Seek Ye First

Each year at our church, we have a "verse of the year", and in 2013, our verse was Matthew 6:33 and the whole congregation would recite it together each week.  It's really a beautiful verse to remind us that when our first priority is to seek God and His kingdom, then all the things we desire will be given us according to His perfect will.  We will have nothing left to be desired when He is put first in our lives.  Feel free to right click on the word art file and save it to your computer.  I sure enjoyed using it on my card this week.
I started with a Buff Ivory Notecard from our sponsor this week, the Kraft Outlet.  If you're not familiar with the Kraft Outlet, you will want to stop by and check out all their wonderful products.  They have everything from notecards and cardstock to the sweetest embellishments and trims you can find.  One lucky person will win a $15 gift certificate to the Kraft Outlet, as well as a second prize of 5 digis from the adorable Eureka Stamps.
The patterned papers I used are all Basic Grey papers from my stash - pretty old!  I also added some Zva Creative pearl swirls and some Recollections flowers from Michaels.  I machine stitched the papers together, and cut the word art sentiment with a Spellbinders die-cut.
I would just LOVE to have you all stop by Word Art Wednesday to share your art with us this week.   You are welcome to share up to five different projects or cards each week, and we are so grateful for each and every entry we receive.  We have awesome sponsors each week that you would be SO blessed to receive, so why not stop by and share with us?  Our theme is always Anything Goes as long as they're family-friendly (see Challenge Rules), and it excites us to have you play along.

I'm sharing my card here:
Creative Card Crew - Challenge #52 - Anything Goes - This is my third and final entry for this fun challenge.

Little Scrap Pieces - Fun Friday Linky Party - I enjoy playing along in the challenge every week.
Have a blessed week, and we will see you all at the Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog.  Happy crafting!
