These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I made this card as my Design Team project this week at Word Art Wednesday, but wanted to first and foremost, give credit to the talented Ingrid Danvers who inspired me greatly.  She made a similar card quite some time ago, and I had tucked it in my October Afternoon file.  For some reason, I thought it went well with this week's scripture and decided to use it.  I enjoy the combination of patterned papers in this sweet October Afternoon line, and just adore all their embellishments.  I used the free word art file from Word Art Wednesday this week, and printed it on an October Afternoon sticker.  Thank you, Ingrid, for your inspiration.  I hope you will all stop by and play along in our challenge this week.

I'm entering thid following challenges:

http://www.twistoffaithcards.blogspot.com/2012/10/7-your-favourite.html - Twist of Faith Cards - Challenge #7 - Your Favorite (My favorite of all cards to make are scripture cards, and second in line would be using October Afternoon  So, when I get to do both, is a double favorite).

http://www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/2012/10/week-136-rustic-elegance.html - The Shabby Tearoom - Challenge #136- Rustic Elegance - My rustic elements are the vintage button and jute, and the elegant touches are the roses.

http://www.craftysentiments.blogspot.com/2012/10/bows-or-ribbons.html - Crafty Sentiments - Bows and Ribbons - Are you kidding?   I don't think I know how to make a card without a bow or ribbon.

DID YOU KNOW that the current challenge over at Word Art Wednesday has TWO great prizes this week including a GORGEOUS necklace from the Etsy shop of one of our participants?  Check it out - you won't be disappointed.  Everyone is welcome to play along, and may enter up to frive (5) times per week.

Before I go, I wanted to mention that there was apparently a little "funny business" going on with the voting I asked you to do for me. I did win the contest (because God honors our honesty, and I played fair), and I'm SO grateful to all those who voted for me.  Now it's someone else's turn to need some help.  My bloggy friend Tracey Sabella (this month's Guest Designer at Word Art Wednesday needs our help gathering votes for a contest she's entered at May Arts.  If you can go to May Arts site here and vote for Tracey Sabella (at the bottom of the page/leave comment), it would be greatly appreciated.  http://www.mayarts.com/blog/ink-it-craft-challenge-entries-and-a-giveaway/ - She is a great gal, and would really appreciate your votes (if you feel she deserves it- I think she did an AWESOME job).  It also also enters you to win an amazing prize. You're all the best.  Thanks for stopping by, and please know I'm always willing to help YOU, too - just let me know.

I've rambled excessively, so I will let you all get back to your lives now.  Thank you for being such tremendous blessings in my life.

My Cup Runneth Over,
Karen
