Eucharisteo!

Beths Card 004

“And he took bread, GAVE THANKS and broke it, and gave it to them…”  – Luke 22:19

“In the original language, “he gave thanks” reads “eucharisteo.”  Eucharisteo, thanksgiving, envelopes the Greek word for grace, charis.  But it also holds its derivative, the Greek word chara, meaning “joy.”

Charis.  Grace.  Eucharisteo. Thanksgiving.  Chara. Joy.

A triplet of stars, a constellation in the black.”

-Ann Voskamp (from her book, One Thousand Gifts)

Good Morning from Stamping Peace.  Eucharisteo! (pronounced U-Ka-Ris-stay-o)  A beautiful word,  a beautiful thought, a beautiful action.  What are you thankful for?  Today I am thankful for my friend and downline, Beth Mills, who made this card and sent it to me.  It was a total surprise and I am enjoying it immensely.  Thank you Beth!  Beth is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in DownEast Maine, over in the Pembroke/Dennysville area.  You’ll want to look her up if you’re over that way…she holds monthly stamping classes!  : )

For this card, Beth used the Truly Grateful and Tags 4 You Stamp Sets.  Paper is Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  The inks, I think, are Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry.  A gorgeous combo Beth.  I should have taken a picture of the inside of the card, because it is a work of art too!   Thanks again, what a delight to get “real” mail.  : )

Hope everyone is having fun preparing for the Thanksgiving feasting tomorrow,

Dawn

  1. Wow Dawn! You nailed the colors!! I “cased” the card from Brandy Cox at brandyscards.com. I did change up her colors a bit as the original “yellow” was So Saffron, but I didn’t think it popped enough. Thanks to you for your encouragement and support as I share my love of creating handmade/heartmade items! Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  2. Thank you. Beth,for sending me the thoughtful beautiful card. Thank you Dawn for figuring out how she did it and for being so supportive to your down lines!
