Fun and Prizes at Word Art Wednesday

It's hard to believe that it's already Wednesday.  Where do the days go?  It seems as though you barely take a moment to breathe, and another week has passed.  I sure am thankful to have the time to be creative each week, and don't know what I'd do if I couldn't find time to be crafty.  I made two cards as I was preparing for this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  The first ard I made was the scripture card using this week's free scripture file.  The second card was very similar, but was created to fit into some challenges I wanted to enter.
And here is the second card.  They were both made with some patterned papers and embellishments that I picked up super cheap on a clearance sale at JoAnne's.
 
Here are the challenges I'm entering:

Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge Blog - The Stamp You Love But Don't Use.  We all have those, don't we?  Mine is this Happy Anniversary stamp.  I don't know why I don't use it more because I always end up needing anniversary cards.  For lots of great new stamps, check out Simon Says Stamp.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
 
Great Impressions Stamps Challenges - February Challenge - Have a Heart.  I included a small yellow heart right by the Eiffel Tower on my second card.  I would LOVE to work with Great Impressions' stamps!
 
The Craft's Meow Challenge Blog - February Sketch Challenge.  Both of these cards were created based on this month's darling inspirational sketch.

Twist of Faith Challenge Blog - Challenge #26 - Stitching/Real or Faux -I almost always machine stitch my cards, and these two cards are no exception.
 
I really hope that you will stop by this week to share your creations with us at Word Art Wednesday where our challenges are always Anything Goes, and this week we have ELEVEN (11) prizes up for grabs including a $15 gift certificate to The Kraft Outlet!!  We hope you will join us!
 
God's blessings to you all,
Karen

  5. Beautiful card, Karen!! I love the colors and papers!
    The verse suits that image for me... I have been up the Eiffel Tower and it was a little unnerving! (Queasy with a pregnancy may have helped that, too!)

  16. With all the comments you leave on my blog, I just wanted to stop by and let you know how adorable your card is. I just love the DP with that Eiffel Tower. I have a Eiffel Tower stamp and have been waiting to use it. I keep putting off brainstorming for that. Hope your doing well and picked up some Little Debbie's. Ha! (That was my size 3 "model" speaking. Ha!)

  21. Karen, it's a delight to see both of your cards. I'm attracted to your color combo with the Eiffel Tower and ribbon embellishments. The verse from Word Art Wednesday was especially meaningful to me this week. I'm so glad you're sharing it with others, too. Thank you for joining us at Twist of Faith. It sounds like our stitching challenge is a cinch for you!
