Give Thanks - Daydream Designs

Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I've had the issue of thankfulness on my mind an awful lot.  My Bible studies this week have reminded me that we must give thanks in ALL things; even when it's incredibly difficult.  God always knows what's best for us, and His plan is always for our benefit when we're living for him.  So, with that in mind - I wanted to share another card that expresses my incredible thankfulness toward Him, and my unending praise.
 

It's always easy to make cards that bring praise, thanks and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ when I'm using Daydream Designs images.  This is one of the sentiments from the new Thanksgiving Sentiments set.  You can check out all the wonderful images here in Diane's sweet shop:  Daydream Designs.  I also used Simple Stories' Harvest Lane patterned papers and stickers, a Freckled Fawn tag (to print the image on), some PTI jute, and machine stitching.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

I am thankful for many things; my family, my husband, my home, my scrapbook supplies, my friends, my church, my pastor, my Mom and Dad, my health....this list could be endless.  But more than anything, I am grateful to God for sending His precious Son to die for my sins that I might have eternal life.   I just wanted to share the simple fact that I am SO THANKFUL.
 
Blessings,

Karen

  7. Oh, Karen...as always your card is delightfully beautiful, but I'm really drawn to cards that showcase scriptures. You've framed these words of praise so well...love the tag!! Simple Stories papers are my new favorite. This is such a sweet card. Love the layout, and all your little homey touches like the stitching. You always put such a loving, artistic touch to your cards/projects. Just love your work. But even more I love your heart! What a heartwarming post too. We do have so much to be grateful to God for. It would be tempting to look at the conditions of our country and world and despair. But we are already encourage to take heart, and not grow discouraged because Christ has already overcome! With such a sweet victory, we just must give thanks everyday. You are always so gracious in your posts. I'm so blessed to have you in my life...and on my team! Love you, girlfriend!!!
