, has chosen Psalm 107:1 for her scripture this week: "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever."

Miesje challenges us this week to create a card or project that shows your thankfulness to God. This was an easy challenge for me - I have so much to be thankful for, and the older I get, I find that it takes very little to make me smile, and to make me thank Him for His goodness.

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Serendipity Stamps. If you have never been to their store, please find a few minutes to check out their beautiful stamps.

My card features a Serendipity Stamps image that you can find here, and one of their gorgeous sentiments that you can see here. The image and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Brown Ink, and distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The only coloring was done with a water based blender pen and distress ink. I wanted a 'barely there' color.




Please head over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog, and see what wonderful words and thoughts that Miesje has to share with us today. While you are there, you can check out the beautiful work of my very talented DT Sisters!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful Sunday, and a week full of Thanksgiving!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
