Give Thanks - Word Art Wednesday #210

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  This month is flying by isn't it?!  We are getting ready for our annual community Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday that our church sponsors for our town, so this week is really going fast.  I'm teaching a class on Thursday at Scrapper's Edge, then I need to take all the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to the local drop off spot on Friday before doing all the shopping for the community dinner.  Needless too say it's a busy week!  Well enough about me, it's time for this weeks Word Art Wednesday challenge (Anything Goes - Family Friendly).  Hope you'll join us this week and link up.  Here is my card for the challenge:

Here are the ingredients to my card:
Stamp: Unity (pumpkins)
Paper (Neenah bright white) and Doodlebug Designs 
Embossing Folder: Darice Birch
Copic markers
Enamel Dots: Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice
Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched leaves
Distress Inks: Gathered Twigs, Abandoned Coral, Antique Linen, Fired Brick
Memento: Rich Cocoa
I've used clear embossing powder to emboss the pumpkins and leaves - the photo isn't showing that, but I wanted to give a bit more dimension and texture to the card and that is how I achieved it.

What a wonderful song/psalm of David which is our Scripture Art verse this week.  As  believers we have a special responsibility or perhaps I should say special privilege to praise the Lord and proclaim the good news of His salvation. Isn't it a blessing to be able to trust the Living God and know that He cares so much for us?  Be sure to check out 1 Chronicles 16:8-36 to read the complete song/psalm that David wrote, it's no wonder that the Lord called him a "man after Mine own heart" such worship and adoration!  David was so grateful that the ark was now back in it's place and his heart was filled with thanksgiving.  As Christians we should be filled with thanksgiving for what Jesus has done for us! He is so faithful and He dwells within us and we have access to Him 24/7 - that's certainly something to shout/sing about! (just like David). To God be the glory!

Thanks for visiting!



  1. Your card is beautiful, Natalie! I love different textures on the pumpkins, and the wonderful background! Fantastic Scripture verse too, of course! :o)
