Jesus Loves the Little Children

Happy Sunday, and Happy Independence Day to all my American friends out there!! What a great day this is... a time to celebrate the Lord's Day and our nation's independence all at once.

In the past when the 4th fell on a Sunday, our town would have it's festivities on Saturday, but this year, since we are also celebrating our town's Centennial, we are having a community worship service in the park today followed by our parade and lots of fun events and food courts in the park. It's actually a 2-day event which started yesterday with hot air balloons, an old time car show, ugliest/cutest dog contest, heritage booths and the fireman's dunk tank in the park. Then of course a big fireworks show tonight! We'll be going to my parents later today for a BBQ and then watching the show out on their front lawn. They are on a hill so we have a nice view while we sit in lawn chairs, or the kids will sit on a blanket on the grass and eat popcorn.

Anyway, I don't have a patriotic card to show today... however I have a wonderful short story about this card I made. Last Sunday I posted a devotional here on my blog and Sue of McMahon Five Designs was very touched by it that she was inspired to do what she can to help spread the Good News too... so she drew this wonderful digi of Jesus and a little boy!! She also made it available with or without the scenery in the background. Isn't it sweet?! I love it!! She also drew THIS ONE, and they are both available in the shop right now.

All the supplies used on this card is from M5D.

I don't have too many embellishments on this one, but they also have tons of floral and pearl embellishements in stock as well! If you haven't signed up for the M5D Newsletter, I urge you to do so because they have sale codes and contests listed in there for subscribers only!

Right now we're having a "Mystery Designer Contest" where anyone could win one of FIVE PRIZE PACKAGES!! If you missed my post, please see HERE. Have FUN!!
