Scripture Series: Sweetness of a Man's Friend Center Step Card---Be Inspired by Another Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Hi guys and gals...Here I am with another inspirational post for you as I feature a card for Word Art Wednesday (WAW).  These days I am surely missing lots of my friends back in the Philippines where I grew up for most of my life.  I find myself reminiscing the days back when I was in grade school.  I had some pretty good experience and part of that memory was having a best friend almost all the time.  I believe that those people were sent by God to help shape my character and attitude and they will never be forgotten.  I just hope that I would have a way of knowing where some of them may be at this time.  Before I came to know the Lord Jesus, I have quite a bit of friends that I hang out with.  We thought we would stay friends till we grow older but shortly after I began a relationship with the Lord Jesus, those friends started distancing themselves from me.  In my mind, I knew I was still the same person I was with them and the only thing that changed was that I have a new relationship with the Creator and as the day passed, I found myself not being invited to the usual get together times that I was the first one to know before.  It felt sad to be isolated by people that I was very close with, to not be part of their inner circle anymore.  I decided I would not let that get me down.  That's because my relationship with my Father in heaven has so much more to offer than any friend on earth will ever give.  And God didn't disappoint!  He brought to my life lots of friends who loves Jesus the same way I love Him.  These people helped me get through the difficult times in my life not just by sweet words but with advice from the "Living Word of God."  It contains life, hope, peace and comfort beyond understanding.  So, it is very important to surround ourselves with people that love the Lord and that we can be accountable with.  True friends are heaven sent and we must treasure them that comes our way.  Want to share this scripture with you today:

"Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety."
(Proverbs 11:14)

So, here's my card for today's WAW Challenge.  We have a couple of sponsors providing fabulous prizes to our winners and one of them is Robyn's Fetish who graciously provided us with cute images to use for our projects today.  I chose this cute "It's a Dragonfly Day" image that I colored with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Bic/Spectrum Noir markers and added some glitters ( Stickles-Diamond) on.  I decided to go for a Center Step Card measuring 5.5-inches using a White CS as base card.  I also gathered some Orange, Aqua Blue and Yellow CS for matting my panels.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss and die cut some shapes with Nestabilities (Scallop and Lacey Circle).  The butterflies were cut using an MS Punch and I added several brads.  The DP is from K & Company.  The sentiment is a free Word Art that you can download from the WAW Blog.  You can use it to make a project and link it to our ongoing Challenge or link other projects with uplifting message and family-friendly (upto 5 projects) for more chances to win. Lastly, I stitched all over this card for a polished look.  Hope you like it.
