Crafters of Faith - October

Hello Everyone!

The Crafters of Faith group on SCS is posting their October challenge.   Sharon, posed a great challenge for this month as our hostess.

Our challenge is to create a card that is in theme with Thanksgiving or a thank you card.  I chose to work on a thank you card.  Sharon loves autumn, so I thought that I would keep in theme with using autumn colors.  They are some of my favorite colors as well.

I found some pretty DP that had 'thankful' wording on it.  I coupled it with a sentiment from a Stampin' UP! set, circa older than dirt!   The sentiment was all in a straight line, so I stamped each word separately to make it a wee bit more the size and shape I was looking for.

We all have so much to be thankful for.  Take a minute and think of what you are thankful for.  Try sharing with just one person today what they do to make you thankful.   Careful!  It might just become a habit!  ;)

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.   ~Psalm 107:1

Tami, this card is serene and elegant. I love everything about it: the colors, the layout, how you offset the scalloped squares, the rustic (pewter?) eyelets - EVERYTHING!
I am thankful for your friendship my dear! And you have given us a great reminder - to share with someone else why they are special. Wise advice!

Tami, what a stunning masterpiece! I love the soft subtle soothing feel of this card! Very regal!!! And I love how you placed those three pearls/brads (not sure which) on your sentiment... and of course how you cleverly re-arranged the way the words were on the stamp. Aren't you smart!!!

I'm glad we're Crafters of Faith together!
