God's Comfort for WAW

 This is such a precious scripture!  As designed, it makes a lovely full panel.  I framed it with Pink and Main papers and PaperTrey Ink's sweet eyelet die for a clean and simple look.

I hope you will visit Word Art Wednesday and join in on the challenge fun and will also partake of Karen's devotional based on the scrupture.

Psalm 31:24 with Flower Bouquet

  It's always a delight to visit Word Art Wednesday.  There's a new challenge every two weeks, a devotion to read, and a wonderful scripture to download for crafting!  Hope you will stop by to view the art that's shared and to play along for a prize from our awesome group of sponsors.

M card features the current word art for Pslm 31:24 and Flower Bouquet Die-Namics by our sponsor My Favorite Things.  This set usually stays on my desk---as opposed to returning to its neatly organized bin---because it's so versatile.

Put on Kindness

 This is a great scripture to meditate on at the beginning of each day!  How different things are when we have clothed ourselves  with mercy, kindness, humility, and patience all so graciously provided to us by the reconciliatory work on Jesus and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit!

I wanted my card to have a humble and gentle feeling, so I used the sweet eyelet frame by Papertrey Ink and some softly inked flowers from the bowl of spare parts on my desk.  The little blooms are from Spellbinders and My Favorite Things.

Please join us at Word Art Wednesday for the opportunity to enter a random prize drawing, to download the scripture and to see others' projects.

Blessed is the Man that Fears the Lord

 A couple weeks ago, I was waiting on new plates for my Big Shot and decided to go through my accumulation of scrap paper and cut everything down to 4 x5.25 inches.  Then I organized them in rainbow order.    It made it easy to find a paper that fit the fruitful vine theme of this verse and still kept things looking masculine.

The frame is a Papertrey Ink product and is one of my favorites for trimming down printed Word Art, so I use it a lot.  The accent cluster of leaves is from a Spellbinders set and the papers also came from my freshly organized collection of scraps.

Hope you will join us at Word Art Wednesday this week.

Stamp Simply sponsors WAW

 The Welcome Baby stamps and dies by Stamp Simply are just so sweet. The detailing on the die cuts is just wonderful!  I love using them to create cards for the Pregnancy Resource Center where I volunteer.  As each volunteer celebrates her birthday, I give her two cards she can send to expecting parents, so I didn't add sentiments to these.

Stamp Simply is once again sponsoring at Word Art Wednesday.  Please stop by the blog and share an entry ---or up to five projects---for a chance to earn a prize

Happy Birthday with Newton's Nook Floral Fringe

Isn't the color palette for the current Inky Paws Challenge refreshing and lovely!  I chose Floral Fringe and Tombow Watercolor Brush Dual Brush Pens for the focal panel of my card.  The card base was cut by strategically placing the scalloped rectangle from Flags and Frames over the fold of the panel.

Thanks a Bunch

 Why an Easter wreath on a thank you card several weeks after Easter?  Well, here's why.  I work with a small non-profit ministry that recently received a donation from a very creative group of young people.  They hosted an Easter Egg Hunt, charging an entry fee for each participant.  The funds were shared with our group.

This is one of the times that it's really fun to use card-making supplies in a different way to create a card perfect for the occasion!

Best Wishes to the Mr. and Mrs.

The Mandala and Stitched Flowers are favorites from My Favorite Things.  I love the color selections and softened them a bit for this wedding card.  The inside reads:  Best wishes to the Mr. and Mrs. 

MFT Color Challenge

You're Fintastic

It's fun to play along with a sketch challenge!  I love the creativity that comes from combining supplies and stamps that are on-hand along with an occasion and a sketch.  It makes for more creative cards, I think.  This one features the so-cute Baby Shark die-namics and the coordinating sentiment stamps.
