Happy Easter!

Happy Easter my friends!! Hallelujah!! He has Risen!!
We will be celebrating Easter with my DH's family today and I hope you all have a day filled with Blessings. I, for one, count myself blessed beyond words as I reflect on the significance of Christ's resurrection

I know this card is secular, but Easter eggs are a fun memory of mine: decorating, hiding, finding. Although we like to focus on Christ's resurrection, we also have fun playing games, such as finding eggs. So this card is a celebration of youth. I used a variety of Verve images and dies. The little chick and basket come from the set Chicks Rule, and the eggs and sentiment are from the set Egg-stra Special. The sentiment is framed with A Cut Above Charming Oval Die.

The basket is on a Labels 18 (Spellbinders) base, and is hanging from an Elegant Post (Spellbinders). The doily underneath was made by cutting a Parisian Motif (Spellbinders) diecut piece in half.

That's it from me today. I hope you have a Blessed Easter!!
Happy stamping my friends!!

...and a very Happy Easter to you too, Tosh! Your card is precious with all those wonderful Spellbinder labels and the intricate DPs. The little pearls and embroidery floss bows add a touch of extra sweetness. Your card is just beautiful.

Oh so pretty! Loving all the die cuts too. Happy Easter to you! :D

Too cute! Love the die cuts you used. Have a blessed Easter celebrating the resurrection :) My son is the lead in a God Rod performance in our Easter musical at the church and it is one powerful number! I'm sure I'll be a mess watching it. Such a blessed time of year! Always brings me to tears to think of what Christ has done for me (us). Have a blessed day :)

That's how I feel, too! I like to remember the things from a childs' perspective. I was just thinking how I used to make the Easter baskets for my kids and hide the eggs, etc. Now they're older. I am looking forward to grandkids, so I can do it again! Thanks for sharing your card

Wanda Cullen said...'s a special day to remember Christ's ultimate sacrifice! Your card is beautiful! Now that our kids are all grown...I miss those days of dying and hiding eggs! Will just have to wait for the grandchildren to arrive. LOL!
