Feeling so incredibly blessed

It's Thanksgiving week in the US, but unfortunately we don't have that in Croatia. But, that shouldn't stop my family and I from celebrating the holiday as we have much to be thankful for. We have the obvious reasons: loving parents/grandparents...friends from all over the world...our church family in Croatia...a warm home...healthy bodies, etc. There are also minor reasons: a computer to communicate with...a good night's sleep...a soothing cup of tea...the list goes on and on.

But above all these, we rejoice in the gift who is Christ Jesus. He has lavished us with every spiritual blessing (Eph 1:3ff). He has made us see the blessings, big and small, in our life with appreciation. We have joy, hope, peace and contentment because of Him. We have no reason to worry for anything because we know God is in control and He is good. We have His Word to guide us in our everyday life. We enjoy and love our life. In short, we feel incredibly blessed because of Him. And what a great gift that is! How about you? What makes you feel incredibly blessed today?

Today I have two cards to share for the StampTV sketch #3 and color spotlight #2 challenges. I used Heirloom Ornaments stamps for both. The papers for the above card are Cosmo Cricket Winter Mittens. The background was stamped with the music stamp from Vintage Borders. The card below uses Graphic 45 Christmas Past papers,some hand-dyed seam bindings and a Prima flower.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! I had avoided looking at this set because I am on a self-imposed "use what I have and don't buy anymore until I make 100 cards" challenge- but your world card just moved this set to the top of my list! I have been looking for a good stamp of the world and that one is perfect!

    We truly have much to be grateful for....from the big things to the little blessings in the day (like a cup of hot tea!)

  10. Lovely cards, Nina!
    Having my heart transformed by Christ into a thankful person is what I'm most thankful for today...and a loving family inside a warm, safe and cozy home as it snows outside. Love it!
