Because of His Lovingkindness

Hello and Happy Wednesday!! I hope you're staying warm in your corner of the world. We got 4" of snow today so the outside looks like a winter wonderland. It's so pretty but I'm also glad for the warm fireplace in our living room. :) I'm back with another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Psalm 63:3, "Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee." defines "lovingkindness" as tender kindness motivated by or expressing affection. The Lord is good to us and shows us kindness as a way of expressing His love for us. I'm still trying to figure out why He would love me and He is being kind to me to show me how much He loves me! With this in mind, how could we do anything else but praise Him?

I used scraps from a wintery 6 x 6 paper pad for my card today. I added lots of sparkle by dotting random snowflakes in each of the 3 snowflake patterns and random intersections on the plaid with Stickles glitter glue. The hearts were coated with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I'm still working to get my mojo flowing again after being out of my craft room for so long so this sketch by Reverse Confetti was just what I needed.

Sketch: Reverse Confetti Sketch #55
Cardstock: The Paper Studio Heavyweight (card base), Georgia Pacific (sentiment panel)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug 6 x 6 pad (Polar Pals)
Stamp: WORDart by Karen
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Dies (Standard Circle Small, Eyelet Circles), My Favorite Things Die-namics (Blueprints #29) Nuvo Crystal Drops (clear), Stickles glitter glue (Star Dust)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
