Word Art Wednesday - Proverbs 18:10

Hello Delightful Friends!
Happy belated 4th of July to our country!  Hope you all are having a fabulous week.  Today starts a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday hope you will join us!  Our sponsor for this challenge is Heart Felt Creations ($20) Hope you will check out their store and blog, they are already showing some gorgeous Christmas poinsettias!  Christmas in July!  

Here is my card for the Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge:


The ingredients to my card are from the Taylored Expressions Very Cherry Cardmaking Kit.
I've used the Open Scallop Circle Die to cut out the Scripture from Proverbs 18:10.  Our church sings the chorus that uses this Proverb.  I can't help but sing it!  Maybe you know it too.
The ink colors I've used are: Mushroom, Peapod, Cherry Pop and Mulled Wine.  I stamped extra cherries and popped them up for dimension.  I also popped up the circle die as well. The background hearts were stenciled and I used Cupcake ink.  (all the inks are from Taylored Expressions.

Hope you all have a great week, thanks for visiting and I also hope that you have called on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, He is our strong tower where we can run and truly be safe in His arms.
Blessings to you!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Psalm 133:1

Hello Delightful friends!

Hope you are enjoying the first official week of summer!  We've been having beautiful warm weather.

It's time for this weeks challenge at Word Art Wednesday, hope you head over and join us and share your creativity!  You may be the winner of this challenge's prize from My Scrap Cabin (On Etsy) Seam Binding Bundles.  You can enter new creations up to 5 times each week for a chance to win.  Don't forget this is Anything Goes - Family Friendly and it can be scrapbook pages, mixed media, watercoloring and of course card making!  

Here is my card for the challenge.

The pattern paper is Echo Park 6x6 Plant Lady collection. I've adhered the pattern paper to a piece of Desert Storm Neenah cardstock cut to 5.5 x 4.25 and then added to a white card base.
I've used the Deckled Rectangle die (Spellbinders) to die cut the Scripture Art.
The stamp set is from Ranger called Flower Pot (Wendy Vecchi Make Art Collection)
I've colored with copic markers and then fussy cut out the images and popped them up with dimensional adhesive squares. The pattern paper did all the work! 


This verse would be a good one to pay attention to. The blessings of unity come, not only in a church fellowship but in a nation, which if you ask me is totally lacking.  
The Scripture says: 
And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Matthew 24:12

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes - Family Friendly

Hello Delightful Friends,

Quick share of my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Challenge.  
So much is going on this week.  My grandson Jake is graduating 8th grade, my granddaughter Addy is turning 12, I'm also having a birthday but we will leave the age out of it 😊
This weekend all three of the granddaughters have their year end softball tournament.  Needless to say it's just a little busy around our house!

Our sponsor this week is Pretty Pink Posh! Oh my goodness they have some cute stamps, their Dad Stamp and Die set is so fun!!  Be sure and check it out.  I love their daily creative inspiration, I've have been following their blog for awhile and I'm always inspired by their Design Team.


Here is the Scripture Art for this weeks challenge if you want to use it. Too bad people don't have a healthy fear/respect for the Lord, we probably wouldn't be overwhelmed with such problems in our world, but when you take God out of the picture what's left is turmoil and no peace. Lord Jesus help us! God save us from the evil that has turned this world upside down.

I've kept this card very simple:  I've used the paper from Photoplay 6x6 pad called "Crafting with my Gnomies" (double sided) I'm not sure the name of the green card stock but it's from Taylored Expressions and the Stitched Heart Die is from Lawn Fawn, the Stitched Circle die is from Simon Says Stamp. I popped up two of the hearts with dimensional adhesive squares. Easy peasy!

Thanks for visiting and keep your eyes on Jesus! He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

I used two of the rectangle dies to make a frame after I had stenciled and stamped the design on a 4.25" x 5.5 piece of white card stock. I cut 3 pieces of white card stock and adhered them together and then used them to pop up the middle die cut stenciled & stamped piece, I also added the Foam Sticky Strips for more dimension.  The Scripture Art from Matthew 6:34 was also die cut from the Stitched Rectangle set.  I made sure I had matched up the flowers before adhering the pieces together.
