Luke 15:20 “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.”
This is the story of the Prodigal Son… and what a perfect example of the unconditional love our heavenly Father has toward us when we decide to turn back to Him after going our own way. He not only is there waiting for us to come back… but RUNS to us when we take that first step.
Be sure to pop over to SSiC blog to read Peggysue’s wonderful devotional for this week and see all the DT’s cards! Our sponsor is Pizzazz Aplenty with a $10 Gift Pkg. We’re also having a DT CALL right now, through April 20th for those interested *Ü*
The Challenge: Make a card with motion, or an interactive card (spinner, viewmaster, pop up, slider, gel, etc.) There are lots of tutorials on SCS here.
I’ve made a Sliding Pop Up card with this adorable Strawberry Shortcake Bear SVG from Paper Crafting World and entering this into their challenge #79 going on right now which is ... MAKE US LAUGH! (pun on berries... berry sweet friend)
When you pull that green tab on the bottom of the card, the back of the card (and bear) will pop up to reveal a hidden message!!
The bear is put together with pop dots and I used a piece of heavy acetate for the tab that she’s taped to so it doesn’t show behind her.

UPDATE ON LEAH
For those who’ve been praying for 6 yr. old Leah, I received this update from Jerusha this past week. Sorry it’s taken me a few days to post this…
“I have just heard from Leah's mom and she is off the ventilator now. She has no brain damage at all and is able to speak as she had before... bossy, as usual! Hehe. She is still on dialysis and they are unsure of the kidney function at this point. Also, she is unable to walk as the infection was into her muscles. She is working with a therapist to be able to walk again. Yesterday she had no dialysis for four hours which is a huge improvement!! The doctors at the hospital have said that in the run of a year, there are usually only about 3 or 4 children that are saved that were at the point of death, and Leah is one of them. It was truly and completely a miracle. Thank you so much for your prayers!!”
Praise God for the miracles He’s already given this family!!
Leah also has 3 brothers so please keep the whole family in your prayers.
If you’d like to send Leah a card, (or her parents or brothers), please email me at krisb33 AT yahoo DOT com for her mailing address. Thanks Jerusha for updates!!
