Hello! I hope you are having a good week. It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we are going to the book of beginnings, Genesis, for our inspiration. Genesis 28:15 states, "And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of." The context of this verse is that Jacob is leaving home and going to Haran to visit his mother's family. He falls asleep and the Lord comes to him in a dream and gives him this promise. The Lord tells Jacob that even though he's going to a far away land to live among people he doesn't know, the Lord will be with him wherever he goes and that someday He'll bring Jacob back to his homeland. How comforted Jacob must have been! The Lord has given similar promises to those who have put their faith and trust in Him. In Hebrews 13:5, the Lord promises, "...I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." John 14:3 tells us that He's preparing a place for us and that He'll come back to get us and take us to our new Home. What great and precious promises for the Believer!
For my card this week, I used the current sketch from MOJO Monday for the card design (I rotated the sketch a quarter turn). This week Word Art Wednesday has three wonderful sponsors. Bugaboo Stamps is one of them and provided me with this Sign It Kidz Flowers digi image to use. I had so much fun coloring this little girl and her sign. I will definitely be using her again. Her sign is so versatile and would hold just about any sentiment (digi or otherwise). Thanks Jodie for the fun digi!!
I colored the image with Copics and added some sparkle to all the flower centers with some stickles. It's been a long time since I colored, I've missed it...and I'm out of practice!
