Purple Thanks

Happy Friday night all! Well, this has been a stamper's dream week for me! Thank you God for this because my week otherwise was not so fun. But I am going to focus on the wonderful gifts He has given me this week!

First of all, I received the new Our Daily Bread designs sets for November and they are so gorgeous! I've already shown a couple of peeks, but please come back on Sunday to join our blog hop fun and new challenge! Then I found out that I had won one of the random prizes from the Midnight Madness Blog Hop!!! Thanks ladies!!! I also won a Taylored Expression stamp set from the Stampin ' Sisters in Christ Blog! Wow! Thank you all too!

And last but certainly not least, I was asked to guest design with the Midnight Madness Team during the month of November! Now is that a cool week or what?!!! I am still pinching myself!!!

So, I made this card for the Ways to Use It Challenge to use purple and for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week to make a card expressing my thankfulness for someone or something they have done. The scripture reference is this:

I Chronicles 16:34
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.”

I used Almost Amethyst and Lavender Lace with Black and White. I scored a lattice pattern with my scor-pal. I layered several spellbinders diecuts, sponged the white circle while still inside the die. The images are from a stamp set by Inkadinkado called Fancy That. I outlined the sentiment and colored the butterflies with copic markers. I added lots of rhinestones and then sprayed it all with Glimmer Mist!

I thank you all for visiting with me regularly
and leaving me such sweet, wonderful comments!
I am thankful for YOU!
