We had such a fantastic service at church on Sunday. Our worship team was just superb. We did something really different for one part of the service today.
A woman in our congregation, who happens to be an artist, did a painting during one of the songs. The painting was related to a scripture from Revelation 22 1:7. This scripture refers to the river of life and the tree of life.
She did this outstanding painting depicting this theme. As she painted the scripture was read. Then our worship team started playing. It was such an incredible experience for our Easter service.
We had dinner here at my home and my husband's family + a young couple from church joined us. I was very pleased with how my meal turned out.
I made a ham and basted it with a new glaze recipe I found. For the glaze I used brown sugar, real maple syrup and Dijon mustard.
Then with the leftover glaze, I added crushed pineapple & cornstarch and heated it until it thickened. I served it with the ham. I loved the taste and so did my guests.
We also had a potato & cheese casserole, asparagus with mushrooms in a vinaigrette sauce, carrots with a brown sugar glaze and a fresh fruit salad.
Our dessert was carrot cake. It was all yummy and we even had leftovers for dinner tonight.
color challenge #370 on Splitcoaststampers.
I am the hostess again this week and I chose the colors of tangerine tango, daffodil delight and old olive. Since this is such a bright color palette, I chose to use a daffodil image.
The image is a soon to be released set from Marks Finest Papers - "daffodil greetings". I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.
I cut it out with an oval Spellbinders die. My background designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "attic boutique" collection. The middle rectangle panels are old olive designer paper. On the longest rectangle layer, I added a scallop border in tangerine tango.

The challenge over there is to pick one of the older sketches for your card. It's their 3rd anniversary celebration. I left off a sentiment because I am not sure how I will be using this yet.
Well, that's it for me. So until next time........God bless.
