Looking to Jesus - Word Art Wednesday

Welcome back to this weeks Word Art Wednesday Challenge!  Hope you are checking all the inspiration over at the Challenge blog and more importantly playing along!  This challenge last 2 weeks and you can submit 5 new projects for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor Pink and Main!  Have you seen their cute March release?  Thanks Michelle for sponsoring us this challenge!

Here is my card for the challenge:

Spring is in full bloom here in northern California!  The flowering trees, my wisteria is budding (yay!!) the colors are beginning to burst out.  Last challenge I was heading to Mount Shasta to check out the wedding venue for my daughter's upcoming wedding and we got stuck in the snow!!  Had to call a tow truck to the rescue.  What an adventure!  The snow was knee deep at the venue, sure hope it melts by the end of May!!  The wedding is outdoors and it's going to be such a pretty setting (minus the snow!)  So seeing the flowers starting to peek out has been very encouraging.

Here are a couple of pictures from my trip to Mount Shasta,

Stuck in the snow (fyi: I was not driving!)

Card info:
I water colored on 140# cold press Strathmore paper using Koi watercolors.  The clear stamp set is an American Crafts Florals (Kelly Creates line)which I've stamped with Archival Watering Can ink. I've mat the Scripture and the watercolor paper with a dark gray/charcoal card stock. 

The Scripture Art is free to use and you can grab it over at the Word Art Wednesday blog.
This week the verse is Hebrews 12:2 a perfect verse to get us ready for the Easter season.  It also is a reminder that Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith will help us to endure this race of life if we keep our eyes focused on Him.  Let's remember what He endured for us when He willing went to the cross and took our sins on Himself.  He willing endured the shame, remembering the joy that would come from the suffering.  What a blessed Savior we have!

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (in chapter 11), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 2:1-2

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends!

Here is my card for this weeks challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

I've used Prima Watercolors for the coloring of this card and the flower and vine stamps from the Dare 2B Artzy set called Words of Praise were stamped with Distress Antique Linen.  I started with a white card base, then matted the watercolor paper with a rose and gray card stock.  The Scripture was cut out with the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die.  I doubled up the ribbon at the bottom of the card. 
Our sponsor this week for our challenge is Hefty Doodle! Be sure and check out their blog for some fun inspiration HERE.
Thanks for visiting! 
Heading to Mount Shasta with my daughter for the day to check out the venue for her wedding in May.  Busy times are ahead!
