Sweet Baby Heart Box

Good morning!  It’s time for another Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge for this week!  Our hostess is Lovely Linda and her Scripture choice is Phillipians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”  I encourage you to hop over to the DT blog to read her devotional. 

This week’s challenge:  Create a card/project true to your style - show us who you really are!

Oh boy!!  I was at a total loss when I read what the challenge was.  I thought, “Do I even have a ‘signature style’?”  I love both cutesy & elegant, & I love buttons, and pearls, flower soft and crocheted lace, twine, machine stitching, and use of Scripture in my projects… so I combined them all to make another heart-shaped ‘treasure’ box… this time for a baby! 

I also wanted to participate in this week’s Word Art Wednesday challenge which is to use this verse from I Samuel 1:27.  I printed the free digi art given, but it covered up too much of my DP, so I retyped it smaller.  The baby girl image is from Digi Doodle Shop, and their challenge is anything goes!  And the sheep is from the Critter Tops set from Doodle Pantry.
