Challenge #201 - Anything Goes

What a WONDERFULLY exciting time we had with last week's BIG celebration for our 200th Challenge here at Word Art Wednesday.  We had an amazing 300+ entries in our big celebration challenge, and it was SO much fun seeing all the amazing creations you all made to share with us.  WOW, you're such a bunch of talented artists; and we feel SO blessed to have you share your amazing talents with us.  We enjoyed, and are grateful for, each and every entry we received.  If we didn't make it by your blog, it's not because we didn't try.  We were all hopping around like crazy trying to comment on them all.  If you did happen to get missed, please don't take it personally.  I always look at every single thumbnail, and SO appreciate each and every piece of art that gets linked to our challenges.  Thank you all so very much.  We sure were blessed by all of you.  We couldn't have this challenge blog if it weren't for people like YOU who share their talents with us each and every week.  But even more, we couldn't do this without the leading of the Lord Jesus Christ; and we PRAISE HIM for all that He has provided for us here at Word Art Wednesday over our last 200 challenges, and we are looking forward to all the ways in which He will continue to pour His blessings out over us during the next 100 challenges (or wherever the Lord leads this ministry).  It means so much to have YOU on this wonderful journey with us as we discover all that God has in store for us.  He just continues to bless us at every turn.  Just wait until you see all the amazing fun we have scheduled for 2016.  There's so much going on at Word Art Wednesday, and we're really just trying to shine like bright and encouraging lights in a dark world, and to continually be an encouragement to all artists.  Thank you for joining us.

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 altered or digital 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 our guidelines.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!
