Praising in Pink

This week at Word Art Wednesday, we are celebrating love.  The free word art/scripture is from 1 Corinthian Chapter 13 which speaks of "charity", which is the perfect "agape" love of God.  We would really LOVE to have you all join in our challenge.  You don't have to follow the theme of "love or charity", but it's more of a suggestion as to something we encourage you to thank God for this week.  His perfect "agape" love is the greatest gift we could ever have; as it offers us eternal life through believing in His precious Son, Jesus Christ.  We've been blessed to have Kimberly from My Craft Spot by Kimberly offer to be our primary sponsor for this week.  You will LOVE her darling shop filled with rubber stamps, baker's twine, scrunched seam binding and SO much more.  Please stop by and play along with us.  We'd love to see what you're creating this week.
 

Here are the challenges I'm entering:

  16. Karen, both of these are beyond fabulous. I love pink anyway, but you have created both cards with such beautiful balance in color and style. The WAW card is so elegant. And the cancer awareness card is so sweet. You are so talented, and your heart just comes through every creation. Love both!!!

  17. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, Karen. The first card is so lovely and the second is a hoot (couldn't help myself)and a lovely reminder.

  18. Oh my gosh Karen, your cards (I took a huge look through your blog) are SO delicate and beautiful in the most sophisticated and gentle way. I wish (in the positive sense of that word) I knew that craft! Thank you for your generous comment on my book...I would be more than happy to share how my book is bound with you, should you want to know. It is fun as heck but a tad time consuming. I can SO see a spiritually renewing gift with your charming and deliciously dedicated style on the covers and the inside pockets! There is a real purpose to this book I'd love to explain, that I did not put on the blog - should you want that too. Just let me know. Kisses, Samara

  19. Hi Karen,
    We "met" through Word Art Wednesday, and I am so glad that it dawned on me to click the link to your personal blog. it's been so much fun---and also inspiring---to page through your blog. I try to spend my computer time looking at things that are beneficial and would guide me toward honoring God. Your blog and Word Art Wednesday are a blessing! I enjoy seeing the art that is shared and appreciate the scripture downloads made available. I have the perfect scrapbook idea for this week's scripture on love...just have to take a photo at an upcoming church event. Thanks so much for your time and attention to the blogs and for honoring God. Christine

  24. Hi Karen! Thank you for the kind comments that you left on my blog (purplecardlady). I had to laugh out loud at your comment about Shemar Moore. He is a nice addition to my blog. ;-) Speaking of blogs I absolutely love your blog. I want to pull up a chair and have a cup of tea as I scroll through your beautiful creations. I really love the title of your blog because that is how I sign all my emails "my cup runneth over." Thank you for making me smile and leading me to your FAB tiny little slice of the blogosphere.

  36. Hi there, my dear friend and sister in Christ. I am overwhelmed by the wonderful comments you left in my blog and want to thank you for the encouragement to continue doing my best for the Lord. Tell your husband I said "Thank you" for the nice words. I know how guys want to show their tough side but there's some appreciation boiling in those tough exterior...LOL My hubby and boy are 2 of the greatest admirers of my craft...LOL Hubby always shares pictures of my cards when I upload them on Facebook. Anyway, I know that the Lord has a reason for our new found friendship. You are so much a blessing to me than you can ever imagine. I've never found a person that is as passionate as you in sharing God's love to everyone. Keep on shining the light of Christ in your life. I appreciate you so much. Hugs always!

    In Christ,
    JO ANN

  39. Karen, two very beautiful creations. I love all the goregous dimension on the first one and the sentiment of the second one is so appropriate for the subject matter and would be highly uplifting for the recipient.

    Thank you for joining in with our pink challenge at Lexi's Creations.
