Happy Easter: Hebrews 12:2-3

He is risen, what a Joyful day!  I am so glad that you  could join us for a challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!


This week it is Traci who is our challenge hostess and she chose Hebrews 12:2-3 . Be sure to read her devotion on our home page.


"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."



I do believe that this card says it all - and I know that Traci has a wonderful message on our home page to share with all of you.

This was a quick card using a stamp set that I have had for a while called Christ is Risen. I did try a new technique for this card - I used a distressing embossing powder on the cross, it created a very different look. I used a sketch from JUGS.

The challenge this week is; Make a joy-ful card; something celebratory! I wanted to make 2 cards - the one I did make and another fun card but time just got away from me.

This week's sponsor is Paper Pretties with 6, yes I said 6, digital images. 

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments and have a wonderful week surrounded with God's love.

Oh, Miesje! This is such a beautifully appropriate Easter card. I just LOVE it in every way. It looks so super "religious". I don't know why - I guess the cross just stands out SO strong. It's VERY lovely. Thanks for linking it up and playing along with us at Word Art Wednesday. You are a blessing and an encouragement, and we hope you will play each week. Thanks again!
