Wordart Wednesday

I think I might be too late to submit my card for this weeks challenge at www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com, but thought I would share it anyway.
There have been so many beautiful entries this week ,scripture does really bring out the best in crafters , no doubt about that!

                                                 Patterned paper  My Minds Eye "Hattie"
                                                 Our Daily Bread Designs Stamp
                                                 Sizzix Tattered flowers die
                                                 Papermania brads

I very rarely use stamped images as I don't usually get good results and am not very good at the colouring! Our Daily Bread Designs have such lovely stamps though that I must do some practicing and invest in a few more.
What a wonderful scripture this is for our busy weeks which seem to fly by sometimes.

Thanks for visiting today!

Hymn and Scripture Challenge STANDING ON THE PROMISES

This weeks challenge gave us a hymn which I have never sung before. When I followed Patters link to listen to the hymn  ,I recognised the tune, I had probably heard it many times on  Christian TV programmes from America. It is so different when you have the words before you. What was once a "catchy" chorus turns into a beautiful hymn with precious lyrics. I am sure I will be singing this one for a while too!
I chose both my scriptures from Isaiah, one to remind me to stand on the promises and the other, one of the many promises we can stand on.

I did manage two verses on my page , so maybe I am beginning to get used to my 6x6 format!
I managed to keep a little of the patterned paper showing as it is so nice and managed to only use one flower!
I can't seem to get very good photos at the moment ,the light has changed with the weather and I will have to do a little experimenting.

Hymn and Scripture Challenge HOW GREAT THOU ART

Has anyone else been singing this Hymn non stop for two weeks? I was even singing it in my dream last night! It is difficult to choose just one scripture describing our great God but in the end I decided on Psalm 104 verse 1, what a wonderful description of Him "clothed in honour and majesty"! I hope my page goes a little way to conveying the love we have for our Great God.

I have been listening to a great version of this hymn by the worship group at Abundant Life Church in the north of England.This is a large multi national church with all age groups, I think it goes to show how the old hymns can still be sung and enjoyed in contemporary worship services. Unfortuneately I can't seem to embed this video but maybe this link will work:

Thaks for visiting and looking forward to the next hymn today!
