Happy Easter Everyone!!! I am so excited to have been asked to become a part of the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!! What better time to begin this challenge than on Easter, Right?!!!!!

Today's challenge is hosted by the dear and inspiring Kathy Winters!! The verse she has chosen for this week is so appropriate for today!! It is John 3:16: "For God so loved the world , that he gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life." Isn't that what Easter is all about? What greater love did He have then to lay down His life for us!! What a comfort!! This is not only appropriate for Easter but it is very comforting as well.

Some dear friends of ours lost their 16 year old suddenly a couple of days ago and the cause is still yet unknown. As my dear friend said to me. How does some one who lacks this faith survive such a tragedy. I am having such a hard time but atleast I have the faith to know my son is in a better place and that I will see him again. How true. What a comfort!! What love!!

Kathy's challenge this week is: Somewhere on your card or project have the word "Love" or something that symbolizes Love to you.

The sponsor this week is Inktegrity... "digital images that embrace the goodness in life" created by Joni Wilson who is well known and loved in the crafting world. The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Inktegrity! Thank you Joni!!!

Here is my take on this challenge:

For my creation I used the Labels 9, flourish accents, lattice border and cross spellbinders as well as the Flourished Christian Symbols and Love stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. The dp is from Bella Bleu at SU. I added some gold bauble, Zva Creative Pearls and made a border with the MS Flower Border punch.

Thanks for stopping by...For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
Candace , Grace , Kathy, Kristine , Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi

If you should create a card or project for this challenge, please leave a direct link here. Should you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword SSIC33.

Have a blessed Easter!!

Hi Chris,
This is a beautiful card and as you say so appropriate for this time.
I am so sorry to hear of your friends loss. I shal be praying for her and her family at this sad time. There is a verse of a hymn that always comes to mind at times like this:

"We expect a bright tomorrow
All will be well
Faith can sing through days of sorrow
All all is well
We are on His love relying
Jesus every need supplying
If in living or in dying
All must be well"
