Happy Word Art Wednesday, Bi-Weekly Challenge and Freebies # 497-498

  Happy Word Art Wednesday everyone! Karen Letchworth has given us a beautiful devotion!  We also have another gorgeous  Bible verse digitized by Karen Murray!    Our Sponsor this week is    My Scrap Cabin (On Etsy) Seam Binding Bundles. I love using seam binding on my cards - it ties beautifully and makes a nice flat knot - very mailable. My Cabin has wonderful colors and extra goodies!    Stop over to the blog, check out the design team's sample, and join in the fun

I made two cards for this week's verse from Psalm 133:1.  



Here are my cards: 



I just could not decide which colorway I liked better


I have lots of friends in ministry so these cards won't stay on my desk!

Today is a hallmark day for me, for the first time in a year, I feel like I have caught up with life, deadlines, and task maintenance.  I am now looking forward to pushing ahead with some of the plans I had in the works before The Covid Isolation period.  I never isolated, as a caregiver for seniors and church ministry became busier than ever, I also took on a new Job as a Paralegal which has been a bit of a whirlwind!
I've taken my favorite stamps out of storage, purchased a few new ones and I am looking forward to using them for WAW and for my regular card ministry!

My Freebies for you!







I hope you are getting out again and life becoming more normal (whatever that is these days!)
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you join in the Fun at Word Art Wednesday!

A Special Free Set of Digitals for Your Card Making Ministry

Last night while working through some ideas of how to keep our church's card ministry up to date and have it be a real blessing, I thought to develop a set of cards that I can store digitally for fast makes.  I wanted to share these with anyone that has a need whether personal or for church ministry.

The first thing I wanted to make, was a nice digital background stamp that could be an all-occasion stamp.  What better for this than Psalm 23 and 24:

1{A Psalm of David.} The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever

1 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah

I felt that these words would inspire and bless.*  I have used the Font called "Blessing".



*I've made these so that you can right-click and save for your card-making!


Here is the first card I made with The Background


I used a Simply Stamps set and alcohol ink to color and created the "Praise" sentiment on my Cricut.

I've had so many ideas to use this background! 

I hope you will find this background stamp useful, I really enjoyed the process of making it and then creating cards with it.
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

  Happy Word Art Wednesday everyone! Karen Letchworth has given us a beautiful devotion!  We also have another gorgeous  Bible verse digitized by Karen Murray!    Our Sponsor this week is   Pretty Posh Pink, offering a lovely $30.00 gift certificate - that is at least a new set of stamps!!    Stop over to the blog, check out the design team's samples, and join in the fun! 


This week we have a beautiful verse from the book of Deuteronomy.  In this verse, The Lord encourages us to keep a loving relationship with him. It is such a great promise.


My Card:


I thought this pretty bridal image from Gecko Galz worked with the map background. We never know where life will take us, it is so wonderful to know that The Lord is with us where ever we go! Our lives may change from a moment to a moment basis - but He never Does.  His promises are sure and stand forever!


The verse:
