OK- well, here's the deal- Last Sunday in Church they preached on Matt. 25 and the “parable of the talents”. At the end of the service they gave each person (who wanted to participate in a stewardship challenge) a $100 bill with this assignment – over the next three months, take this talent ($100) and see if you can multiply it for the Lord. At the end of the service they gave away over $16,000! We were encouraged to be creative and work hard with “the Masters” money.
SO---long story short, I offered to make these ASK frames and sell them for $12 each (all money going to the church) - said I would individualize if they wanted. Well this one is for a man and just doesn't seem nearly as good as the original! What have I gotten myself into?....I'd love opinions, and suggestions!

I think it is absolutely wonderful - what a creative way of using the money to give back to the Lord. I am sure each one you make will be a blessing to you and to those who receive it. One of the reasons I love Stamping so much is that I can be praying for the person who will receive my card as I make it. It's a blessing I receive.

I think that this is really nice, I don't see ANYTHING wrong with it. Don't be so hard on your self. What a neat thing to do. I will pray that the Lord uses your talent and that He multiiplys your money. TFS

Don't be so hard on yourself! This is lovely and you made it so appropriate for a man's domain! Don't let the Evil One hinder your joy in doing the Lord's work! You've done a great job. I only hope I can do half as well when I case it!
