Thank You Prayer: Matthew 6:21

Another week has flown by and once again it is time for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This week it is Lovely Linda who challenges us with this verse from Matthew 6:21

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
I love this verse Linda! As you see I chose to make a thank you card - there is a reason for that. I am surrounded by treasures. Tonight, at Mass, I had treasure behind me and next to me. At work, every student is a treasure as are the people I work with. And my family - well - treasures in every way! That is where my heart is! Okay - not always do I look at it that way, but I should. And the thank you is a Thank You to God for the many treasures in my life.

Linda challenges us to use something you treasure on your card - whether it be bling, flowers, something new or have been saving for a long time - show us your treasures!

My card was made using the Angel Anya image from Greeting Farm at Simon Says Stamps. My treasure - well see that gold panel - I have had a small package of the Premium Craft Foil from Spellbinders for a long time and have not used it. This seemed like the one to use it on. I embossed the foil with a Cuttlebug folder. I paper pieced Angel's dress and the bow in her hair and used some liquid pearls on her wings. Gold is something that many people treasure but to me - people are the greatest treasures in my life - including all of you who share your lives with us in "Blogland"! May you all have a wonderful week filed with God's treasures. 

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps with an adorable stamp set.

Oh what a cute image and what great thoughts to start off the day! I have treasures near me when I sit in church as well, and actually the entire congregation is a treasure and we will all celebrate in heaven one day! I am chuckling at how many of us had been saving bits of things that we finally pulled out to use on our cards today, Linda had a great challenge!
