Twist of Faith #49 - Sketch

Today we have a  new challenge at Twist of Faith:

It's Time to get Sketchy!

We have a sketch challenge this week and  another amazing sponsor!   Digi Darla Designs is once again sponsoring our challenge.  One lucky winner will receive some of her lovely images! We are so thankful for our sponsors each week - and Digi Darla Designs is certainly one to be thankful for time and time again!! 

I love this verse, Psalm37:4. I was thinking several times this past week about how important it was that I learned to delight in the Lord as a child. I looked forward to going to church several times a week, having fellowship dinners, practicing singing in the youth choir, reading my Bible before bed each night, and more. I especially felt drawn to things of the Lord when I went to church camp each summer and was able to spend entire days listening to teaching and missionaries, singing hymns, and fellowshipping with other Christians. I didn't know it then, but I did have the desire in my heart. God was preparing me for full-time Christian service in my adult years. During those years the desires of my heart were simply things that were part of being a pastor's wife, mother, or Christian school teacher. Now that I'm older and no longer work, He fills my heart with joy each day and gives me new opportunities to serve Him in ways I never imagined.
I hope you are able to find ways to delight in the Lord and to see the way He blesses you!

I used this fun floral arrangement, One Cup a Daisies, from Digi Darla. She has so very many beautiful flower images!  I colored the image with Copic markers and did a little fussy cutting. The verse is a Plain Jane (single verse) from Verve. I sponged the edges with some Goldrush ink.
This was so easy and fun to make since the sketch was already provided. I was ready to use some of my CTMH Sarita paper pack.  I cut two circular type images using the Cricut and two smaller circles, 2.5" and 2.75" using Cricut Art Philosophy.  I added Tan Sparkles, retired Goldrush organdy ribbon with a Goldrush flowered pin.
