Lovely cards and thanks for sharing that it's card making day. I just read your last post on Joseph, too, which was very beautiful and reminded me of the power of forgiveness. Thanks for adding me to your circle. I don't get to tour the paint party Friday as much as I did before, so it was a nice reminder to visit your wonderful and inspiring blog.

I am sorry to say I missed Card Making day again this year as it fell on the day of my hubby's montly play he does in Manhattan. He does recreations of old radio shows and did Poe, and The Shadow! I see you were very productive. All great personal cards, that first one had me smiling from ear to ear with that face! Love how you personlized them for each person too!

Each of your creations is so personal & unique & i can see much thought has gone into their making. I think that last one has to be my favourite with all the textures you incorporated. Thank you to for reminding me of the verse.

The people who receive your cards must nearly turn inside out with excitement. We/me in blogland just admire and wonder how does he do this" I thought the monkey looked like Curious George. All your cards make me want to be more creative. We are so blessed to see this beautiful work of art and are thankful you post your creations in our challenge.

Arnoldo, what a wonderful collection of cards!!! I love all three but the baby shower card is my fav. Love how you used the negative from the die cut backed with a patterned paper to mat the little boy image. I may have to incorporate this idea into a scrapbook page someday. Thanks so much for blessing us with your cards at Word Art Wednesday. Have a blessed week!

Your artwork and your dedication of the post to your dear daughter are such a wonderful expression of fatherly love. She is probably just as proud of you as you are of her. I wish her all the best in her future course at the university.
As always, I love every one of your artworks, but I have to say that the first one with the shoes is my favourite - of course.
