Viva La Verve October Sketch 1 Thankfulness Cards

Is it obvious? I love fall colors, leaves, and the theme of giving thanks! I have a lot of fall leaves stamp sets. I used the rock and roll technique to color the edges of this retired one with different colors.

Here are the two cards I made using this sketch. I used one of the Verve Plain Janes, 1 Chronicles 16:34: "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever." Both cards use my old retired CTMH papers that have autumn colors, since I am determined to use it all up.   All six papers used are from different packets, different years. The bronze shimmer trim is the only current CTMH product.

I used a beautiful word art from Word Art Wednesday from November 2014, "Giving thanks always for all things unto God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20"  The words "always" and "all things" remind me that I need to be much more thankful and inclusive, thanking God for the big things, the little things, the good and the bad.

Thank you for visiting! I thank God for you and ask that He bless your creating that you, in turn, may bless others!

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:
