We Give Thanks

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Our theme verse, "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him and bless His name." Psalm 100:4,  reminds us that our expressions of thanksgiving and praise should be directed to the Lord.  He is the source of all of our blessings and definitely deserves the "credit" for giving them to us.  We are so rich in God's blessings, it sure seems the least we can do to daily thank Him.

For my card this week, I used my MFT Blueprints 1 dies and one of the downloadable sketches you can get for them.  I really like these mix-and-match sets.  They make card design so easy!! Deedee's Digis We Give Thanks set was perfect for this week's verse.  I used a 100 Copic on my Pilgrims to add some additional shading and to cover the edge after fussy-cutting.  I added some Wink of Stella to the girl and her pumpkin.  The buckles on the shoes were given some clear star gelly roll pen.  I realize real Pilgrims didn't go for glitz and shine but....another case of artistic license.  :)

The inside is fully decorated.  The buckles on his hat and shoes were given a little shine with a clear star gelly roll pen.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, Georgia Pacific, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  American Crafts (The Classics - Red Fern)
Stamps:  WORDart by Karen, Deedee's Digis (We Give Thanks)
Tools/Embellishments:  Staedtler fine tip marker (black), baker's twine (The Twinery), ribbon (The Paper Studio), Copic 100, My Favorite Things Blueprints 1 dies, Sakura Gelly Roll Pens (white, clear star), Zig Wink of Stella Clear marker

These are sweet! Your doodled borders really tie things together well and the "artistic license" touches add lovely detail. Thanks for joining our Turkeys or Pumpkins Challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
