SSCC #14 ~ Giving Thanks

This week at the SSCC, our hostess Helen gave us this wonderful scripture from Galatians 6:9 "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."






The challenge this week is to pay homage to the spirit of Thanksgiving and put Christmas cards to the side :) I have so much to be grateful for and am glad this gave me the opportunity to make a few Thanksgiving cards and reflect on harvesting in doing good. So for my card I kept the autumn feel and hoped for a "rustic" look ~ I envisioned all the colors of plowed fields, the last of the leaves still on the Northern trees, wooden fences around sprawling fields .... I love this old set from SU and added that as my sentiment :) I made the same card and inverted it horizontal for one, vertical for the other ... hence, no need to lean sideways, lol! TFL!
