Be Thankful for the {Little} Things

As we think about Thanksgiving tomorrow, it's a time to be thankful for the Lord's blessings to us.  This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday puts things into perspective, "Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasures and trouble therewith." (Proverbs 15:16)  How much more enjoyable to have few material possessions and know that you are right with the Lord than have many "things" and experience the trouble that comes when you are not following the Lord.  As someone has said, "the most important things in life aren't things." So tomorrow (and every day), let's remember to be thankful for the little things.

This week I decided to use the emboss resist technique with my distress inks.  I stamped the flower images with VersaMark and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Using an ink blending tool, I used 3 colors of distress inks to go over the image panel.  For the mat on the sentiment panel, I die cut it using white cardstock and then used one of the distress inks to help it coordinate.  A sheer ribbon and bow and some bling finish off the card.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Stamps:  WORDart by Karen, Recollections (flower stamps)
Inks:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Tumbled Glass)
Tools/Embellishments:  ribbon (Michael's), rhinestones (Recollections), Spellbinders (Classic Ovals Small), My Favorite Things (Oval Open Scallop Doily die), Stampin' Up embossing powder (Crystal Clear)
