  I'm also entering this card in the Wee Memories Challenge #3.  That challenge is to use flowers on your card/project.  The prize for this challenge is a $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp.  Whoohoo!!  There are a ton of stamping supplies over there, so make sure you enter this one:)

Let's Get Scrappy with Soft Hues, Flowers and Ribbon!!

Good Afternoon!!  I have a card here that I made for 2 challenges.  The first one is for La La Land Challenge # 34.  The challenge for us is to use SCRAPSAnything we have laying around.  Maybe on our craft tables or piled up in bins and boxes.  For my card, I used scraps leftover from the card to make my flower and a little scrap piece of ribbon.  The dp is from K&Co. called 'hopscotch'.  Very pretty and soft colors in that stack. 
 Also, one player will WIN a $10 Credit towards any rubber stamps of your choice in the La-La Land Crafts store!!  Oh ya, you simply must  go over and take a look at the new releases.  They are so adorable:) 

The 2nd challenge is for the Tuesday Morning Sketches #41.  Melissa has a recipe for us to follow this week instead of a sketch.  The recipe is....Soft hues, flowers, and ribbon.  Easy enough.  I used some soft pink ribbon and made my flower using the SU flower punch with 2 buttons in the center.  One lucky winner will win 3-5 images from Doodle Palace and they have some real cute images over there.  Isn't that great!!  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Have a great week:)

SSCC # 33 - John 3:16 & an Easter Poem

Good Morning!  Happy Easter to you all:)  Today is another weekly challenge inspired by scripture over at Stampin Sisters In Christ.  I have the honor of hosting this week. 

 The verse I have chosen is one that most of us will recognize, in fact it was the first verse I memorized.  It is John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."  What an awsome verse for Easter.  Knowing that God loves us so much he gave his life for us.  How he died up there on the cross for us so we can have life. 

  My challenge for you this week is to make a card/project using the word LOVE or something that symbolizes love to you.

  Our sponsor this week is Inktegrity - digital stamps by Joni.  There are some really cute images there.  In fact I've used one of them on my first card.  It's called 'out on a limb'. 

Out on a Limb

This card is made with the digi image from Inktegrity.  I love this little cutey.  I used some daisy dp I had and some ribbon to add some color.  I added the sentiment around the circle, it says "Love is in the Air".

And this is my second card for today.  It's a bit more for Easter. 
He Is Risen!!

For this card, I used the Easter Cross from McMahon Five Designs .  There are some really cute Easter and Spring digis over at the store.  So stop on by and show some love. Sue would appreciate it.   If you're not into the cutesy then there are a lot of pretty and elegant flowers for you.  There's something for everyone.  I know you'll find something:)  
Lastly, I would like to share a poem I found.  It tells the story of the Ressurection of Jesus Christ and how Mary felt watching her son die on the Cross.  (Just a warning....it's a tear jerker)
The Pain That Mary Felt

Can you imagine the pain

That Mary must have felt,

As her child hung on the cross that day;

The agony that filled her soul,

The tears that flowed,

Their decision she could not sway?

A Mother's love for her child

Is such a strong part of her life,

Like an extension of herself.

Every breath the child breathes,

Every tender hug and kiss,

Not one memory every leaves.

So, for Mary to witness

Such a scene

Was probably more than she could bear.

She must have cried out,

Don't you know that's 'my child'

Hanging there?

God knew the agony

That Mary would feel,

On that fateful day,

For He himself felt

That same agony

As His Child hung that way!

"Crucify Him" they chanted,

Not knowing what lay ahead.

They didn't realize that

He was their Saviour,

Until He, too, was dead.

But, one bright and glorious morning,

They checked the grave where Jesus lay.

The tomb was empty,

The rock had been rolled away.

Jesus had RISEN that day!

Mary had lost a Son,

But the World gained a Saviour

On Resurrection Day.

This poem was written by Barbara Sanders

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!  Have a wonderful Easter:)

KLSNS - Boxes n Baskets

Easter Basket KLSNS

Good afternoon!  Easter is getting closer and closer:)  KLSNS new challenge is for us to make a box or basket.  The hostess is Kristine.   So I have made a simple Easter basket that my sister taught me how to do.  I would link to it but I'm not sure where to find it.  Maybe I should ask my sis and get back on that.  Anyway, I added a handle and put some Easter grass in it so it's techniquely an Easter basket.  LOL!!  I then added an Easter bunny from La La Land's new spring release.  (It's also available in digi form).   Then put on some embellies I had from a previous project.  I so hope you enjoy!!  Happy Easter everyone.
