New card for Word Art Wednesday 40 Challenge

I’ve been so remiss in posting a card for Word Art Wednesday.  I tell you, the ladies at WAW are so nice, they care about the people who post.  It really touched my heart to connect with Karen who reached out to me the other day.  Don’t you think people like this are lovely? 

I often find friends pop up at the time I (didn’t even know at the time) that I needed it most.  I guess that’s a quality of good friendships, that we do something when this happens. 

I found this lovely little poem I’d like to post here today which came to my hand just as if it were meant to be posted here, now - to share with you:

To help another on life’s way,

To smile and chase a frown away,

To hide a fault, reveal the good,

To love my neighbour as I should;

To bring good cheer to one who’s sad,

To make some lonely person glad,

To share my joys and blessings too,,

This I will try each day to do.

Supplies:

Designer Paper: Creative Imaginations

Word Art - Word Art Wednesday

Dove - FREE BIRD CLIPART 

Fairy Dust (glitter)

Niji Pearlescent Watercolors

Cardstock

Ribbon

Ink - Color Box Cat’s Eye in Dark Brown

I traced the dove PNG in my Silhouette Designer Edition Software and cut it. I print and cut the word art and layered layered layered everything.  The shape behind the word art is one from the Silhouette store. 

I had the most fun with shmooshing the dove with glue and then fairy dusting it all over.  After it was dried and sparkly it looked rather “flat” so I touched up areas with the Pearlescent watercolor.  The last touch was to stamp the branch with ink and ink up corner areas of the word art and card base. 

I’m off to check out the much-talented design team cards now, I try not to look too hard before because I get daunted.  Wow - what artistry comes out of this place! Won’t YOU join in too?
