Word Art Wednesday - Psalm 121:5

Hello Delightful Friends!
Are you feeling it?  Spring.... maybe... at least today.  I have to laugh because I know very well here in northern California we get a little sneak peek of Spring and then it's gone again for a few weeks.  It's as if God is saying, "Winter is almost over, hang in there, here is a little preview of Spring but don't put away your winter clothes!"  Spring is definitely not a time to put away the winter clothes that is for sure, the wind can be unbearably cold her in the damp coastal area that we live in.  But it is so nice to see the trees budding and the sun shining even if it's from the inside looking out! If I step outside reality hits me right in the bare face... brrrr!

Well it's time for another card for our Word Art Wednesday challenge (Anything Goes, Family Friendly).  Our sponsor this week is The Project Bin a fun place to shop online for clear stamps with snappy sentiments! Their blog has a great page of tutorials so be sure and check it out!!!

Isn't this adorable bee paper? (Photo Play Tulla and Norbert line - Honey Bee)
I've used the Polka in the Meadow line (Lawn Fawn) to frame out the cute Honey Bee paper, and a white A2 card base.  The little bee is from the Photo Play stamp set from that same line which I stamped and fussy cut after coloring with a yellow and gray pencil.  The Scripture Art was matted with black card stock.

The Scripture this week is from Psalm 121 verse 5 and is from one of the Songs of Ascent. It is one of the songs sung by the Jewish pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem to worship.  This particular verse talks about how the Lord will keep you, I'm so glad I don't have to "keep" myself, the Lord is my protector, He surrounds me and watches over me.  He is the One who is vigilant, so much more than I am capable of. Plus He surrounds me with favor, He defends me as I trust and rejoice in Him.
2 Timothy 1:12..."for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day."  I am so glad He is my Keeper!

As it is written - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful friends!

Here is my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes/Family friendly Challenge #426 & 427! Our fabulous sponsor Seth Apter Designs is donating 2 $25 gift certificates that means 2 winners!  Be sure and check out this talented mixed media artist's blog HERE.

As usual I keep my cards pretty CAS.  This year I've been trying really hard to use the larger scraps of designer paper that I have on hand and this card is no exception.  I wish I could tell you what company the paper is from but... they are from my scraps. I did a couple of angle cuts to design this one and then added 3 cute little hearts since it's Valentine's Day this week and the word heart and love are in the Scripture Art.
Our verse this week is from 1 Corinthians 2:9 and isn't it the truth!  We just can't really comprehend what God has prepared for us, but I know it's wonderful!  Plus He has given us just a little taste of His goodness with the "down payment" of the Holy Spirit.  Oh taste and see that the Lord He is good!!

Well have a great week, thanks for visiting and may God bless you richly!
