Daisy Daisy on Maundy Thursday

Hi there 

Well here we are on Maundy Thursday

Info taken from the web 

"also known as Holy ThursdayCovenant ThursdayGreat and Holy ThursdaySheer Thursday, and Thursday of Mysteries, among other names,
 is the Christian holy day falling on the Thursday before Easter

It commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles as described in the Canonical gospels.

 It is the fifth day of Holy Week, and is preceded by Holy Wednesday and followed by Good Friday" 

All I can say it is strange how the dates of Easter always change.....

There are celebrations in the UK of 

"Maundy Thursday celebrations in the United Kingdom (also called Royal Maundy) today involve the Monarch offering "alms" to deserving senior citizens, one man and one woman for each year of the sovereign's age. These coins, known as Maundy money or Royal Maundy, are distributed in red and white purses, and is a custom dating back to King Edward I. The red purse contains regular currency and is given in place of food and clothing; the white purse has money in the amount of one penny for each year of the Sovereign's age. Since 1822, rather than ordinary money, the Sovereign gives out Maundy coins,which are specially minted 1, 2, 3 and 4 penny pieces, and are legal tender. The service at which this takes place rotates around English and Welsh churches, though in 2008 it took place for the first time in Northern Ireland at Armagh Cathedral. Until the death of King James II, the Monarch would also wash the feet of the selected poor people"

So now we know .....

Back to my project for today

I have used Sherif Artist to make my card to print out. 

I have used the CD Owl Forest and Daisy Trail Bright Blooms 

I have added the verse for the Craft Barn Challenge and added extra daisies 
around the verse. I so like this new form of crafting for me 
and I really must do more. 

Think it is enjoyable as I have been so use to using Digi programmes for my 

I have made this scrapbook page for

Thank you for your visit today

and I hope you have a good day.
