This past week I discovered a wonderful blog Stampin’ Sisters in Christ.  Each week they have a challenge based on a scripture.  This week’s scripture is I Chronicles 16:34 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: his love endures forever.” (NIV).


The challenge is to “Make a card that expresses your thankfulness for someone or something they have done, or that encourages someone to be thankful.”  The card I made is to encourage me to be thankful for this beautiful world that He created.  Every time I see a sunset I am reminded of how grateful I am that He would share it with me.


I first sponged all the colors onto a cream card stock.  Then all the images were stamped with Memento “Tuxedo Black” ink.  The ground was made by using the ink pad directly onto the card stock.  The birds have been colored in with a Copic Marker.


I hope you have something beautiful in your life that you can be thankful for.  Maybe join in the fun and play along, too!

Happy Crafting!!
