Lovingkindness Day and Night

I thought I'd make a card celebrating this great Psalm word art from Word Art Wednesday. How comforting to know that God is watching over us day and night. David remarked that God's song would be with him in the night. To me that idea of songs in the night represents a spirit of joy, lightheartedness, peace, and comfort. This verse says:

"Yet the Lord will command His loving kindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. Psalm 42:8"

The meaning of the verse gave me the idea for the design. I embossed and sanded clouds for the left panel to represent the day. I used a piece of designer paper showing a star map and a star border from that paper from the retiring Timberline paper pack. I used heart and retired star sparkles to accent. Both of the Honey designer paper pieces were cut using Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste. One handy feature of the new Cricut Explore is that you can alter the design shape by unlocking the x and y axis sizes ( or horizontal and vertical sizes) and change the proportions of the design. That's what I did with the honey mat.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you with His lovingkindness!
