Word Art Wednesday - Remembering without Ceasing

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Autumn is in full swing here! I'm not sure I'm ready to let go of the nice weather though.  Especially when having to get up early and the house is cold. Brrr! Well, I'm not here to talk  about the cooling weather but share a card for Word Art Wednesday 😇.  This is a Family Friendly/Anything Goes challenge #304 and #305, and our sponsor this challenge is Simon Says Stamp!!  Yay!! 
Here is my card:

I've use a couple of items that are Simon Says exclusive and they are the "Thanks on a Line" Die and the teeny tiny heart is a stamp from Wild About You set. I ordered this die last year and hadn't used it yet but it is the perfect embellishment.  I've used a piece of pattern paper to cut it out that was from a fall-themed 6x6 pad with fall colors and I love how it has turned out. The colors on the yellow gingham work perfectly. The leaf stamp is from Stampendous and I've stamped it on watercolor paper (Strathford 140lb cold press) that was diecut using the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside die and then using Distress Inks and my MISTI, stamping it multiple times with different fall colored inks.  Once I got a nice combination of inks outlining the image, I began to add water and dropped in color.  After it was dry I stamped the heart, colored it red and added Glossy Accents. The Scripture Art is from 1 Thessalonians 1:3 and I've printed it on vellum. 
I already have a family that I will be sending this card to this week.  They shared their home with me over the weekend as I went to the Beth Moore Living Proof Event in Sacramento this past weekend.  To see their faith in action, their labor of love (hospitality) and the love and hope they have in our Lord Jesus Christ was a real blessing to me.  I will remember their sweet devotion to one another as well.  Thanks to: Jeff, Brandy and children (Katelyn, Hannah, Cody, Caleb, Zach, Grace, Levi, Aaron, Eliza & Maddie) those are the kids still home, the four oldest are either married or living away from home.  Yes, fourteen in all! Each of them exemplify this verse and seeing what God is doing in their family is truly amazing.  To God be all the glory!

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.  1 Thessalonians 1:3

That's it for me today! Thanks for visiting.  Have a blessed week and please remember northern California in your prayers, we are being ravaged by fires.
