He Will Bless - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful friends!

So how is everyone out there in blogland?  Hope this week finds you healthy and in a good place both physically and spiritually.
Well, it's time for this weeks Word Art Wednesday challenge (Anything Goes - Family Friendly) and if you are feeling a little stir crazy due to the "stay at home" orders due to the Corona Virus this challenge may have come at an ideal time.  Of course it's always a great time to get crafty! Little tip or suggestion, pray while you're making your project to share.  We need prayer warriors to lift up the nations that are devastated by this virus and all those who are being affected. (that's quite a prayer list to keep you busy for a while.)

My card today features the Avery Elle Reversed Pink Rectangle Die and the lovely 6x6 paper by Hackney & Co called Wildflower Meadow. This paper pack is so pretty and some of the papers are textured and some are even pearlescent!  Gorgeous!  I've added a couple other dies to this to embellish, the leafy die from Taylored Expressions and the Butterfly die from Spellbinders.  The leaf spray is cut out of black card stock, the butterfly was cut from white card stock and then I "smooshed" ink on my craft sheet and then moved my butterfly through it without watering it down.  The inks I've used are Distress ink Peacock feathers and Versa Magic chalk ink Key Lime by Tsukineko.  After the ink dried I added Versamark ink to the butterfly and then added clear embossing powder and heat set it.  My lovely background art was created by my 4 year old nephew Cylas who created this lovely piece at the age of 2!
Special thanks to our sponsor this week at Word Art Wednesday which is Heffy Doodle!!  Check out their cute stamp sets and dies! 

Our featured Scripture is Psalm 115:13
"He will bless those who fear the LORD, both small and great."

Doesn't really matter your "station" in life, God is not a respecter of persons He will bless the rich and poor, the peasant and prince, the layperson and pastor. What God looks at is the heart of each individual, does that man or woman fear Him? Does that person recognize who He is? A word of wisdom from the Scriptures "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15) Be faithful to the Lord, obey His word and know that the Lord keeps His promises. He will bless those who fear Him. 

Thanks for visiting and God bless!

Spring Globe Scene - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends!

I have a fun card to share for our Word Art Wednesday Challenge which features the Snow Globe from DRS Designs, a Christmas stamp that I've changed into a Spring Globe!  It took very little masking and I kept it pretty simple but just think of the possibilities with this stamp! I love versatility.
Thank you DRS Designs for sponsoring the prize for this weeks challenge at Word Art Wednesday!! Please play along with us, it's Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge.

I've stamped on 100# Bristol Vellum paper and then watercolored the images with Zig Clean Color Brushes.  I used very little water to blend.  The cute images are from a Lawn Fawn Butterfly Kisses set. I masked using post-it notes.  I popped up the globe on the designer paper which was a scrap from Simple Stories Oh Happy Day 12x12 paper.

inside of card:

The inside was colored with pencils and I cut out the Scripture art with a circle die and using my trimmer I made a straight cut at the bottom of the circle to match up with the globe.  Thankfully I sized my Scripture art to fit perfectly!! I totally guessed!

The Scripture this week is Ephesians 3:20 "Now to Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, vs 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever, Amen
Oh to know and understand the love that Christ Jesus has for us!  It passes all knowledge and then to be able to realize He alone is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or even think and then work in us to bring Him glory.  It truly is mind blowing isn't it?!  If we know Him and love Him we want to please Him by living an obedient and sanctified life.  Seek Him and dig into His Word and be filled with His Spirit. You will experience the joy of the Lord.

Have an incredible week, thanks for visiting.
