Matthew 6:33

Tonight we went to church and we are studying the book of Matthew. I have also been reading to my family from the One-Year Bible. This is the passage that we read tonight. I think God might be trying to teach me a lesson. What might it be? Maybe I need to be thankful for what I have and not try to control my life, because it's really God who's in control, and He provides for my needs.

On a different note, my hubby taught me how to make an excel spread sheet to catalog my stamp sets. I've been working on that today. That way, when I need to find a specific image or sentiment, I can just do a simple search on the computer instead of searching through my 200+ stamp sets! (God might be trying to teach me to simplify too! I have too much stuff.)

I made this card for these challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches
Color Throwdown
Simon Says - Ice Inspiration
OWH Midweek Throwdown - Chalkboard
Word Art Wednesday - Matthew 6:33

I'm not sure if you're allowed to make a chalkboard card on Kraft paper instead of black, but I did, and I like the outcome, especially once I put the glitter gel on.

Materials used:
Cardstock: white, Kraft
B&Ts: Dreamin'
Stamps: Single Snowflake, free word art from WAW (not CTMH)
Ink: VersaMark, White Daisy
Other: White Embossing Powder, Glitz Glitter Gel - Bronze, Blue, Almond, & Stardust
