|My first shaker card!|
Good morning! Today is Sunday and the beginning of a new week and new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ! You may visit our blog to read today's devotional written by my friend, Peggysue, and view the wonderful and creative DT submissions for this week's challenge.
Today's verse is:
So he got up and went to his father. "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
Today's challenge: Make a card with motion, or an interactive card; spinner, viewmaster, pop up, slider, gel, etc.
This week's prize sponsors is a 10.00 valued gift package from Pizzazz Aplenty!!
Can you believe I have never made a shaker card? Since it is spring, and I have had this adorable stamp for a long time and not used it, I decided this might be the best time to try it out. The oval frame was an aha! moment when I realized it made into the shape of an egg, so this is great for an Easter card as well. I added pink seed beads because that is what I had, and I didn't want to go buy anything. They look so pretty in real life, all springy and remind me of that pink Easter grass found in Easter baskets now.
I still like to give our daughters an Easter card and some type of Easter basket, even though they are grown up. Sometimes I think they are embarrassed because they are too "old" for that, and it is always a challenge due to the forever dieting. But some friends have recently encouraged me not to stop...so I need to get to making one soon!!
Do any of you do Easter baskets and if so, what do you like to put in them?
I have a little project that I finished up today of something I am going to add to their baskets...so stay tuned!
I am looking forward to reading today's devotional and worship at church tomorrow.
This week is very full in anticipation and celebration of Easter Sunday! I wish all of you a blessed week as you consider the sacrifice Christ made on our behalf on the cross. It is the pivotal point of history that separates Christianity from every other religion.
