This is just a quick post. I'm getting lots of layouts and cards ready for a workshop this weekend. When things get really busy, I'm trying to remind myself to be thankful for the little things. It's so easy to overlook the blessings He's given me when my mind is so focused on the busy-ness. I've missed some of the Mojo Monday Sketches lately, so I had to use this one for a Thanksgiving card.
I used the CTMH Huntington paper pack and three CTMH stamp sets for this one. The sentiment is from Always Grateful. The three banner pieces were cut at 1" with Cricut Art Philosophy and stamped with All the Details using Olive, Barn Red, and Saddle inks. The great fall flower image is from the Happy Autumn set and was inked with Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, and Barn Red using the rock and roll technique. I used The Paper Studio embossing folder called Quatrefoil because it seemed to match the Barn Red patterned paper fairly well. I added a few brown sparkles to go with the little banners.
As I finish this post, I find my heart singing the old hymn...
There shall be showers of blessing:This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.
May God bless you through the busy times and fill your heart with gratitude for the little things and the showers of blessings He gives!
