Expectation - Word Art Wednesday #246 & 247

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!

I loved coloring this image from Penny Black!  It's called Good Neighbors, isn't it cute?  It was very fun to color with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I used Distress inks to color the background (Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass using a wet on wet technique).
I think I will be making some more cards with this stamp and changing out the sentiments for a gift set for perhaps one of my sisters.  (shhh... don't tell)

Well it's time for Word Art Wednesday's Family Friendly Challenge (#246 & 247).  This week our Scripture Art is from Psalm 62:5.  It's free to download and use!  Also, our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp!!

I've used 140lb Strathmore cold press watercolor paper and stamped with Archival Jet Black Ink (using my MISTI) and then used a variety of Zig Clean Color markers to color.  I've used a bright yellow card stock to mat the watercolor paper and my A2 base is white Neenah 80lb card stock.  

As I was meditating on this weeks Scripture verse I was drawn to the word "expectation".  That word is filled with hope!  Not only is it my expectation but it's literally connected to God like a cord.  I love the comfort that thought gives me.  Connected to God - He has me in His hands and no one can snatch me out of them (John 10:28-29). I can rest in Him and fully hope and trust in His provision in every area of my life for He truly is my defense and I shall not be moved.  This chapter is filled with hope and my hope is that you will take time to read it.  It is only 12 verses and I know it will be a blessing to you.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a wonderful week.
