The prompt for Word Art Wednesday is Love; the scripture is from 1 John 4:7.  John is one of my favourite Apostles.  His message of Love for our fellow man and God’s love for us is so sorely needed in this world today. 

Sweet peas are one of favourite flowers they twine their way through their supports and bring much joy in spring and early summer.  This is how love should be sweet and tenacious!  I like to think that God created the sweet pea to show how he loves us!

This card started life as a watercolour.  I then tweaked it in photoshop and added the border using the colours of the sweet peas.  The text is the word art text for this week.  I changed the colours of the text in photoshop to match the sweet peas.


  1. Sweet peas are also one of my favorites.
    Are you doing any online PSE workshops??
    I so love this card, it looks like sweet peas climbing up, thier little tendrils grasping anything and the beautiful fragrant blooms making the garden a better place.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours; we love that you have taken time to share your wonderful work with us at Word Art Wednesday.

  2. This is just gorgeous, Sharon. My Mom's favorite flower is the Sweet Pea, and she has them in her garden every year so that she can have it fresh in the house. So, it always makes me think of her when I see them. Thanks for that blessing today.
    Thank you for sharing this with us. Have an awesome week in the Lord.

  3. Sharon, this is a beautiful watercolor. My mother's favorite flowers were carnations and sweet peas. She couldn't grow carnations but she really grew sweet peas on every fence. Your card is gorgeous. I love the colors and how you've done the text digitally.
