Scripture Series: Where Your Treasure Is Pocket Card---It's time for Another Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Hi there, fellas!  It's midweek and guess what?  It's time for another inspirational Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  I am blessed to highlight God's Word in my creations because I am able to get the scriptures that transformed my life to the reality of the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus shared to those who want to know Him in a personal and intimate way.  The Bible says,"Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).  The Bible is God's instruction to all of us and from Genesis to Revelation, it speaks about God's plan to restore humanity after  it's fall...It's all about Jesus and the Father's great love for us all.  

Anyway, just want to share with you the card I made featuring the free Word Art (Matthew 6:21) that is available for your download.  Just visit the Word Art Wednesday Blog and you can avail of this freebie.  You can use it in your projects and then, linked it up in our Challenge.  It's not mandatory to use the Word Art to join...If you have any creation with uplifting message, you are most welcome to join the fun.  We have great prizes available for the winner.  We are sponsored this week by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps so, here's my card highlighting one of our sponsor's images.  This one is called "A Little Birdie Told Me,"  which I colored with my ProMarker and Prismacolor markers.  For the base card, I tried using a lunch bag...yes, a LUNCH BAG!  I've seen a few projects that used it for mini albums but since I don't have the time to make one, I decided I will try a card.  it worked so well because the pocket that was created can be used to tuck in photos, tags, Bible verses or even a gift card...Awesome! It took a while to create because I had to mat everything to reinforce the card.  I used 2 DP's from K & Company and the Cloud DP is from my stash.  I added a red satin ribbon, shiny gems, a red crochet flower (I made and sell), gold glitters (Stickles) in the center of the flowers and a gold brad.  The "love sentiment" is a clear border stamp from Fiskars and the "Memories" sentiment is from Paper Studio. I also inked some of the panel's edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink---Walnut Stain.  Finally, I stitch all over this card...This came out bigger and bulkier than my usual cards and measured approximately 6.75-inch square so, I had to make an envelope-box that is .75-inch thick and nearly 7-inch square.  It took me sometime but this card looks wonderful.

WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS POCKET CARD WITH ENVELOPE-BOX:

 I remember as a child being taught the verse in Luke 10:27a which says " “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind."  Although the religion I grew up with mentioned this from time to time, I didn't fully understand what this was all about till I entered into an intimate relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  He was the perfect example of this verse---how He loved the Father and obeyed His Will till His death on the Cross that when He rose again, He was given all power and authority which He then delegated to those who put their faith in Him.  Jesus' "TREASURE" is His Oneness with the Father and that wonderful relationship sustained Him even through temptation, pain and death.  So, what do we consider treasures in this life?  Is it your career, your status, power, good looks, wealth, just to name a few?  The Bible says in Luke 21:33, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away."  This means that everything that man values in this earth will end and when it's time to leave this place, we cannot take anything so, I encourage you to place your heart in treasures that will not be destroyed---not temporary but eternal!  Jesus has the Words of Life.  Come to Him!
