Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Thank you so much for stopping in today! I hope you are having a wonderful day with friends and family. Our family will attend Sunrise Services, Sunday School and Church. We will then get together for an impromptu ham sandwich lunch.  We're a no frills crowd so if you stopped here you would see paper plates and ham on bread, literally!  It's a tradition we started after John and I married several years back.

Before I get to today's card, I would like to share a couple of photos I snapped last Sunday after church services. After lunch, I ran home and grabbed my camera intending to snap a few shots of the apple tree by our church's front office. I started taking photos only to spy this beautiful angel and it's proximity to the blossoms. SO I had to go in and snap a photo... kinda reminds me of the promise of that first Easter morn...

Our tiny church is the oldest Baptist congregation west of the Alleghenies. Located across from our church is the original church lot and graveyard. I spotted this lovely dogwood and noticed the weathered tombstones underneath. Undoubtably some of the first settlers... What stories these Saints could tell...

Today I am playing along with the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge. So here's the sketch...

Thank you for stopping in and be sure to come back as this will be another busy week at Scrappin' Saints.  Cricut fans will be in store for a couple of projects and my stamping friends will have plenty to view this week as well.  Monday, I will have two projects, one for The Shabby Tea Room and another for Exploring Cricut!  It promises to be a great week! 

Today I will leave you with some scripture...

"And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.  And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold two men stood by them in shining garments:  And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?  He is not here, but is risen:  remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.  And they remembered his words, and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest."
