Gotta be quick

cos I'm running behind (again)
So straight on with the crafting!
This week on Salt Stacy challenged us to think about Attitude. I was obviously still in St David's Day mode as well as continuing to reflect on the Sermon on the Mount as the two things came together. I thought about how important it was to wear my heritage as a child and how I should always wear the attitude of faith today. I've never taking the Beatitudes and turned them into attitudes before but it has really given me a lot to think about. Although i don't really like how the layout turned out I do like the thought behind it! It is based on a Shimelle sketch

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzil - cream and blue swiss dot; Papers: October Afternoon; Glimmer Mist: Olive; Stamps: Purple Onion and Banana Frog; Thickers: American Crafts; Dies: Nestabilities
And then there is Daring Cards - we are in March - yip! and so the flower of the Month is Daffodils. (I am ashamed to admit I don't really like daffs - I'm more of a tulip girl meself). I used a sketch that I made whilst browsing through some Cards mags in Imagine That so I can't tell you whose card I have lifted.
I made the daffs using the retro flower large punch and cutting a petite scallop circle and snipping a quarter out of it. The gems are the same Poundland ones as last week coloured with a sharpie pen.
Other materials: Cardbase: Craft Creations; Papers: Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon and Crate Paper; Stamp: Imagine That; Distress Inks: Wild Honey and Peeled Paint

This Sunday is finally the last one before Lent - we don't normally have such a long lead in! So we will be thinking about Jesus on the mountaintop being seen in all his glory. It is a strange and wonderful story. I think what it means is that it is one of the times that we can see that Jesus is more than just an extraordinary human being and that whatever happens - we should listen to him. Lets hope I can share that with the congregation on Sunday! Because I now sometimes have two services on a Sunday morning (but don't this week) I can attend my Romford Church where the Junior Church have been working hard at worship that they are going to lead us in. I'm looking forward to being fed!

The LO is fab - don't you look cute in those photos? awww bless!
Love the way you've made the daffodils and how even though there are several patterns and colours the whole thing still looks so clean and crisp

Da iawn ti! Lovely layout Lythan, it is a bit different from some of your other work, nice to try something new! My little Ethan went to school in his costume and did sung his welsh song and did a recitation in the school Eisteddfod.

Tulips for me too! I used to have a little doll when I was younger (a lot) which came from Wales and was in the traditional dress. I never liked to take it out of the plastic tube that it came in as I thought it was so pretty. I think it was the lace that did it for me!

I love your take on the Salt challenge and also your lovely cheery daffodil card for DCM. x
