Scripture Series: Casting All Your Care Card--Join us for Another Word Art Wednesday Challenge...

Hi there, dearests!  How is everyone doing this morning?  My wonderful vacation is almost over and having to leave the place where we had lots of fun for the past week is hard but that is what we are all up against...TIME!  We all try to keep up with it yet we always seem to run out of it.  I am looking forward to that blessed assurance that one day, time will not matter.  When we live this earthly existence, we are catapulted to that everlasting existence and the choice we made here on earth will play a major role towards a life with the Almighty who has promised us all great things or the very opposite of that.  But for now, all good things come to an end yet this is also true when you are experiencing trials in life.  When you put your faith and trust in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, you know that He is with you through your ups and downs.  He never leaves you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  His friendship transcends time...It is eternal---forever!  When you have CHRIST in your heart, what is there to worry about?

So, here is a card I made featuring the free Word Art (1 Peter 5:7) that is available for anyone who wishes to have it.  Just go to Word Art Wednesday and download.  We will be delighted if you can make a project with it and join us in the Challenge but any project that has uplifting message can join.  We love to hear your stories on how this scripture played a role in your life when we visit your blog sites.  Anyway, I used a Mo Manning image in this card and colored her with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Bic markers.  I love how pretty she is and how she complimented the Word Art.  I used 3 different DP's from K & Company together with a turquoise and yellow CS.  I added a crochet flower (I made), satin ribbon, gems and brad for added dimension.  And lastly, I stitched all over this project for a classy, elegant, finished look.  I enjoyed every minute of making this and I hope you love it too.  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Paper Shelter featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    Simon Says Stamp featuring "Anything Goes" 
3.    Crafts and Me featuring  "Favorite Color" (My fave is turquoise and goldenrod)

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you found some inspiration from this project.  That's what I like about sharing God's word to everyone---it never returns void.  I pray that the Holy Spirit touches everyone's heart and give you comfort and peace in His Truth.  Know that no matter what, God is in control so, share this blessed hope to anyone you come across each day.  Share what Jesus has done to anyone who wishes to listen and let the Holy Spirit take care of the rest.  Have an awesome day!
