Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope everyone is enjoying the weather and has as nice of weather as we do.  It is about 70 degrees and sunny...a perfect fall day.  I just love Fall when we can see the change of the leaves and the beauty of creation!!

Well ....since today is Sunday, it is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.  This week's challenge is hosted by the sweet and lovely Patti!

Patti chose the verse:
1 Timothy 4:4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.

We all have so much to be thankful for as we reflect on our lives.  Even amongst our hardships there is so much to be thankful. All gifts are of God.  So let us rejoice in it!!  God has given me family, friends, the beauty of nature, health and the list goes on.  How about you...are you thankful for what you have been given.  Even among your hardships, there is something to be thankful for, whether it be the prayers others bestow on us, the hands people lend to us.....

Patti chose the challenge: To Create a Thanksgiving or Thanks you card.

Here is my take on the challenge:
Stamp-Our Daily Bread Designs- Randi's Song and Wood Background (sentiment is from God loves You- I added an s to the word)
Paper-Stampin UP Haiku, ivory CS
Accessories- Ivory ribbon, ivory lace, rhinestones

 Kaboodle doodles- Fall
Sentimental Sundays- tags
Prairie fairy- tags or tickets
Stampin B's -Fall card
Charisma- Fall card

Hi Chris
what lovely autumnal colours on your card.

I think you are right we all have so much to be thankful for. I don't always enjoy the best of health, so as you can imagine not every day is a good day for me, BUT on my good days I am so grateful for all that I have & enjoy.
hugs

Oh, I feel a CASE coming on with this beauty! I can't believe it's 70 in New York right now! That's great weather this time of year! Our leaves haven't even started to turn yet, but I do miss being able to drive along the lake shore of Canandaigua Lake to see the beauty that God has created, which you've captured in this card so well. Have a very blessed week Chris!
