New Card - Word Art Wednesday and FREEBIE Printable Inspiration


The days are flying off the calendar and I’m in high chipmunk mode, hurry - scurry - furry all a flurry too.  I feel sorry I have not had time to blog hop much and leave some ♥ for my friends and readers, I do try to track back every on of you who leave a comment for me, though.   I’m a “nice-back” person.  One good turn deserves another and all that. 

I am using this week’s Word Art Wednesday card challenge is a reward between tasks - so scrub a tub = cut a file, clean a window = emboss something, sweep the floor = cut card base and print sentiment and so forth!  Do you ever make something you enjoy to do a “reward” for household chores or work? 

At any rate, I was able to complete a card - here goes!

Word Art Wednesday 44 - Double Prize week and using the FREE downloadable scripture 1 John 4:19



Printable word art - Word Art Wednesday


Crochet Yarn - pink

Pearl embellishment

LA Colors Art Deco Nail Art Laquer (yes, nail polish!)

Method Notes:

I opened this beautiful flower frame in my Silhouette Design Edition Software and broke it into parts.  I duplicated the flower twice.  This is how I achieved the dual layer look for the flower.

At the end I needed that last little touch to my card, so I painted some Art Deco Nail polish in a sparkly red shade to the tips of the flowers. I often use nail polishes, especially these nail art type because they have such a fine brush.  Perfect for painting buttons and recoloring small elements - for only $1 at most dollar stores.

Won’t you come play along with Word Art Wednesday - you’ll not only make something nice to bless to someone but you will also have a chance at some wonderful prizes! 



And even though I mention I am so busy - I’m happy busy.  I am doing things I love to do and I don’t take one tiny moment for granted.  I have been posting on Pinterest - I”m Mrs Miles if you’d like to follow me!   I took forever to figure it out but now I’ve made my way around and I’m totally enamoured!  I’ve got so many fabulous boards going and not only this, it’s got me making my own ideas, unfortunately in the middle of the night and I need to turn my brain off for a bit.  I like all the DIY, Nummy foods and also all the quotes and sayings I find - (my board is called Words of Wisdom)  Some of these sayings have birthed great greeting cards for me. 

And so, I decided I’d like to make my own “Word of Wisdom” to share with you - it’s a Printable so all you have to do is to  PRINT it off (standard 8.5 x 11 inch letter paper) FRAME and HANG!

The sun be warm and kind to you,

The darkest night, some star shine through.

The dullest morn a radiance brew,

And when dusk comes - Gods hand TO YOU.

  1. Thanks for sharing this with us at Word Art Wednesday, Barb. I thought the red flower was wax paper at first, so I had to read your post again to catch how you did this. Very cool!
    I appreciate your participation, and always look forward to visiting your lovely blog. Hope you're having a great week.
