Word Art Wednesday Challenge

I recently discovered a website that gives you a challenge every week with a corresponding verse to use in a creation.  It doesn’t have to be a card, but that’s what I chose to do this week.  We read Proverbs 31 today in our OwnIt365 plan, so this week’s verse seemed most appropriate for me.
I would love to hear how you like to incorporate Scripture in your crafting.  What have you found that pumps those creative juices, like this website did for me?

Thank You!

My daughter’s roommate was headed to Walmart this week to buy a thank you card.  Of course Christina told her not to go because she knew her mom would gladly provide a card for her…and she was right. I was happy to head to my craft room and play with some new toys!
The card turned out just as girly and blingy as I hoped it would.  It needed to be a money holder so I made it with a pocket inside to hold the cash…
The card was being given to a friend who had helped her secure a dress for a recent event. This was the perfect occasion to play with the dress framelits and bitty banner framelits.  I will be using this die again to create some wonderful Mother’s Day cards.  Join us at the April card class to create yours!
Please be watching for information regarding my updated mailing list.  Sign ups will begin very soon and you don’t want to miss out on the free gift you get for signing up.  Even if you have been on my list before, you will need to sign up again to receive the free gift and to continue to get email updates.  I will send out information as soon as that is set up and ready to go.

Hip Hip Hooray!!!!

What a great game last night between the Louisville Cardinals and Michigan.  I said at the beginning of the year that the Broncos were going to win the Super Bowl, then Louisville was going to win the NCAA and then Jesus was going to come back!  Much to my disappointment, the Broncos were out of the playoffs pretty quick.  But the Cards came through for me last night and there was much rejoicing! (Not like when Jesus does actually return, but like when YOUR team wins the BIG game.)  I was too excited to sleep so I decided to craft instead.  Here’s the celebration card I made…

It really isn’t hard to make that cute little cardinal with the Bird Builder Punch (117191).  You just punch an extra wing to make the feathers for the top of his head.

Tonight the Lady Cards play for the women’s NCAA basketball title.  If they win I am going to craft again…maybe using some pink…we’ll see.

My husband thinks I need to send this card to Rick Pitino…and I just might do that.
