Happy Sunday Everyone!!  This is going to be a very short post today since I am very sick and not at all up to write up a post today....I don't want to let my team members down, however, so I am here....

This week's challenge is hosted by the dear and sweet Meisje!!

Meisje chose the verse:
Psalm 107:1 "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever."

When I think of the upcoming Christmas season, I can't help but think about how much He loves us!  What greater celebration is there but to celebrate the greatest gift of all...His son that he sent to be born as a human baby in order for Him to save us for our sins.  Now that is Grace and definitely the greatest gift of all!!

Meisje chose the challenge:

Create a card or project that shows your thankfulness to God. 

Here is my take on the challenge:

I decided to make some of the little gift treats for the Sunday School teachers this year.  As Sunday School Co-Superintendent  I like to make a few different gifts for them thanking them for their time and dedication.

I used the easy candy wrapper template from Perfect Presentation designed by the uber talented Leigh Ann Baird and some sentiments from Whimsy's Digital Gratitude set (designed by Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs) as well as a hand typed verse. 

This picture shows both sides ( both sides are decorated with a sentiment and a verse).  The verse says...Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift! 2 Cor. 9:15

 Most of the embellishing it using sparkly buttons and May Arts Silk ribbon.

 For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi, Meisje, Rebecca, and Patti
