Scripture Series: Charity-Grow a Little Love Card...Join Us for an Inspiring Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Hi ya'll!  Hope you are having such a blessed week.  We just came back from a family vacation and it's true what everyone else says:  "You need a vacation after a vacation!"...LOL  I never seem to catch up on all the work that needs to get done but I made time to make this Card to share to y'all for the Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.

Today's free word art features 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.  It's all about the sweet word "LOVE" or in other Bible translations "CHARITY."  You can get it free when you visit us at Word Art Wednesday.  We are offering a double prize for our Challenge winner with prizes from My Heart Pieces and My Craft Spot by Kimberly.  To join, simply create a card using this sentiment or any uplifting sentiment and link it to our Challenge and walah, get the chance to win some fabulous prizes.  

Here's is the Card I made for your inspiration.  I wanted to make the scripture message the focal point so, I reduced the clutter and kept  the card simple and elegant.  I used 2 Cuttlebug embossing folders, an MS doily border punch, layered Prima flowers, MS leaf punch, button brads, dew drops and a wonderful digi image from Tiddly Inks called "Grow a Little Love."  I paper pieced her dress and colored her with my ProMarker/Prismacolor Markers.  I also adhered some heart gems on to the pot of hearts she was carrying and added some dots with my Gelly Roll Pen.  I then, stitched all over this Card for a great finished look.  So, what do you think, folks?  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    A Gem of a Challenge featuring "For the Girls"
2.    Hiding in my Craftroom featuring "Freestyle"  
3.    Penny's Paper-Crafty featuring "Die-cuts and Punches" 
4.    Crafty Pad featuring "Floral"
5.    Robyn's Fetish featuring "Stitching" 
       ----Woohoo...I was one of the Top Picks!
6.    PanPastel UK featuring "Sentiment/Verse) 
7.    Cutie Pie featuring "Use a Digi" 
8.    Lady Anne's featuring "Anything Goes" 
9.    Challenges 4 Everybody featuring "Anything Goes"

12.  Deep Ocean featuring "More than 2 Colors" 
13.  Gingerloft featuring "Stitching" 
14.  Totally Stampalicious featuring "Anything Goes"
15.  Paper Craft Star featuring "Anything Goes" 
16.  Papertake Weekly featuring "Anything Goes" 
17.  Crafts and Me featuring "My Sentiments Exactly!" 
18.  My Mum's Craft  Shop featuring "Love is all Around" 





As I meditate on these verses, it gave me a glimpse on Who God really is.  His mercy, grace, compassion and faithfulness. He is the Truth that bears the Standard---a Standard in Whom all creation are supposed to abide by.  It provides me an understanding why God, the Father, sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from being eternally separated from Him. In as much as He is a "Just God", He was moved by His great love for us.  The Bible says in Romans 6:23:  "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." If you want to get to know Jesus and what He has done for you, let me know and I will be delighted to share His tremendous love to anyone who wishes to listen.  God bless and have an awesome day!
