He Will Never Leave Me! Word Art Wednesday #282-283

Hello, Y'all! 
I hope this post finds you all doing well and staying sane.   I know I'm going just a little bit crazy over here.   Things have been so busy that I feel like I'm treading water.  Thankfully, I belong to the God who can walk on water and the winds and waves obey His voice.  Honestly, what more do I need?  
And then, there are His promises.  I personally cling to the promise He has made to never leave me.  That brings me to our Word Art Wednesday verse and my card design:

Isn't this such a precious promise?   God's promises are true.  He can never break them, He does not grow weary.  We can rest and trust in Him!
Oh, how I thrive on this truth.  When my life is like a crazy whirlwind and I don't know what I'm doing from one moment to the next, I can always trust in what God has said in His word.  That is my constant hope.

I used MME the sweetest thing/tangerine papers for my card.  I love this paper line and have actually almost exhausted my supply.  eek!
I fussy cut some flowers from the same papers and adhered them using foam dimensional tape.  I added a strip of lace and a couple of enamel dots for texture.

Rejoice, and Be Joyful! Psalm 5:11 Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Oh, My! 
  I almost forgot to post today!  My apologies for the lateness of this post.  
I just want to invite you all to play along in this week's Word Art Wednesday challenge. 
The verse for this challenge comes to us from the Psalms.  Always a great choice, the Psalms are like a healing balm for the soul.  Sometimes when I'm struggling to read from God's word, I just go to Psalms and I'm once again filled with awe at the character of my God. 
Here is my card design:

I love that this verse reminds us that the source of our Joy is Christ Himself.   Not our circumstances, or our performance or the stuff we have or don't have.

I chose to use Pink Paislee paper from the Citrus Bliss line.  I've been using this line a lot lately.  It's just so bright and cheerful.  Perfect for this verse.  I fussy cut the lemons and added a little distress glitter to the tops.  I then adhered them using foam dimensional squares.

Back Again for Word Art Wednesday #278-279

Hi There, 
Welcome back.   I've been a little MIA lately.  I'm hoping that with summer break right around the corner that I'll be able to stop in more frequently.  But then again, I've said that before.  Haha, that's why I so appreciate those of you who keep coming back, it's for you that I continue to share my craft and my heart. 
The Word Art for this challenge is found in John 12:23.

In the context this verse is found, Jesus is referring to the hour of His death on the cross.   But how can glory be found in such a terrible death such as what Christ experienced?    Because in that moment Christ defeated death, the power of sin, and became our once for all sacrificial lamb!   Christ in that moment finished what He had come to do.   Oh, the beautiful, terrible cross.   Such a seeming contradiction,  but all part of God's perfect plan of redemption. 

Misty D. Designs

I'm so thankful that Jesus "endured the cross for the joy set before Him".  That He endured it for me and for all those who will believe.   

Misty D. Designs

I invite all you creatives to play along in the Word Art Wednesday challenge.   The Word Art is free to use, but not required.   The theme is "anything goes".   Also, if you're on IG tag us or use #wawchallenge for your chance to be featured.   We love to show off your creative talents. :)

 I wish you all a week of growing in the knowledge of Christ.  As we look forward to the celebration of  Easter this Sunday may your heart and mind be drawn to meditate on the gospel and be enraptured by the one who sets us free.

Blessings,

My Encouragement, and a Word Art Wednesday Card

Hi! 
Oh, where to begin?  For starters, I will just say that this week being only half over has really been a struggle for me.   It has been full of conflicts, temptations, tears, and sin.  Yes, sin.  I have failed miserably and have not handled what has come my way with grace.   I can honestly say that I was not feeling very creative this week and that my card probably reflects that.  Just keeping it real, this is not one of my favorites,
but this verse...
I had not had a chance to view the Word Art Wednesday for this week until yesterday when I began to make my card.  When I pulled it up on my computer, I was overwhelmed.   It is exactly what I needed to be reminded of with the week that I've had.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes".  Just let that thought sink in!   Whoa!  I don't know what else to say.   The overwhelming gratitude of what this verse means leaves me speechless!  I am not deserving for God to promise any of this to me and yet He has.  This verse is referring to what it will be like in Heaven, in the presence of our Great God.  He has promised this end to all who have put their trust in Him.  I'm so thankful for this hope because bad days will happen and I will fail, but His promises remain true!

I used my Taylored Expressions Arbor Accessories stamp to create the background for my card.  I stamped, then heat embossed the gold.  I then watercolored pink over the entire background and watercolored the green leaves.  I used a sharpie pen to draw the leaves.   I was really wanting to try out this technique, but I'm not happy with how it looks with this particular card.  I think I will try it again later with a different style of card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for your support of creatives like me.  I would love to see your creations, so please come join us at Word Art Wednesday and link up what you've crafted. 

Blessings,
