Challenge Weeks #244-245 - Anything Goes

Hello, and welcome back to Word Art Wednesday for another FUN challenge.  Even though we've gone to a bi-weekly challenge schedule, this is one of those months where we have three challenges.  So for that reason, we have two sponsors again for this challenge; and then Simon Says Stamp will be back with us again for our third challenge in August.  We sure are glad you're here for this challenge because we have two AWESOME sponsors again which means two more chances for YOU to win.  I'd like to quickly mention that one of our DT Members, Carole Robb-Bisson, has been seriously ill.  For those of you who love to pray for others, I know that she would greatly appreciate your prayers for healing.  We miss her fellowship and presence, and wish her a speedy recovery.  Thanks to those of you who will pray for Carole.  We're also happy to pray for YOUR prayer requests if you let us know.  And with that said.....let's get started on our challenge.

The first thing I need to tell you about the word art file for this challenge is that it is NOT spelled incorrectly or written incorrectly.  It's is the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, and our preferred translation here at Word Art Wednesday.  That doesn't ever mean that you can't use different translations of the Bible for your own cards and projects.  We love God's Word, and it delights us to see it on your cards and art in any version.  It's also important to mention again that you are never required to use scripture when playing along.  That's not a requirement, even though several people have had that misconception.  We really just enjoy seeing ALL the different forms of art you create.  You're always welcome to read our Challenge Rules if you have any questions about "the rules" and such.  This beautiful verse (and beautiful piece of scriptural word art) would be such an awesome one to make into something you can frame, and using it as a wedding gift or a new home house-warming gift.  It's a great verse about the home, and as we all know; our houses are a very important part of who we are as people.  These two verses say, "Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall all the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches".  The words "an house" refer to an individual or family home; and one that is grounded in wisdom, strengthened by understanding (good judgement), and prospers by continuing knowledge (growing in God's Word and developing as a Christian or child of God).  These things will cause our chambers (the rooms of our homes - as well as all the needs in our lives) to be filled with all precious and pleasant riches (the desires of our heart).  It's fun to look at verses from God's Word and learn what message they have for us.  We hope you enjoy creating with this beautiful piece of God's Word in the form of word art (if you so choose).  Let God's Word be a blessing to you.

As always, you are welcome to save the 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 all 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 as we share it. 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.  Please know that this doesn't mean we are judging anyone.  We're simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!
