Word Art Wednesday - Isaiah 54:17

I wanted to start off this post with the verse for this week's Word Art Wednesday challenge because it's a verse that means so much to me right now. My husband and I are trying to find a baby to adopt, we're almost approved with a completed home study (just a bit more paperwork) and each time we get to feeling good about things, something happens that puts doubt in my mind. I feel like we're being attacked for wanting to do something good, something that we feel the Lord put on our hearts to accomplish. So, this verse over the past few days has been a huge blessing to me.
Here are the details of our challenge this week:
Use the verse above, which you can pick up at the Word Art Wednesday blog
or use an uplifting sentiment on your creation.
She's offering 2 digital collage sheets of the winner's choice!
My Creation:
I've created a wall hanging that I'm going to send to a friend who is also going through some struggles right now. I'm sending it to her with prayers that she will continue doing the good thing the Lord has asked of her and that He will bless her and give her strength during times of struggling.
The background is digital paper from Daydream Designs from the "My Heart Still Dances" collection. The flowers are from a digital scrapbook I downloaded and then I used stickles to give it some sparkle. I also "antiqued" the edges with a brown ink pad. I hope you enjoyed!
Have a blessed day!

Happy Sunday to you! I hope you're doing well and enjoying your day of rest!
Today's card is featuring an adorable Digi Garden image called Nurse Emily. I made this for my cousin who is a nurse, but fell and broke both her ankles! She's had surgery and is on her way to recovery, so I thought I'd send her this little cutie to cheer her up. Enjoy!
Have a blessed day!

Word Art Wednesday - Psalm 51:10

Good morning! Welcome to another wonderful challenge day at Word Art Wednesday!
Today's "words" are from Psalm 51:10 -

Everytime I read this verse, it reminds me of a song we used to sing in church using this verse. It was always one of my favorites and I find it comes to mind quite often. I like to sing it when I'm being selfish, because that is the time I need my heart cleaned the most. It always helps me put things in perspective and remember that God is first, not me.
I created my card using Daydream Designs My Heart Still Dances Paper Pack for the background and the ballet slippers are from My Heart Still Dances Colored Digi Set 1. I added a bit of glitter to the slippers to make them sparkle.

Please join us this week at Word Art Wednesday! You can create any masterpiece as long as you use uplifting words in your creation! (that is what I love most about WAW, it's all about encouragement and uplifting others!) You can even pick up this verse from Karen at the Word Art Wednsday blog and use it on your creation! I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge this week!

Have a blessed week!
