Waiting for Summer - Word Art Wednesday 234 & 235

Hello Delightful friends and family!
So much going on! Little League baseball and girls softball are winding down for the grandkids so that's going to really help loosen up some time and enable me to get into my neglected (of late) craft room. I have to get my card class proposals in by the 10th (in 3 days! YIKES)  thankfully I have a good idea in what I'm doing, just got to get it down on paper and make some samples for the class board.
It's time for the new Anything Goes (family friendly) Challenge.  We have TWO wonderful sponsor this week and I've used one of  "All Dressed Up"images on my card.  Wendy Burns has the sweetest Etsy store and just love the digital images she's created, they are so cute!  Here is the link to her blog.  Hope you will take time to visit there.  Thanks so much Wendy!
Our second sponsor is the awesome online store PAPER SMOOCHES, they have some of  the cutest stamps and dies, I use them a lot in my classes.
Here is my card I shared at Word Art Wednesday:

I wanted to make the image look like she was looking in/ or/ out a window so I framed her by die cutting the Stitched Circle die from Simon Says Stamp! I used two of the dies to cut out the pattern paper. I used a piece of scrap paper from my stash and it matched perfectly with the background designer paper from Fancy Pants called Park Bench, I've been hording saving this paper for quite some time! I've colored this little darling with Copic Markers and then used the Atyou Spica glitter pens to color the teeny tiny flowers, greenery, butterflies and bees.  I love the braid in her hair and the green garland!  This image is called Waiting for Summer, isn't she the sweetest?  I've added three enamel dots to embellish so this card was easy to assemble.  This weeks Scripture comes from Proverbs 16:9 and I've cut it down and matted it with yellow card stock.

Here is a card I made for a class last week using a Paper Smooches image called Chubby Chums:

I water colored the image after stamping onto the Ranger Water color paper and I used Distress Markers, ink pads and waterbrush to color.  The graduation cap is a stamp and die from Stampers Anonymous called "Crazy Things", the border die is called Stitched Scallops from Lawn Fawn.  This is one of the three cards we did in class last week.  Just wanted to give a shout out and thanks to Paper Smooches for sponsoring us at Word Art Wednesday!

Here is the free Scripture Art that you can grab and use if you'd like when you play along with the challenge at Word Art Wednesday, you don't have to use it to play along but we love seeing it when you do!

A great verse to remind us to pray for  the Lord's direction in our lives.

Thanks for visiting and have a fantastic week!
