Hello Friends!!  I hope all is well!!!  The weather appears to be changing more to Spring, although it seems to be going back and forth between warm and sunny to cloudy and cold!  What a tease!!
It is hard to believe that in a little over a week it will be Easter!! 

Today I am popping in to share a card I created for the Shining the Light challenge at ODBD which is an Inspiration!!

I originally made a totally different creation for this challenge but decided to share this one instead.  I took my inspiration from the scripture, the flowers, and the layout of the first picture in the inspiration.  It is had to see since it is so faint but I stamped a green cross from Cross with Vines on my Neenah white paper and then used my stamping of the verse on vellum to make it more soft and subtle.  It did not want the cross to interfere with my verse.

Our Daily Bread Designs, Cross with Vines, God Verses,Aster, Fancy Foliage, Vintage Flourish Pattern, Spellbinders Labels 25, Designed by Chris Olsen, Twinkles Glow With stamps, Chisel Ink N More on Etsy, Phoenix turned pen

ODBD Stamps Used: Cross with Vines, God Verses

The Pen was turned by my hubby and that is available in our Etsy Store Chisel Ink n More.  It is a pen called the Phoenix.  You can see more details here.  All proceeds go to a mission trip for this summer for our girls, Nicki and Meghan.

Hello Friends!!

Well last weekend we had ice and snow...Prayerfully the last of it!!  With Easter in less than a month, I am so ready for Spring.  Today I am sharing another card with easter flowers and the sketch for today's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, Let the Earth Rejoice, Basket of Blessings, Faithful Fish Dies, Circle Ornament dies, designed by Chris Olsen, Slimline genuine deer Antler Pen, Chisel Ink n More

The pen pictured above is part of our Esty store designed by my husband.  The proceeds go to our daughter's mission trip. You can see more details here.

Matthew 20: 17-19
17 Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, 
18 "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death 
19 and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!"

While Easter is such a sad time as we think of how we crucified our Lord for our sin, it is such a happy time...a sign of new life for all those who believe!!  It is symbolic that the flowers and beginning of Spring begin since the trees budding with leaves, brown grass turning green and flowers blooming are all symbols of new life!! Thanks be to God for His Unspeakable gift!!

Hello Friends!! I hope all is well!!  I hope you are all warm and safe....a couple more weeks until it is Spring here (at least by date).  Only one month until Easter!!  I am so ready not only for Spring flowers and the warmer weather.  We have had so much snow in the last few weeks.

As we approach Easter, I know I reflect on how blessed I am to have a Savior who gave His life for me not for my works but by grace alone I am saved because I believe and have faith  and trust in Him.  If it were for works, I would be sunk!!!  I am by no means perfect.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son.  John 3:16

Today's card uses the colors for the color challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs which is pastels.  I went with the light blue, light purple, and green.  My colors are a tad bit brighter but that was the closest I could get.
