Challenge #95 - Anything Goes

We had another great week of entries, and we thank each of you for sharing with us.  For those of you who are new to our challenge blog......WELCOME!  For those of you who have played along with us before, THANK YOU for continuing to share with us, and for helping to share the news of our challenge blog with others.  We have a VERY SPECIAL SPONSOR this week!  Scott at Blue Moon Scrapbooking has offered up a $20 gift certificate to his amazing on-line scrapbook supply store.  If you've never shopped Blue Moon before, you will want to check it out.  They carry all the BIG NAMES in scrapbooking, many hard-to-find items, and they also have reasonable shipping prices.  In addition, we also have the lovely My Heart Pieces digital stamps offering a fabulous prize to a second winner this week.  Please feel free to share up to five (5) projects with us to increase your odds of winning.  Not to mention, we LOVE seeing your sweet projects!
 
Our word art file/scripture for this week is John 1:12.  This verse first tells us that ALL those who have "received Him" (those who have called on the name of Jesus, God in human flesh, and placed their trust in Him alone) have been given the power to become His sons and daughters (to inherit His kingdom as one of His children).  What a wonderful truth from God's Word!  Simply by placing our eternal faith in what He did for us on the cross, He gives us the power to become His child forever, and to spend all eternity with Him when we die.  This is yet another beautiful and wonderful promise He has given us in His Word.  He will consider us His children, and will never forsake us when we place our faith in Him.  Salvation is SO wonderful, and SO easy - just call on His name!
 
You are welcome to save this week's 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 art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. We just  want God's Word to be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".  They have been recently revised, and we ask that you check them out if you aren't familiar with our challenge guidelines.  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines.

Here is this week's free scripture/word art.  Enjoy!
