The Lord is Good! Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends,
Here is my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday.  Hope all is well with everyone.  This is just a quick post and to encourage you to head over to the WAW challenge blog and play along with our Anything Goes/Family Friendly challenge!!  Lots and lots of creative projects are uploaded there plus a timely devotional that will focus on our Scripture Art today from Lamentations 3:25

I've used the Taylored Expressions Modern Mosiac Layering Stencil with the following TE inks:
Cilantro, Key Lime and Sprinkles.  Isn't that a pretty color combo, I used the TE brushes to apply and the Scripture Art was die cut using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle. The layering stencils are so easy to use! 

Wonderful and encouraging verse today:
The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.  Lamentations 3:25

Have a great week, seek the Lord and see His goodness !

Refreshed Soul - Work Art Wednesdayd

Hello delightful friends!
Time for our Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes (family friendly) challenge! This week our sponsor is CAS-ual  Fridays! Super cute stamps and dies and lots of other crafty supplies you will find in their online store!!
Here is my card for the challenge:
I started with a white piece of card stock and using the 3/4" stripe stencil set (Taylored Expressions) I made the diagonal stripes using Blue Corn ink (TE) and the TE brushes to apply.
I used the Stitched Circle Die (SSS) to cut out the gingham check pattern paper and the Scripture Art. Flower die is three pieces, center, petals and leaves. I am sorry I'm not sure which company this is from, I left it at work :-{ I popped up the flower with a dimensional square.  Pretty simple design and it was fun using the stencil plus I was trying to keep with a red, white and blue color scheme.
Great Scripture for today, do you know that the Lord desires to satiate and refresh your soul. There is hope!  Get into the Word and let His Words bring about the hope and peace you desire, Jesus is waiting for you to call on Him.
Thanks for visiting!! God bless.

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Guess who our sponsor is this week?

Hello Delightful Friends!

Time for another fun challenge at Word Art Wednesday!  Our sponsor this week is a favorite company of mine: Lawn Fawn! Be sure and check out their site and visit their blog for fun and instructional videos, too! Our challenge is Anything Goes/Family Friendly and you can share 5 new projects each week the challenge runs (2 weeks).  The more you share with us the more chances of winning a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn! 

Here is my card:

The Lawn Fawn products I've used are Under the Stars stamp set; Starry Night and Simple Stitched Hillside dies. I've add a bit of Nuvo Crystal Drops for dimension.  My bunnies were stamped with Taylored Expressions Oreo hybrid ink and colored with pencils and the stars were stamped with a white ink. The Scripture Art is from Galatians 5:13 "For brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another."
Wouldn't it be nice if the protesters/rioters would live by those words. Things are so ugly right now especially in the big cities.  It's so sad.  Many prayers are needed to continue for peace and that people would lovingly serving one another instead of hating and walking in the flesh which is being influenced by the enemy of our soul (the devil). So many are deceived and blinded with hate.

Help us Lord...  
Thanks for visiting.

Word Art Wednesday - Happy Father's Day

Hello Delightful Friends!
Hoping you are well and staying safe.  We have our latest Word Art Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes/Family Friendly) it runs for two weeks.  Be sure and visit the challenge blog and check out the sponsor and prize for a lucky participant.

Here is my card:

This was fun to make.  I wanted to make the background with a summer color theme and not too frilly cause this is for Father's Day.  I've used the Taylored Expressions plaid stencil to create it (I can't tell you the ink colors, I left my mini inks at work!)  I die cut each layer with the Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die and the Scripture Art was die cut using the Spellbinder Nestabilities Deckled Rectangle and added them to a white card base. I have to share that the stencil will be a real fun go to item for making backgrounds and the color combinations are endless!  Very fun!  I've popped up the Scripture Art and also doubled the die cutout to make it a bit more substantial by gluing them together.  No bows or buttons for dad, I kept it pretty clean and simple.  The Scripture is from Psalm 112:1-2.   

Thanks for visiting! God bless.

Place of Refuge - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends,
Time for our Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes/Family Friendly Challenge.  Our lovely sponsor this week is Newton's Nook Blog ($20), they have some really cute stamps!!Shop HERE.  I hope you will play along and share your new projects with us at WAW.  The more times you enter the more opportunities to win! (You can enter 5 times per week and the challenge lasts for 2 weeks!)

Here is my card:

Scripture Art is Proverbs 14:26 "In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence and his children shall have a place of refuge."  In these uncertain times, one thing is certain and that is my strong confidence in the Lord's place of refuge. I am safe in His hands.  My heart is breaking over this last week.  From the disturbing and disgusting act that led to the death of George Floyd and now the equally disgusting  rioting and anarchist activities.  There is one word for it and it is e-v-i-l. The Lord spoke to my heart this evening while I was at our prayer meeting and that the need was repentance and revival.  Just as the word repentance comes first in the dictionary, it's got to come first in people's hearts for revival to come.  We must have repentant hearts for there to be change and healing.  Repentance is having a change of mind and heart, from going your own way to going God's way.  He's given us the way to follow, the words to obey, now it's time to listen and really hear and obey, we must be accountable for our actions toward God and our brothers and sisters.  
"We know we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.  1 John 3:14-15

Card details:  
Stamps: Taylored Expressions - Treetops background
Die: Botanical Spring, Amy Design and  Sizzix Die set (frames out sentiment)
Grass border die - Taylored Expressions
Copic Markers to color (assortment)

Call Unto Me - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends!

Hope this finds you feeling well and in good health!  Still on the Stay in Place mandate, little openings here and there for the small businesses, which I think is giving people a little hope that there will be an end to this soon.  Our county statistics were shared yesterday: 135,558 population,  86 cases, 59 recovered, 25 active and 2 deaths (one was a 97 year old not sure of the age of the other person but they were elderly).  We need to pray for those who are so vulnerable, not just the elderly but those suffering from depression, too.

I hope that you are digging into God's Word for hope and inspiration to get through these tough times.  The Scripture Art on my card is certainly a good one to cling to.  If you would like this digital art go to Word Art Wednesday this week and grab it, it's free.  The verse is this weeks Scripture art that the design team is using and it's perfect for the times we are living.  We need the Lord to answer and show us great and mighty things! We have to humble ourselves and call to Him.  He has the answers.

Art Glitter is our sponsor this week ($50) will be the prize for one blessed winner!  But you have to play to be able to have a chance of winning.  You can share your new crafty projects (up to 5 a week) at Word Art Wednesdays Anything Goes - Family Friendly Challenge. This is a two week challenge.

I've used the Doodle Flowers Background stamp by Taylored Expressions, colored with Karin Brushmarkers and a waterbrush to blend. The die is a scalloped oval Nestabilities die from Spellbinders, popped up with dimensional adhesive squares. I've matted the watercolor paper with a dark blue card stock.

Thanks for visiting! God bless.
