Abundant Mercy Gives Hope - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends!

Hope your week is going well!  I'm a bit late posting this weeks Word Art Wednesday challenge due to "poor time management"! Just being real 😏

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Sharon Johnson from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Be sure and check out the blog and all the inspiration for the Stamp Simply design team!
I've used the stamp set Thinking of You Rose (the gold embossed rose colored with Peerless Watercolors) and the Coffee or Tea Die set.  I used the small cup and re-purposed it as a vase.  That was a fun way to extend the use of the die set. I am always looking for ways to use dies to get the most out of them.  I tried to give it a marbled look with alcohol inks on glossy paper and then die cut the shape.  I had a branch of leaves cut out from watercolor paper in my "stash" of "I need to use these someday" and yay(!) I finally used them! The background paper is a piece from the Crate Paper Collection of Chasing Dreams and with the Scripture Art theme of the resurrection I thought it worked nicely.

Our Scripture Art is downloadable at Word Art Wednesday!  We would love for you to use it in a project.  It's not required to use it to play along with the challenge and don't forget this is a Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge and you can link 5 projects a week for the two week challenge.  Lots of opportunities to win!

Another great Scripture was chosen for today 1 Peter 1:3.  All of God's goodness to us begins with His being so merciful.  Peter, the author of this letter was the recipient of such mercy from our Lord, it makes it especially relevant in his writing of this letter.  This mercy is for each of us and it brings such a blessed hope to the soul. It's also a living hope because it is imperishable and will not fade away.  We can rejoice in this even in the midst of trials.  Peter was all too familiar with the trials and persecutions so in writing this he is encouraging all of us to know that even in the midst of tribulations we can hold onto the hope that comes through knowing the Lord Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection.  I would like to encourage you to read 1 Peter, it's a short letter and will speak to your heart in many ways I'm am sure of it.  Hope you have an especially blessed week in the Lord.
Thanks for visiting!

  1. What a creative way to use that teacup die -- I recently won it in a challenge, and now (thanks to you) I have an alternative way to use it!
