Word Art Wednesday - Happy Father's Day

Hello Delightful Friends!
Hoping you are well and staying safe.  We have our latest Word Art Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes/Family Friendly) it runs for two weeks.  Be sure and visit the challenge blog and check out the sponsor and prize for a lucky participant.

Here is my card:

This was fun to make.  I wanted to make the background with a summer color theme and not too frilly cause this is for Father's Day.  I've used the Taylored Expressions plaid stencil to create it (I can't tell you the ink colors, I left my mini inks at work!)  I die cut each layer with the Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die and the Scripture Art was die cut using the Spellbinder Nestabilities Deckled Rectangle and added them to a white card base. I have to share that the stencil will be a real fun go to item for making backgrounds and the color combinations are endless!  Very fun!  I've popped up the Scripture Art and also doubled the die cutout to make it a bit more substantial by gluing them together.  No bows or buttons for dad, I kept it pretty clean and simple.  The Scripture is from Psalm 112:1-2.   

Thanks for visiting! God bless.

Place of Refuge - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends,
Time for our Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes/Family Friendly Challenge.  Our lovely sponsor this week is Newton's Nook Blog ($20), they have some really cute stamps!!Shop HERE.  I hope you will play along and share your new projects with us at WAW.  The more times you enter the more opportunities to win! (You can enter 5 times per week and the challenge lasts for 2 weeks!)

Here is my card:

Scripture Art is Proverbs 14:26 "In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence and his children shall have a place of refuge."  In these uncertain times, one thing is certain and that is my strong confidence in the Lord's place of refuge. I am safe in His hands.  My heart is breaking over this last week.  From the disturbing and disgusting act that led to the death of George Floyd and now the equally disgusting  rioting and anarchist activities.  There is one word for it and it is e-v-i-l. The Lord spoke to my heart this evening while I was at our prayer meeting and that the need was repentance and revival.  Just as the word repentance comes first in the dictionary, it's got to come first in people's hearts for revival to come.  We must have repentant hearts for there to be change and healing.  Repentance is having a change of mind and heart, from going your own way to going God's way.  He's given us the way to follow, the words to obey, now it's time to listen and really hear and obey, we must be accountable for our actions toward God and our brothers and sisters.  
"We know we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.  1 John 3:14-15
