Featured Artist-Sandra Mangrum

I am so excited to introduce to you my first featured artist, Sandra Mangrum.  Sandra contacted me to share her cards on my blog and I was so excited to be able to share them with my readers.  Her cards are so very beautiful and she enjoys making them to bless others.  That, my friends, is why I create this WORDart.  It touches my heart so much to see the things you make with it and to know that it is blessing others.  That blesses me more than I could ever express.

Therefore encourage admonish, exhort one another and edify one another.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

My name is Sandra C. Mangrum. I am a retired Educator, wife and mother. I love the Lord and enjoy sharing my passion for paper crafts to encourage people with the Word of God.  I have been crafting since college. I used this medium as a classroom teacher to stimulate creativity while teaching and challenging students to learn the curriculum.

I am inspired to scrapbook to create timeless keepsakes for future generations of my family. I create cards to share the love of God through encouragement. I pray that my cards will be a channel that God uses to keep someone confidently pressing toward success rather than giving up. I feel if we plant encouragement in the lives of other people, we will reap a harvest of encouragement in our own.

Aren’t her cards just gorgeous?  Thank you, Sandra, for sharing your talent with us.  Sandra does not have a blog so, if you don’t mind, please leave her some love here.

I would LOVE to feature your art made with my WORDart on my blog.  If you are interested, please contact me using the “Contact me” button under my header.  I absolutely love getting to know my readers and the people who use my art.  It encourages me so much.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
