Back with a Word Art Wednesday Card

Hi everyone! 
I've been MIA for quite some time now.   I've started working for a local photography company and between my new job, my daughter's school activities, church ministries, and just trying to maintain somewhat of a liveable home, the blog, of course, fell to the way-side.  
But, I'm so glad to be back to share the latest Word Art Wednesday design with you all. 
The verse for this week is such a reminder to me that God is never too busy for us and He will never allow His children to fall by the wayside. 

Here is my card:

I'm so glad and thankful that God willingly gave His only son that I and all those who place their complete trust in Him may have life.  Eternal Life!

I chose bright, happy colors for this card, because that's what the gospel makes me feel.... happy!

I used an old Websters Pages paper line for this card called Botanical Christmas.  I also used lots of random embellishments from my stash...:) 

I invite to come play along with us at Word Art Wednesday.  We love to see your creations. Also, remember that Word Art Wednesday is on Instagram.  Tag your creations #wawchallenge and you just might be featured!

Thankfulness and a New Word Art Wednesday Card

Hi everyone, 
I'm back to share my newest Word Art Wednesday card design.  I'm a little late in getting this out due to a having had a massive migraine the last couple of days.  But with that being said, I'm so thankful to be back and to have the blessing of creating in my craftroom using Karen's beautifully designed word art. 
Here is my card:

If there is any reason to be thankful it's for what this verse reminds us of.   Our Lord is a great God and a great king above all gods!

I used paper from My Minds Eye and embellishments from Echo Park, The Paper Studio, and Jolee's.

this is my latest card for the design team:

Isn't this just such an encouraging verse?!   I'm so glad that my God knows all, that there is none like Him.  None can know His thoughts.  That's why I made a card using a sky/cloud theme.   This verse just reminds me that God is above all, so the theme just sort of worked with what I was thinking about God.

The paper that I chose for my card is DCWV Sunday Afternoon stack.  I fussy cut the clouds from the same paper that I used as my base.  I then layered them using foam dimensional tape.   lastly, I added a hot air balloon sticker from Echo Park, some enamel dots from MME, some twine at the top and Nuvo crystal drops in Robins Egg Blue around the edge of the verse.

My Latest Word Art Wednesday Card and Some Big News!

Well, Hello there!
I hope my post today finds you all doing well, thriving right where God has you, and at peace with whatever He has ordained for your life at this time.  I say that as I pray those very words for myself.  I desperately want to keep a quiet heart that is reliant upon Him to carry me through whatever He has planned for me.  I admittedly don't do a very good job of that and must keep going back to the "throne of Grace" crying out for more of Him. I'm so prone to wander and it's so easy to listen to the voices of worldly wisdom rather than to what my God has clearly said in His word.  That brings me to this week's Word Art Wednesday Card.

I do apologize for the very bad photo.  It's been dark and rainy here, so I ended up taking my picture using a desk lamp.  But at least the verse is clear and that's what it's all about! 
This week's verse is such a reminder to me to be careful about where I'm looking for wisdom/direction in life.   True wisdom is found only in God, and He promises to give it to those who ask. (see James 1:5)  
It's also a reminder to me to ask for that wisdom "early" .   Why is it that we tend to go to God last?  I'm so guilty of doing this.  I'll ask my husband, friends, or family before seeking God.  It should be God first, or as this verse would say it "early".   I'm so glad to have made this a card this week using the Word Art Wednesday verse, I really needed this reminder.

Haha, you can totally see the light from my desk lamp in the corner of this picture.  I thought it looked kinda cool though. 
For this week's card I used paper from My Minds Eye and Simple Stories.  I fussy cut some flowers from the MME paper and added some black Martha Stewart micro beads to the centers. 
Lastly, I added some Doodle Bug Designs sequins.
