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

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.

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!
