Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Happy Independence Day!

Hello Delightful Friends!

I'm posting this on the eve of our USA Independence Day.  Hope my fellow Americans have a blessed 4th of July. Most of the States are in the midst of a summer heat wave.  So perhaps my fellow crafters can get out of the sun and into their craft room to play along with us at Word Art Wednesday.  Our sponsor this week is the ever popular My Favorite Things!  Just upload your Anything Goes crafty project (family friendly) to the blog and be entered to win.  

Here is my card and I've used the Scripture Art from Psalm 31:24:

My Favorite Things stamp set called Fun Flowers (all used for the background)
I've colored with my PrismaColor Pencils and blended with mineral spirits
I went with the red, white and blue theme to go along with Independence Day
Paper: Doodlebug Designs - Hometown USA 6x6 double-sided card stock
Circle Die is the Stitched Nested Circles from La-La Land Crafts

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Fruitful transformation

Hello Delightful Friends,
Spring has quickly disappeared and summer is upon us in most of the states.  My corner of the world is still kind of cool in the morning and evenings and if the wind doesn't blow it's pretty comfortable, but boy if the wind is out the temperature stays in the low 60s. I always look forward to late July thru September when summer is really here on the north coast of California. 
On some crafty news, I'm getting ready this weekend to start tearing apart my craft room with the help of my oldest granddaughter Riley!  I've ordered some Stamp-n-Storage items (I'm so excited to start getting things organized, right now I can barely squeeze in there to my table.  I have too much furniture that isn't functional anymore and too much "stuff" if that's even possible 😂 I "might" be to embarrassed to do "before pics" but we'll see....

Well it's time for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge Anything GoesWord Art Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes - Family Friendly!  Our sponsor this challenge is  Doodlebugs. They are offering a $25 gift certificate to shop in their store! Hope you can play along, don't forget to upload your crafty project at the challenge blog and you can enter 5x each week the challenge runs.
The Scripture Art is from Colossians 3:12.  One of my favorite chapters with wonderful instruction on what to "put on" and what to "put off".  When you put on the attributes of Christ Jesus your life will be transformed and become fruitful for the glory of God.

Here is my card for the challenge:

Die: Postage Stamp Stacklet (Taylored Expressions)
I've used lots of ink colors:
Sour Gummy, Cookie Monster, Blue Raspberry, Granny Smith, Kiwi, Lime Zest, Sugar Cube
Items from 2 Kits from Taylored Expressions:  Butterfly Wishes (Stamp & Stencil set); Time to Fly (Combo Club) Card Stock: Sugar Cube; Foil it: Butterflies.

My messy table after putting together my card. 

Well that's it for me today.  Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!
God bless and please visit  Word Art Wednesday and share with us your crafty creation!

Word Art Wednesday - Stamp Simply!

Hello Delightful Friends!
Time for another Word Art Wednesday challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes, Family Friendly!
Hope you'll share your new creations with us and perhaps you'll win the prize from our sponsor this week, Stamp Simply! ($25)
  My card features the stamp and die bundle called Man of Knowledge .  This stamp set has some great sentiments and the dies are great to have on hand too.  I've colored the image with PrismaColor Pencils and then popped it up with dimensional adhesive.  The Happy Father's Day was stamped with Sepia (Versafine Vintage Sepia)  I was tempted to add some tiny titles on the spine of the books, wouldn't that be fun or maybe a favorite authors name.  I tried to color in a way that would give some of the books an antique feel to them. Not so sure that I was successful, need to practice 😉

Other ingredients:
Burlap twine 
Wonky Grid Background stamp (Taylored Expressions)
Toffee Ink and Toffee & Mocha Card Stock (TE)
Wavy Stitched Stacklets Die (TE)

Hope this finds you all well and enjoying our spring weather!  
Thanks for visiting and God bless!

What a wonderful gift, new life!
