Word Art Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Oh happy day, and blessings to all of my crafty friends and visitors.  I am so blessed and grateful that you have stopped by my blog to say hello and take a peek at my scripture card for this week's Word Art Wednesday weekly challenge.  You are more than welcome to stop by the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog and pick up the free word art.  There is a new digital scripture image every week, and you are welcome to save and use them all.  However, you are never required to use them in order to play along in our weekly Anything Goes challenges.  As long as your projects are family-friendly (meeting our Challenge Rules), you can share anything you like for up to five entries.  The more you share, the more you can improve your chances of winning some of our fabulous prizes.  And again this week, we have AMAZING sponsors.  Loves Rubber Stamps is giving away a gift certificate towards your choice of any of their lovely rubber stamps, and the adorable Milk Coffee Stamps is offering free digital images from their delightful shop.  In addition, I am giving away a pile of luscious wool felt from Shoppe 3130.  All you have to do to be entered to win the wool felt is enter our challenge this week, AND become (or be) a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment here letting me know what you like to do with wool felt.  I love knowing WHO likes different items, and WHAT they use them for.  I know this pile of Jennifer Elliot's lovely wool felt will be a big blessing to someone.
It's SUCH a blessing for me when you all stop by and share your wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday.  I can't adequately express what it means to me that people like you take time out of their busy schedules to stop by and link up the beautiful art they create, and share it in our challenges.  YOU are what makes our challenge blog a success.  I appreciate you all so much for sharing your art with us, and I wish you the very best of luck in the random draws for prizes this (and every) week.  I want everyone to be a winner at our blog (eventually) because I'm SO incredibly grateful for each entry.  I often just randomly choose participants to send a little prize, too.  So by playing along, you never know when you will get a special blessing in the mail.  It's my way of saying THANK YOU for all that you do for me when you share your art in our weekly challenges.

My card was made using a VERY old line.  It's by Making Memories, and the line is called Sabrina.  It was sold at Michael's and other craft stores about, oh....ten or eleven years ago.  I have so many old lines in my bins, and when I finally take out something old and create with it, I'm blessed all over again by something I had neglected and almost forgotten.  I am very blessed, indeed!  I paired the Sabrina patterned papers and pink printed transparency (on which the scripture is printed) with some vintage sheet music which is stamped with a Verve banner stamp and cut out.  I added some of the Making Memories Sabrina gems to the tag.  The top just has a few lengths of pink and black baker's twine, and of course.....I machine stitched my edges.

May God bless you and keep you, and I ask that you PLEASE stop by Word Art Wednesday to play along with us in the hopes of winning one of our THREE awesome prizes this week.  It's always more special when YOU are able to play along.



  1. I love wool felt to play and create little things with my grand children.
    With the help of a cutting machine and the great dies of Marianne Design, Joy Crafts and other Companies it's very easy .
    The girls use them to create scenes in their diaries...
    Instead of writing the word they used a die cut...very comic !

  2. I remember that line and your card is beautiful. Love your stitchwork!

  3. I would love a pile of wool felt Karen - what a wonderful prize to gain -I would be die cutting with that wool felt - die cutting up storm! thanks for your lovely card display as well - love pink and black together! and thank you for the challenges at WAW - have a blessed day my friend

  4. This is such a gorgeous card Karen!! LOVE the great colors!!!! The details and embellishing and your amazing stitching makes this one awesome card!
    Love working with wool felt and my dies! Love the added texture it gives to my projects!
    Thanks for sharing and have a GREAT day!!

  5. Karen,
    This BEAUTIFUL card reminded me of the good times from my childhood. Music, wooden spools ( our main toys) and the bakers twine. The pairing of striped and paisley is truly beautiful and pale enough that the words on the vellum show up.
    Personally when I hear wool felt I think of mending/patching the elbows on my Granddads woolen outdoor work jacket. I have not ever used it for cards BUT I have been tempted a few times having seen some of your wonderful uses of it. Blessings, Carole

  6. Flowers usually. I've been looking for a lamb die though. It would be perfect to make felt sheep for several verses. My scripture cards are donated to a mission group for their annual fundraiser craft fair. They provide medical care, support an orphanage and four teams from our church in Central America. Sorry, got off the subject but it's an amazing group.

  7. This is a really lovely card! Printing the scripture on the transparency is such a great idea and love the pretty colours and the lovely twine bows.

  8. Love the pink and black colour scheme - so dramatic.

  9. Beautiful Karen! Love the colors and all the details you put in to this.

    Gosh, not sure what I would do with wool felt - but I could probably come up with a lot to use it for :-)


Thanks for your comments. They mean so much to me.
