Happy Easter!

While it’s nice to support a challenge blog and win a stamp set or some agape love and a blinkie, Grace, I’m actually here for the discipline. When Patti G. stopped by at my blog and said howdy, she was an answer to my prayer, because of her involvement with SSA. Frankly, while I was recooping from my back injury, I wasn’t motivated to do much designing! One day in my prayer time, I was crying out to the Lord for a Christian artists group to join. I wanted to keep designing, learning new skills and techniques that reflect the love I have for the Lord. I’ve collected some inspirational stamps over the years, but have never really put them to use. You at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ are challenging me every week. Thank you.
This week’s challenge was to use different hues of purple and something wooden. While I didn’t have wood paper, I did have a self adhesive faux cork liner paper in a roll by Kittrich (Magic Cover, O4F-18FA01-01) which looked like wood to make my cross in the background. The believe stamp is by Inkadinkado and the banner stamp is by Stamparril.
Hope all my Sisters in Christ have a Blessed Happy Easter!


  1. Awwww...thanks Dolores! I'm glad that I stopped by! It's been nice having a Missouri friend :) Great card, and you are right - that cork looks like wood! lol...I almost thanked you for joining the challenge.....old habits are hard to undo! Have a great weekend!

  2. Very nice Easter card. Great symbols. Thanks so much for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ.

  3. Oh my goodness, your words brought a tear to my eye! God is so good, and leads us to exactly where He wants us, places people in our lives at just the right time... with Him... there are no mistakes! I'm so glad you found SSIC! We love your work and love how you let your light shine for our Lord and Savior! Your card is beautiful, and full of meaning!!! The cork works perfectly for the cross and I love all the different elements you have added! Beautiful! I wish you a most blessed Easter!!!

  4. Hi there! I ditto what Grace said... God knows your needs before you do and He places people in our lives when we need them the most. Praise God for the SSIC ministry, and praise the Lord for YOU too as you are just as much a blessing to us, to read your words and testimony. Thanks for joining us in our challenge this week!! Your card is beautiful, and that cork cross is PERFECT for this challenge. Have a lovely Palm Sunday tomorrow =)

  5. HA! I just joined your followers and noticed your title "CHEERLEADING SQUAD" - How CUTE, love that!! =)

  6. Dolores, I too have found the Stampin' Sisters to be an answer to my heart's cry for faith, fellowship and shared interests. I'm so glad God has blessed you in the same way! And this card of yours! What a graphic representation of all that Jesus is. Very well done!
