We have so many things to be thankful for in life, and when we look around us or listen to the news, we always hear of someone who doesn't have as much as we have. I heard a saying once that was very thought-provoking - 'Count your blessings by what you have not by what you don't have'.
Today's card is one I made for someone who gave me and my husband a gift for our silver anniversary. I used the same leaves (Joy Crafts) on yesterday's card (which I first saw over here on Bridget's blog) but I think they are so cute, I had to use them again! The dotty framed card was done using a Sizzix bookplate embossing folder and then I added some jute from The Ribbon Girls. I added a little leaf and sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps, called Blessed by You. Then I added some embossed leaves in various colours to the jute. Voila!
I am entering this card into three challenges:
- The Paper Players (a CAS card with a frame)
- Word Art Wednesday (Challenge #50- Blessings from God)
- The Ribbon Girls October Colour Challenge - again
Thanks for looking and may the Lord be your blessing today!
