God's Promise

The scriptural prompt for Word Art Wednesday this week is Isaiah 54:17

When we accept that Jesus died for our sins, we live under the new covenant. We are made right with the Lord, our sins are forgiven and we can enter into a relationship with him.  His laws are written in our hearts, and in our love for him we obey.  It is not through our striving but from him comes the will to obey.

The inheritance which awaits those who serve God is truth and victory.  It is the protection of God in all times of trouble and his friendship in all periods of adversity and victory over our foes.

and to know that I belong to him. I could not make myself acceptable to God by obeying the Law of Moses. God accepted me simply because of my faith in Christ. Php 3:9

Mail Art

The prompt for The Artist’s Playroom this week is Mail Art.  I am taking part in the postcard swap at Artists in Blogland, so it’s a good opportunity to show the 3 cards I am sending off this week.

I had already completed two, and was puzzling over what to do for the third one when I thought I could kill two birds with one stone so to speak! 

The next one was a quote that inspired me. I am an unashamed cat lover.  I just love the independence that they have.

This one is purely decorative; I find work like this quite therapeutic as it is a form of doodling.

I did these in pencil, I tried to use watercolour paints but found it difficult to paint so small, and the card had to be 6 x 4 in, really tiny for me.  I just don’t know how people manage ATCs which are even smaller.
