Bible Verse Thursday - Give Thanks!

Happy Friday, everyone! After a busy week, I'm thankful to have some down time this weekend! This week's Bible Verse Thursday theme over at Christian Paper Crafts is 'Thankful for God's Love'. I have used the 'Give Thanks' set by Our Daily Bread designs for my sample. When I think about how much God loves us, it is hard to wrap my mind around what it really means! I pray daily for the Lord to soften my heart....that I could love others as much as He loves us. That is a big order, however, He created the heavens, the earth, and all that there is, so this should be small potatoes for Him, if I could only get my stiff-neck out of the way!


I wanted to make the most of the rich colors in this SEI designer paper, so I stamped the image in More Mustard, then overstamped the scripture verse in black. Once the circle was cut, I sponged Cajun Craze around the edge of the die.
