Time For Some Fun!

For those of you who work a full-time job outside the home, you might refer to Wednesday as "hump day".  You know, that day right smack dab in the middle of your week that's like a hump you have to get over to start making your way to Friday?  Well, at Word Art Wednesday we consider Wednesday a great time for some fun!  Today starts a brand new challenge, and this time we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and someone will win a $25 gift certificate to their store to spend however they choose!  I hope that YOU will stop by and play along with us.  You can't win if you don't enter.
I made my card by printing this week's free word art/scripture file onto a piece of Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes patterned paper and piecing it together with another piece of patterned paper (from the same collection).  I ran a width of hot pink seam binding across my card, and tied a bow with that, medium pink seam binding and teal baker's twine.  I placed a small teal button in the center of the bow that's tied with solid pink baker's twine.  I added a half of a white doily and a small ephemera tag to my card to give it bit more layering and personality.  I also inked the edges of my card with Lucky Clover and Pink Lipstick Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I really hope to see each of you entering our challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  It makes me SO happy to see all the beautiful entries for each challenge.  And as I mentioned, YOU could be the lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp.  Having them as our primary sponsor was a long-time dream of mine for many years, and I am so happy to announce that 2017 will be our second year having Simon Says Stamp as the primary sponsor of our challenges.  This little challenge blog (Word Art Wednesday)  has come a long way since I first started, and I praise God for each blessing along the way.  He is just SO very good to us.  My cup runneth over!


I'm linking my scripture card in these SUPER FUN challenges.  I try to enter every time Darnell runs this fun NBUS challenge, and I sure appreciate her endeavors for us all in the crafting community.
NBUS Challenge #7 - Darnell's FUN challenge is open to everyone!  Come, play along.  And thanks, Darnell!
