"We Give Thanks to God" Sale at ODBD!!!

"O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever!" 1 Chronicles 16:34 KJV

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!! Today is a day of gratitude, a day of fellowship with our families, a day set aside for special remembrance of how much God loves us and gives all things to us. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 KJV Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your sacrifice for us!


There are so many blessings in my life, personally, that I would not be able to list them here. Along with salvation, health, family, prosperity, and much more, another blessing in my life is Our Daily Bread designs and all of my Christian sisters, the "Breadsticks". Kelley, Rick, and the ODBD crew are the BEST! When you are part of the team, you are family, and you know that you belong to something great, something that makes a difference in people's lives. Being able to reach out to someone with God's Word on a hand-made card or gift fills my heart with joy!

Now, for some deets on my card: I am so very pleased that this card took less than an hour to make...yay! That is quite the miracle for me!! :) I'm absolutely in love with this Prima "Alla Prima" designer paper....the colors are so gorgeous! I chose three colors of matching SU cardstock, dry embossed them with a SU "Square Lattice" embossing folder, cut them out with Spellbinders Nested Maples Leaves dies, sponged the edges, then popped them up with foam tape. The Thanksgiving sentiment from the ODBD set, "Give Thanks" was stamped directly on the designer paper.

Angie, Your card is gorgeously done with non-traditional colors. LOve those dies. I also love that you proclaim your love of Jesus Christ in your entry and who you are. I took a class once that said we were God's Princess. When I feel down it's good for me to remember that as well as I'm a mom, wife, sister, friend. Happiest of Thanksgivings.

Fabulous CAS style! Happy Thanksgiving!

Julie S. said...

I love the simplicity of your design, & your choice of colors. They really 'pop.' I am a little confused, though, since the card you show on your blog doesn't match the example above your name link on the email Kelly sent out anouncing this Thanksgiving blog hop. Since that example was also an awesome design, I'm wondering where I can see it in more detail?

Hi Angie~

I just love this card! The gorgeous non-traditional colors are so much fun! Wouldn't it be fun if we really could go out and paint a real tree any color...with any ODBD stamps?!

I love the Sentiment...it looks so large! Was this from the Scrapbook words set? And, the ribbon is gorgeous. I love the edges!

Great Job! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

He IS Able!
