I was asked to represent Simon Says Stamp for another challenge at the Stamping Sisters in Christ challenge blog and again, I am HONOURED to! This time of year makes me thankful for what I have and count my blessings. One thing I am very blessed with is to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp family. Their kindness & generosity fills my heart!!!! Simon Says is sponsoring their challenges once a month, so if you want to win some GREAT prizes head on over to the blog to check it out!!!!

The scripture this week is from Matthew 6:21, which reads "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Kristine gives a really great reflection on the entire scripture reading about storing up our treasures in heaven. You should go check it out!!!!

Sooooo, the CHALLENGE this week set by Kristine, is to use crafty "treasures" on your card or other project... in other words, BLING IT UP! (ie. bling = gems, pearls, dazzling diamonds, charms, etc.) I have used rhinestones, a charm, shimmery ribbon, silver cord, and a whole lotta stickles!!!! I hope it is "BLINGY" enough!!! LOL This House Mouse stamp can be purchased at Simon Says Stamp, as are the Nestabilities, the rhinestones, the stickles, and the charms.

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you have a great weekend!!! Only 1 more week until Christmas!!!!
