Challenge #101 - Anything Goes

Welcome back!  We're so blessed by EVERY person who stops by, and we hope you all enjoy playing along with us.  We invite you all to check out our Facebook Page and join us there for a chance to win a sweet die-cut.  We're SO excited to see all the ways God is blessing us each week, and we PRAISE HIM for each of you.  We are grateful for the art you share.  We believe that we are all "created to be creative", and we enjoy seeing what He inspires each of you to create.  We also believe that we are all "blessed to be a blessing", (meaning that as we are all blessed by God, it's our privilege and responsibility to use our blessings to bless others.  We hope that you will always remember, when playing along at Word Art Wednesday, that we never want our art to offend anyone (most especially not offending to God/God's Word).  Please always be mindful and respectful of our Challenge Guidelines when linking art.  We enjoy your family-friendly and uplifting projects that bring glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We've had to delete a few entries lately that don't adhere to our specific Challenge Guidelines.  We completely understand that some of you are creating Halloween cards, and that's fine for other challenge blogs; but those cards are not appropriate for our challenges.  We just HATE to have to delete any entries, and would hate even more to have to forego a prize if picks a winner with a project that doesn't meet the Challenge Guidelines; so please be sure to read them again.  We want all your entries to count!  You all work so hard on your projects, and do such a lovely job.  You're all SO incredibly talented.

As always, you are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning.  It is our desire 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".  They have been revised, and we ask that you check them out if you aren't familiar with our challenge guidelines.  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines.  Please keep this in mind with Halloween approaching.  While we know that your Halloween cards are all in good fun, they are not appropriate for our challenges, and we don't want to have to delete any entries.  Thanks for understanding!

Thanks for the great challenges and the wonderful DT samples! Question for you: I just went to look at the Top 3 and the numbers are not the right names. Where can I find them?

You might wonder about using Jack- O- Lanterns for such a card, but the poem I wrote will answer the question as it has a meaning to it. Edwina Brown
