Where Your Treasure Is. . . .

I did a little bit of "double-dipping" this week so to speak.  I created a card for my Hostess project at Mark's Finest Papers but I used this week's scripture/word art for Word Art Wednesday, so I combined two Design Team Projects into one card.  That may be "cheating" just a bit, but I actually needed TWO cards for Word Art Wednesday this week, so the second one (using the sponsor's image) won't be revealed until my post (tomorrow) on Wednesday.  I used this verse from Matthew 6:21, and combined the scripture with a cute Bugaboo pirate image.  This is the Buried Treasure stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and it is one of my MFP favorites.  The map image, the chest, and the sentiemnts all work together so beautifully. I just couldn't resist this sweet pirate from Bugaboo to go along with it. I hope you all like it.  You are all more than welcome to stop by the Sketch With a Twist Challenge on Speedy TV to play along with us - we would LOVE to have you join us.

So, you got a peek at my scripture card for Wednesday's Word Art Wednesday challenge.  And yet, I'm still super excited about the second card I was able to make for that challenge using a darling image from the Word Art Wednesday 10/24/12 Sponsor, Robyn's Fetish.  I used the most darling birthday cake image along with a sweet "Menu" ATC card from V's Sweet Ideas who is a future sponsor at Word Art Wednesday.  We are blessed with the BEST SPONSORS at Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog where the theme is ALWAYS Anything Goes.  So many great challenges to play along in, and SO little time.  All I can say as that I am always VERY grateful when you play along in my challenges.

Bless and be blessed.  Spread kindness and goodness where you are able.  Take opportunities to help people, share a smile or word of encouragement.  Let people see Jesus in YOU.  Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

  9. Hi Karen - great pirate card! Hey there matte! Not sure if that is how you spell it. Thanks for visiting my blog today - Karen I did see where we were the top 3 - What an honor. I emailed Pauline by using the only email I saw on the blog - so I hope that was the correct one (something like magdalamade...) I could not find another email on the right side. Congratulations on winning! Thanks for the tip about entering my card in other challenges - I am trying to get organized so I know what challenges I have entered - right now I am trying a notebook - I am finding I have to enter LESS challenges and just stick with a few because it is very confusing to me to keep track! LOL - Have a great week! I look forward to making more Christian cards - glad you lead me to the sites! ~ Gail ~

  18. This is so clever and is a powerful reminder that God's word applies to our everyday situations! Pirates are so popular with children right now, and I know i will see some come to school in pirate disguises on Halloween. I will remember to pray that their treasures will be heavenly ones! Thanks for sharing your darling project and for focusing on God's word.
