Challenge #134 - Anything Goes

Hello, blog friends!  We have another really special week planned here for our challenge.   We are blessed to have THREE amazing sponsors with us supporting us this week.  That's great news for you because you have THREE chances to win.  We have Frantic Stamper offering one of their adorable "cheese card" original dies, we have Cheery Lynn Designs offering one of their harvest dies, and we also have the ADORABLE Daydream Designs offering our digital prize this week.  Each of these companies is AMAZING.  While Frantic Stamper and Cheery Lynn Designs both carry die-cuts, they are still VERY unique and different in what they offer.  That's one of the truly beautiful things about each store.  Their products are original, and you're sure to find the store with the dies and other supplies that are absolutely PERFECT for YOUR crafting needs.  Our digital sponsor is one that we here at Word Art Wednesday really love.  Daydream Designs is filled with the loveliest digital sets that will jazz up your projects and make card-making a breeze.  Please take time to visit each of our sponsors' stores using the links provided.  They're each truly AMAZING!

This week's scripture is Nehemiah 9:6 and it talks about how God, and God alone, has made the heavens and all that exists.  There is SO MUCH God has created that we can enjoy.  But just seeing it all with our eyes isn't enough.  Once we truly comprehend the the AMAZING abilities the Lord, Jesus Christ - our God possesses and has used to create with His mighty hands, the more blessed we will become.  All that the heavens and earth contain for us were spoken into existence by Him.  Next time you look at a beautiful sunset, a majestic mountain range, the waves of the ocean, etc., take time to remember that God created these things for us to enjoy simply because He loves us SO VERY MUCH.  He wants us to enjoy it, but He also wants us to understand that He is holy, and that all glory and honor belongs to Him for being the mighty Creator He is.  And with all that this world has for us to is NOTHING to what He has waiting for us in Heaven.  We are SO very blessed!

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. This includes any type of art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to five (5) projects 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".  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.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!
