Sunny Saturday

I got up (what I thought was) early this Sunny Saturday only to learn that all three of my children were out doing God's Work while I slept in.  All three of my kids (one at college and two here in town) went out door-knocking to hand out Easter tracts, share the Good News of Jesus Christ, and invite people to church for Easter.  Shame on me.  Not that I could have gone anyway with this gimpy foot, but it's good to know that my children have such a heart for the Lord.

This card is based on a sketch over at The Create/Northridge Publishing Blog.  I'm sending it to them for their Easter challenge, and also entering it in the following challenges:

I'm going to give this "Easter Memories" card to my Mom and Dad.  I want them to know that even though I'm grown, I appreciate and miss all those precious childhood memories of Easter.  I will always crave a Fanny Farmer Buttercream Egg.  MMmmmmmm.

Have a blessed Sunny Saturday,
Karen

    1. Thank you, Marion. I have been trying to visit your blog, but Blogger won't open your page for me. It gives me an "error" message. I hope you will consider linking up at Word Art Wednesday. Thanks for all your sweet comments.
      Hugs,
