Be Thankful Unto Him

Psalm 100:4 says, "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving; and into His courts with praise:  be thankful unto Him, and bless His name."

Each and every time I make a thank you card, I can't help but think of all the Bible verses that speak of thankfulness, and how we are to give Him thanks.  I just wanted to share with you how very thankful I am to God for the many blessings in my life.  I'd love to hear about the things that make you feel thankful to God.
Again, my colors choices were inspired by the challenge at Play Date Cafe.  Here is their link and inspiration photo.  You will want to check out this wonderfully fun challenge, and play along. - Challenge #127

Next, is the weekly challenge at Simon Says Stamp Blog where the challenge is called "April Showers Bring Spring Flowers".  I love using flowers on my projects.  Here is their link:

Another favorite of mine is Lily Pad Cards.  I've entered this one several times as well.  They always have something fun happening on their blog.  Here is the link to this particular challenge: - Lily Pad Cards/Simon Says Stamp Presents a Flower Challenge

Whenever I am able, and I'm not being restricted as to the number of challenges I'm allowed to combine/enter, I like to play along at Pile it On.  I'm sure I've broken someone's rule somewhere, but at least I know at Pile It On Challenges, they don't mind how many challenges you enter.  That's their whole point, and I LOVE IT.  Here is the link for those of you who want to PILE IT ON to other challengs - like I have done here: - Challenge #15/It's All About "S" - My "S" items for this project include:  Sentiments, Strips of Paper, Stickers, and Sewing/Stitching.

I would also like to remind you all about the challenges at Word Art Wednesdsay.  We would really love to have you play along with us.  I hope you will check it out.

Have a blessed day,
