Happy New Year and Word Art Wednesday and a freebie!

Happy New Year from Snowy New York!  It is Word Art Wednesday's anything goes challenge #264-265! Karen Letchworth has written and inspiring devotion and For the next two weeks, we will have a linky site set up for you to show off your art, and maybe win a prize!  Check out the blog for a list of our exciting sponsors for 2017!  I highly encourage you to join in!  Be a blessing: make a card, post it and send it!!

Here is this weeks' beautiful Scripture done by Karen Murray:




This week I had the fun experience of running out of printer Ink!  Oops, and it is a holiday weekend and I'm not paying full price for a replacement.   A little frustrating BUT, it worked out because I could still print in a deep red shade, and I felt that was appropriate for this card - for we are redeemed by the Blood!

When I create a card for a verse I try t make the image fit the verse.  So what kind of am image do I use to fit this verse- it was a challenge!  I decided to create a literal word picture, and I am giving this to you as a freebie gift for you to use too:


My card worked up like this:


First print
you can do this in B+W or you can change the color to one you prefer, or you can run out of ink and end up with who knows what color!



Outline the letter blocks


Layer and mount on card base

and here is the finished card!

I hope you hop over to Word Art Wednesday and check out the great things that will be happening this new year, things to help you let your light shine!
Thanks for stopping by!
