  2. Gloria: THANK YOU so much for sharing this lovely butterfly card with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Sometimes I get discouraged that we can't seem to get more participants, and instead.....I know God just wants me to be more grateful for the participants that we DO have. You have been SO faithful to play along with us, and I want you to know how very much I appreciate you, Gloria. Your art is always so pretty and it's always very clear to me that you create from the heart. Thanks for being a blessing to me week after week. I am grateful to God for you, and I pray that He will bless you for being so kind and supportive to us at Word Art Wednesday. I really hope you enjoy our fellowship, and that you will continue to share with us.
    Blessings to you always,

    1. Thank you Karen. I really appreciate your loving words. I always hope my work will show others that anyone can create and that we need to just create what we feel led to create. It isn't about the challenges; but they make it fun and it is a place to share with others. I am grateful for you and your team and feel honored to be able to share on your blog. Thanks again. Have a blessed week!! Hugs, Gloria
