Keepin' it Simple - Word Art Wednesday (Challenge #292 & 293)

Hello Delightful Friends and Family,

Sharing a card  for Word Art Wednesday (Challenge #292 & #293) that is super simple, no stamping, only pattern paper, a Lawn Fawn Die, a dimensional sticker and  Scripture art digi. I'm so happy this came together so quickly I've not managed my time well as of late (Hmmm is it because it's summer?? Good excuse as any I suppose!) So I'm running a bit behind getting this blog post completed. So let's get to the basic details.  The challenge is Anything Goes - family friendly,  our fabulous sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp! You can link up to 5 new projects (many of you do and you are awesome!) There is always a lovely devotional to read that corresponds with the Scripture Art so be sure and check it out. The challenge runs for two weeks, which gives you more time to play with us!!

Here is my card: (see I told you it was simple)

Pattern Paper: Penny Black (Beau Jardin); Lawn Fawn Die (Stitched Simple Hillsides);Flower embellishment is from Crate Paper called Pretty Party.

Here is the free digital art you can use if you'd like to:

I am so grateful for the forgiveness of my sins and that God has removed them far from me. God who is all knowing and ever present chooses not to remember our sins.  If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us of all of our sins. He has done this because of the atonement at the cross. Jesus gave His life for us so that we could live and be reconciled to the Father. A simple but awe-inspiring truth.  Oh the steadfast love and mercy and abundant grace of our Lord is so humbling.  I love Him so! 

Have a blessed week and thanks for visiting.

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Hello Delightful friends and family!
A belated Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone had a safe and fun day. We are just getting back from a quick trip to Oregon for my nephews wedding reception and we stayed a couple extra days for some R&R and a jet boat trip to Hellsgate on the Rogue River from Grants Pass.  It was a blast.😁

I have to start out my blog by apologizing that I have the wrong Scripture Art on my card for this weeks challenge.  I didn't realize I hadn't printed out the July word art and when I searched for it in my email the 2016 July art came up because I hadn't received the 2017 word art, so I used it without realizing the error. But I do have a card, that's the good news and the scripture is a good one to use anyway! So really there is no loss here in my opinion 😊 and I'm excited because I was able to use my new Koi watercolors on the flowers on this card.
So without further ado here is my card for Word Art Wednesday Challenge 290 & 291:

My background was made with Distress Inks Fired Brick and Peeled Paint and a mini mister and a wet-on-wet technique on 140lb cold press Strathmore watercolor paper. I did some very loose watercoloring of the flowers and leaves from this stamp set called Doodlebuds from WPlus9. They are one of my all time favorite stamps sets! After loosely coloring them, I let them dry naturally then fussy cut them out and arranged them and adhered them after I positioned the Scripture that had been diecut using the Cottage Cutz Cross stitched square die.

Here below is the Scripture art that should have been used today and you are more than welcome to use it and play along with us at Word Art Wednesday!! You can link up to 5 new projects and have a chance to win a prize from our sponsors this week!! This challenge is a family friendly Anything Goes challenge.

Hope you have a great week and are enjoying your summer!!
Thanks for visiting!
