Hello, Friends!!  I hope this spring is finding you all well!!  It is hard to believe that it is already almost 1.2 way through the month of April, almost a 1/4 of a year already.  Wow, does time fly.  The tulips and daffodils, as well as the flowering trees, are in full bloom here!! Even my daylilies are growing tremendously!!

Today I am popping in to share a card I made using this week's sketch at the Shining the Light challenge.  This is will go to, one of what seems many, that are not feeling well right now and could use a little prayer or a bit of cheer to perk up their day.

I just love the violets from The Lord Has Risen stamp set.  It was fun to color with Copics and fussy cut. The sentiment panel was stamped and then embossed with the Darice Clouds embossing folder.

Verse of the day: Matthew 2537“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Chris- this card will surely brighten anyone's day!! Love the fussy-cut flowers along with the embossing over the sentiment and the new die cut frame (mine is on the way :-)) The colors are gorgeous as well as the stitching- just a perfect card! Thanks for sharing your fabulous talent with all of us- hugs to you, my friend and God Bless!

Chris, This card is really beautiful. I am a big fan of the violets stamp. I used it on several of my Easter cards this year. Great job! Blessings to you, Linda

Oh wow Chris, I have always loved the scriptures you used in your write up (I had to say that it!)
Your card is gorgeous! I love the colors and the papers you used. Love the design on the umbrella and the way you changed your lacey square to a rectangle! Everything is done so beautifully, like always! Love the stitching and pearls as well!

Such a beautiful card Chris but sorry to hear there are people you know who aren't feeling well. Beautiful colours and gorgeous colouring and fussy cutting of the flowers. Love all the layers and beautiful bow with the umbrella too.
