In Everything, Give Thanks – LSC193 Fun with Shapes

In 1st Thessalonians Paul says “In everything, give Thanks.”  In Psalms we read: “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night.” (Psalm 92:1-2)

Although when we think of  Thanksgiving we are reminded of the Pilgrim’s gratefulness for their deliverance from religious persecution and for a bountiful harvest, it is also wonderful time to celebrate all of God’s blessings to us and the continued grace he provides in our lives.  It is difficult for me to count my blessings because the list is endless.  I thank God for the ultimate gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and the comfort in knowing that my redeemer lives.lsc193-give-thanks

Today’s Limited Supplies Challenge was to use a circle and rectangle on our card and the only embellishment we could use was ribbon.  I’ve had this harvest stamp for a couple of years and haven’t used it, so today I stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with about twenty or so SU! markers.  Then, I used my brand new Nestabilities and layered the scallop circles topped with the colored image.  It is sooooo pretty and I am going to make a few more for family and special friends for Thanksgiving.  The inside has the sentiment from Country Pleasures:  “Give thanks and in all things be grateful.”

Supplies used:  Stamps:  Inkadinkado Harvest, Weathered BG, Lovely as a Tree; Paper: Confetti Cream, River Rock, Really Rust, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla; Ink: Always Artichoke, Many SU! Markers; Accessories:  Nestabilities, Gold Satin ribbon, SU! Markers, Dimensionals.

I pray that this holiday season brings each of you opportunities to thank God for all things.

Many blessings to all,

Diane
