Give with Gratefulness

My turn this week for the SALT challenge "A self explanitory topic this week of GIVE THANKS (with a grateful heart)
Isn't there an abundance of things that we can be grateful to God for?! For starters - sending his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sin, so that whoever believes in him will not perish eternally in hell, but live with Him forever and ever and ever in heaven- praise God! Ok so it might not be easy to thank God in the hard times, but lets not forget all the blessings he has given to us and be thankful for them! Amen?!"
Punched flower shapes and inners with off cuts, and decorated with cabachon gems, and mini primas with fern leaves. mounted on printed card

Reccommend RAK

I know I used to scratch my head when the letters RAK came up so for those who dont know they stand for Random Act of Kindness. I made this cad for a lady who's husband is going through a difficult time with his health, so I made this card to give her a long with some flowers and Apple and Berry crumble I made, afterwards I realised it fitted the Just Bex Forum challenge perfectly- a recipe of ribbon, circles/dots and 3 of something- dont you just love it when a plan comes together, the lady was pleased to recieve the items and said that she hadnt got a pudding for after there meal tonight! Praise the Lord another plan coming to together perfectly!

The White Stuff

Completed this sinmplae card for the Jut Bex forum of leaving a white space somewhere on your card, most of you know this can be a mean task for me, but I like the way this came out. The big snowflake is a pin, so can be taken off the card and used afterwards.

This card is for a friend who kindly helped with my dreaded tax returns forms! Couldnt have done it without her thank you! She likes hearts so managed to incorporate a little charm to keep her happy :)
Posted some swirls to a fellow blogger, and decided to use some on the card I made for her- enjoy Jilly!
