My Lips Will Shout for Joy

This beautiful Psalm (My Lips Will Shout for Joy) is the free word art file this week at Word Art Wednesday and we would all just LOVE to have you stop by and play along with us.  You are welcome to save the file to your computer, and you are welcome to use it on your entry, but never required to do so.  You just need to share scripture or an uplifting/encouraging sentiment.  I hope you will join us.


I made a square card using a Cheery Lynn Designs die-cut, a Martha Stewart doily that is inked with Tim Holtz inks, some shabby Prima flowers, laces, seam binding, a Maya Road stick pin, Freckled Fawn washi tape, buttons, jute, a Prima leave, Bo Bunny patterned paper, machine stitching and a Bo Bunny rub-on.  Whew. . . that's a lot of embellishing.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

    1. Yes, the big fluffy ones gets hand-delivered or placed with a gift. Thanks for asking. I have mailed some of them, but when I do, I use a bubble mailer.
      Thanks for the compliments.

  21. Love your card this week. I have one of the big scallop dies from SU & haven't been able to use it a lot-I like that you cut designer paper with it for one of the layers.

    Love all the extras-really makes a nice card.

    Have a blessed week.
