Twist of Faith #64 - With Thanks

The card today is a Thanksgiving card for one of our daughters and her husband. He recently lost his job and started his own tree trimming business. It's been amazing to see how they've been learning to trust God as he gets lucrative business every day and on the weekends! (I must also trust God and not quickly volunteer to offer financial assistance.) How beautiful it is to see God's amazing provision! My card today talks about thanking God for unknown blessings already on their way. What a unique perspective on trust combined with thankfulness!

This week our challenge at Twist of Faith is to make a card With Thanks!

Our blog has this scripture that encourages us in our challenge theme!

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to Your name, O Most High"
Psalm 92:1

 And one last reminder...
Your creation should also include a scripture, uplifting verse or positive words/quote that will suit your creation and our theme!

Our sponsor is Eureka Stamps! They have generously offered one random prize winner 5 images of their choosing!  I used their image, "Harvest Basket"  along with the sketch from Mojo Monday #320 rotated to horizontal orientation. I love the way the Eureka image is pre-shaded when you get it. It makes coloring with Copic markers so easy and fun! The Thanksgiving sentiment is from a long retired CTMH stamp that I curved on the block so it would fit over the handle of the basket. The papers are the CTMH Huntington set plus some Vineyard Berry to match the satin ribbon.

I added a Scripture from Verve and a unique CTMH Thanksgiving sentiment on the inside:  "Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you. Thus I will bless you while I live; I will lift up my hands in your name." Psalm 63:3-4.  The other side is the one that says, "Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way."

Thank you for visiting and I hope you'll join our challenge with your own creation of "Thanks."
