Anything Goes - #378-#379

Welcome by for our new challenge, everyone!  Sorry I'm running a little late in getting this posted.  If you didn't happen to see the message on my last post, I am looking for a few more Guest Designers for the year.  If you're interested, please place the letters GD after your name in your entry below, or just send me an email.  We're all SO excited to have you play along with us and share your wonderful art, so let's get started with the challenge.

Our word art was created using 1 Corinthians 12:27 which tell us, "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular".  What a blessing and a joy to know that we are part of something SO much bigger than ourselves.  Many people search their whole lives for a place to belong.  People try joining clubs, gymns, attending social groups, and all sorts of things that are fun and help us get through life's ups and downs; but many still never find that place of belonging they're looking for.  Perhaps the reason they're still searching for that perfect place of belonging is because all those other options are temporary.  They can only fill a small portion of our lives.  But when we have asked Christ to be our Lord and Savior, our friend, and eternal source of security; we are part of something SO big, and something that lasts FOREVER and gives us a peace that passes understanding.  Nothing on this earth could ever fill that void in our lives quite like Jesus does.  We become members, in particular, we are members of the body of Christ.  Each of us is equally important in this collective body because we all have different talents, gifts and worth.  If you're still looking for that perfect place to feel love and a sense of perfect belonging....Jesus is the answer!

As always, you are welcome to save the free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are never 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, for a total of ten (10) entries per two-week challenge. 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!

that it will be a blessing to you.

Francesca Vignoli from Sponsor, Heffy Doodle

Our March Guest Designer, MariLynn DeGroot
I ran out of black ink and couldn't print the
word art, so I'm sharing a Heffy Doodle card
I made in September (and sent to Tamara). It
uses their Mewniverse Stamp Set.  If you go to
Heffy Doodle to look around, leave a comment
on MY Blog telling me which is your favorite
Heffy Doodle Stamp, Die or product.....
