Happy Thursday everybody!
I posted on YouTube yesterday a video of my winnings from a Memory Dex Challenge I was in.
I need to back track and explain . . .
It is my understanding that the idea of a memory dex card came about 3-4 years ago from paper crafting artist, Heidi Swapp. Remember the old days when we used rolodex cards on a spinner to keep track of everybody’s phone numbers and contact information? Well they are back! This time though crafters decorate them and will swap them with other crafters so they can keep each other’s information so they can stay in contact with each other. They are also used for daily devotionals with Bible verses on them, keeping photo memories, and many, many other uses.
I never posted here on my blog the video of the memory dex card I created for Debra’s birthday challenge. The challenge was to create a memory dex card for her to keep using her favorite colors and things. Below is the video of that memory dex card.
Well, there were quite a few people who entered the challenge. I think there were at least 20 people. She did a drawing and there were prizes that we could win. She made beautiful hand sewn totes, bags, and other things. Well, I won 3rd place! Praise the Lord! So, what I won was a pretty zipper bag and I was able to choose the one I wanted. I chose a pretty blue and green one, looks almost like peacock feathers. Below is the video of that.
That is what I received in the mail yesterday. I was so excited to receive it and not only did I get the zipper bag, she sent me some other goodies – stickers and things I can use to embellish cards. She is a very sweet lady who I’m enjoying staying in contact with through You Tube.
I hope you have a blessed Thursday!
THE ULTIMATE PRIZE-
But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you; however, let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.Philippians 3:7-16
