In Everything Give Thanks - Stamp 'n Send challenge and WAW #51

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Hope you are enjoying your day!  We've had a definite swing in the weather and it's turned very cold.  Not the norm for us, usually October is still very warm, but today we can see the snow up on the mountain and there is a definite chill in the air!  A wonderful day to stay indoors and craft away!! Which as soon as I finish this post, that is my plan! 
Here is the inspiration photo and colors for my card which is the third challenge  for the Taylored Expressions Stamp 'n Send event that has been ongoing since World Cardmaking Day.  You can find this weeks challenge info at Splitcoast Stampers TE forum HERE.

  I have a friend I will be sending this to, she is also a pastor's wife and is always encouraging me, so now it's my turn to give some encouragement.  I will be sharing this at Word Art Wednesday challenge #51 (Anything Goes), also!

Here is the list of the ingredients:Stamp: Taylored Expressions - Cozy Cabin set; Paper: Simple Stories Harvest Lane, Bazzill Card Stock, Ribbon (Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit Oct 2012); Button (Key Ingredient Kit Sept. 2012); Copics: E19, E33, E25, E39, E57, E79, E89; Y00, Y11, W0, W5, R37, R38.

I've been really enjoying the Jennifer Rothchild Bible study called Missing Pieces.  Todays lesson was on how we react when God doesn't answer our prayer according to our will or desire.  Very thought provoking and convicting. I am so thankful today that I can trust God's Word to be true and sure and is a firm foundation.   Even more importantly I can have faith in God and know that He indeed knows what's best for me and even if the answer is no or wait, I can trust Him.  God is faithful.

 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:20-21

Thanks for visiting!!

  3. What an amazingly beautiful and detailed card. Wow Nat! I've been doing Healed & Set Free Bible Study by Tammy Brown, a Calvary Chapel Pastor's Wife and some bricks are falling off and there isn't as much ice running through my veins. I feel so much better physically being away from the toxicity and abuse.
