Masculine Autumn Card - Word Art Wednesday

Hello friends and happy Wednesday to you all!
It's time for Word Art Wednesday's Anything Goes challenge  (Family friendly, of course!).
I've chosen to go quick and easy on this card. I've used 3 dies and with my Big Shot this was easy peasy! I love this autumn paper from Carta Bella called Fall Break.  So many wonderful papers in this collection, it was hard to decide which one to use.  This is from the 6x6 paper pad.
 We have 2 sponsors for this weeks challenge and they are  Pretty Little Studio and Stix 2 Anything (an adhesive prize package!)  Hope you will play along for a chance to win!  Don't forget you can enter 5x per week and the challenge is for 2 weeks.  That's your opportunity to enter 10 new projects to share with us!
Here is my card for the challenge:

Dies used: Taylored Expressions (Birch tree plate and Birch Tree Accessories - deer); Simon Says Stamp! Stitched Circle.  
Card Stock: Dark green, dk brown and Desert Storm, card base is Neenah 80# bright white.
No stamping, the Scripture Art is our Word Art that is available for free at Word Art Wednesday.  

This week the verse is from Proverbs 9:10. Proverbs is a book which focuses on practical living and is founded on this important admonition: wisdom begins with having a right relationship with the Lord.  I like how the New King James version puts it: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  Having a relationship in the sense of having a reverent fear or awe of the Lord is the starting place. Finding wisdom truly begins with the fear of the Lord and in it comes knowledge, understanding and blessing. Some great verses to go along with this would be Proverbs chapter 1 and 2.  A wonderful thing about the book of Proverbs, there are 31 chapters so you could read a chapter each day of the month to go along with your other devotional reading you may do.  You can never get to much of God's Word hid away in your heart!

Have a wisdom-filled week!!
Thanks for visiting.

Let's Do Coffee! - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends and family!
I have a fun card to share today that features a Graciellie Designs digital stamp, (who just happens to be one of our sponsors at Word Art Wednesday for this weeks challenge).  Here is a link to her Etsy site. This set is called "Stay Cozy" and it has some really fun sentiments to go along with a cup and tea bag.

I've used the Photo Play "Fall Breeze" collection of 12x12 designer papers and the 6x6 paper pad from the same line.  Love this collection of paper! My card base is Neenah Desert Storm and I've added a strip of dark brown card stock (probably Bazzill); the ribbon is from Michael's fall line of ribbons.  I've colored the image with Copics (YR14, YR24, R89, R39, E09, E25, E49, V06 and a colorless blender.)  The Scripture Art is from Galatians 6:2 and printed on Neenah Bright White 80# cardstock.

"Bear ye one another's burdens and so fulfil the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2  This verse reminds us to be mindful of others, to care for others during times of need.  It really isn't complicated. I think it would be an excellent idea to read the complete chapter not just verse 2 if you really want to understand personal responsibility and being effective as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  If everyone would stop looking at "me, myself, & I" and begin to care for others, what a difference we would make in this "self focused" world! Everyone of us has a burden, a trial, something that weighs us down and if we would just help carry the load, the Bible says we would be fulfilling the law of Christ.  You may ask what is the law of Christ? Simply: it's love. Jesus said in John 13:34-35 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another; By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. Lord Jesus help each of us to reflect you and be mindful of those around us so that our obedience to Your word would draw others to You.

Well don't forget to link up with us your projects and get a chance to win a prize!  The challenge every week at Word Art Wednesday is Anything Goes - Family Friendly and runs for 2 weeks!  You can submit 5 new projects a week!  Two sponsors this week: Graciellie Designs and Honey Bee Stamps!!!!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!  Invite a friend for a cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa whatever it might be and take time to be a friend or just a listening ear to someone in need.
