Hello Friends!!!  This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it!!!  Another beautiful fall day.  The days seem to be a little cooler but beautiful all the same.  Yesterday was rainy and cold so the sun being out is definitely more motivating.  Yesterday I could stay in my jammies all day.  LOL! I want to share a creation I made for this week's Shining the Light challenge.

This week's challenge:  
Use Fall colors and a verse.

For my creation I made a little more CAS card for me.  I cut out the apples from the wreath in the Apple Wreath stamp set at Our Daily Bread Designs.  The verse is from Pumpkin Wreath.  The  texture was created with the Spellbinders Lattice die and some pearls.  The semi circle was cut out of the first panel with a Standard Circle from spellbinders and outlined with the Spellbinder Scalloped Circle.

  This verse could be used any time but it is perfect for Thanksgiving as well.  I know that my family and I have so much thankful after our recent move.  I know and have felt God's presence and leading in all we have done.  Thank you God for always being with us!!

"Our God, we Thank You and Praise Your Glorious Name.  1 Chronicles 29:13"

Our Daily Bread Designs, Apple Wreath, Pumpkin Wreath
Card Recipe:
ODBD Stamps used: Pumpkin Wreath and Apple Wreath

This is really pretty, and such a wonderful (less used) verse. I love it! Thanks, of course, for sharing it with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Your cards are always such a blessing to me personally, and I appreciate your love and support of WAW. God is just SO GOOD, and I am so grateful that He brought you into my life. (through your dear daughter, if you remember). He is just wonderful for giving us dear Christian friends on blogland.
