Mojo Monday 422 Lovingkindness Card

I am truly a scrappy crafter. My hubby can attest to the fact that I always seem to have scraps on my workspace. Here's a card I made using the Mojo Monday sketch this week. All of the scraps were still on my desk from the weekend except the very old CTMH "Grace" yellow panel for the verse, which was in my well-stocked scrap drawer for yellow scraps.

In this season of thankfulness I chose to craft a card with this lovely Psalm stamp from Verve:
"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" I wanted it to be a bright, cheerful card for a friend as a happy recognition that God has blessed us in so many ways and we will praise Him for it. The verse I chose goes along with the Scripture inspiration at Scrapping Everyday Miracles:

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; 
His love endures forever.
Psalm 107:1

All of the supplies were from CTMH except for the Spellbinder's leaf die I used and the ribbon from my stash. I daubed Pomegranate and Saffron inks on the New England Ivy leaves for dimension and a fall look.

 Thank you for visiting. May God bless you with an abundance of His lovingkindness.
