Every good thing

There are so many things for which I'm thankful:
my children, our house, our wonderful town, great friends,
a healthy body, the sunshine, the fact that summer is on its way, 
watermelon, my bike, a hobby I adore & the friends I've made through it,
good books to read, picking up my beach pass this afternoon...
The list goes on & on!

One of my favourite songs is Every Good Thing, by the Afters
which declares God as the giver of every good thing.
"You're the reason for every good thing, every heart beat,
every day we get to breath.... anything that lasts, 
every second chance, life is so sweet..."

I'm so grateful to Him for my sweet, sweet life. :)

Here's the card I'm sharing today:


I used PTI's Centre Stage cover plate to make a stencil, which I used with 
some PTI ink that I spritzed with water on my craft mat and a wet paint brush.
The banners are PTI's Get a Handle on it, die cut from aqua mist card stock
and some Heidi Swapp patterned paper.
The feather die cuts and stamp are Wplus9, as is the sentiment.
 
I'm linking this up to this week's
 
So, what are you thankful for today?

Thanks for looking!
