Challenge #35 - Blessings From God - DOUBLE PRIZE WEEK

It's DOUBLE PRIZE WEEK again here at Word Art Wednesday.  Let the fun begin!

We are so grateful to God for all the blessings He provides.   He is so faithful in blessing and providing in our personal lives, as well as providing for our needs and desires here at Word Art Wednesday.  Each week, we clearly see His hand of blessing through the participants of our challenges, and in the beautiful art you all share.  We just continue to praise Him for all these blessings.  We SO enjoy visiting your blogs and receiving your sweet comments.   There is one common bond that we all obviously share; and that is the amazing love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.   He has given each of us special gifts, and we are so grateful when you share your God-given talents with us through your art.

We are also thankful for the faithful and talented Design Team Members God has provided us here at Word Art Wednesday.  This week, we are excited to tell you a little more about Karen Conner.  Karen has been on our Design Team from the beginning, and she is one of those people who is always coming up with ways to be a blessing to others.  She offers helpful suggestions, and encourages all of us to lift up others.  We are so blessed to have her with us.  Here is a little more about her.
Karen is a Southern girl who was born and raised in South Carolina and Virginia. She has allowed God to be the major influence in her life, and her overall goal is to use the talents He has blessed her with to be a blessing to others.  Karen is a cancer survivor who strives to make the most of every day to bring glory to God.  She would love to someday teach her craft to others, and she hopes that faithfully maintaining her blog will enable her to share her love for God & art.  Karen enjoys using ink and paint to design her cards and layouts.  She also loves embellishments of all kinds: ribbon, buttons, charms, lace, etc.  She enjoys making cards, as well as mini albums and layouts to house the many memories of her family and friends.   She considers her style "shabby chic", and loves giving her art a vintage and distressed look.   She also uses acrylic paints occasioanlly when the urge hits.  She is adventerous in her art, and hopes her creations are a blessing to others.  She would love to have you visit her blog KRC Masterpiece and introduce yourself so that she can stop by and get inspiration from all of you.

This week is a DOUBLE PRIZE WEEK!  That means TWO sponsors and TWO WINNERS.

As always, feel free to save our free weekly word art to your computer. You are welcome to use it in your entry, but not required to do so. As long as you use an encouraging or uplifting sentiment on your project, that is fine. You can also link more than one project each week. The more, the merrier. We just hope that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".
