Welcome to our newest challenge at

The challenge this fortnight is "One for the Kids" and we are being sponsored by

I've been given this wonderful image "Texting Friends".  It's so cute and reminds me so much of my daughter and her friend.  They are constantly on the phone texting each other...even when they should be studying.  It drives me absolutely nuts.  What is a parent to do.  

Here is the inside of the card.  When I saw this sentiment from from Create with TLC, I just had to have it for this image.  I thought it was so my daughter.  I also had some trouble trying to decide on a color for the shirts so these are paper pieced.  I really love how it looks with a pattern on the shirts.

When I was looking for a background for this card, I ran across some papers that my sister and I made when we were playing with her Dylusions sprays a few weeks ago.  I had never used them before and using watercolors was so new to me.  This paper is the first one I made.  I thought these colors looked so good together that I kept it.  I'm so happy I did.

I hope you will pop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the other fabulous creations by the DT members.  Don't forget to leave them some love.

This is adorable...I love the coloring of the images and the inking of your background. So delighted you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge started today so, I hope you link with us again. Leaving you with God's inspiration in Ephesians 3:16-18 which says, "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ." Hugs always!
