Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Hopefully, you are relaxing and reflecting with family! Here's the last card of the Easter season! It's kind of a simple one! I love this little chick from Inkadinkado! My LSS had a make and take a week ago and used this to deck out some Easter tins. Well, I couldn't resist making a card!

I actually stamped the chick twice - once on the grassy background paper and then one on white. I knew I wanted to cut the chick out, but I didn't want to have to cut out his little curly cue of hair! Too hard! So, that's why I stamped hi twice! I used my rectangle and scalloped rectangle nesties for the mat and background. I used my slot punch to string the ribbon through. Added a sentiment and I was done! The coloring is just watercolor pencil. I did add a bit of bling to the little guy's egg with the help of some Crystal Stickles but you really can't see it!

Over the weekend, my family and I took a walk to this little chapel area by our house. Because of today, I wanted to go over and take some pictures of this beautiful cross that stands nearby. I think the photos turned out really neat and how appropriate for this time of year when we reflect on all we have because of one perfect sacrifice. When I popped my card reader into my computer I was amazed at how blue the sky looks! This is completely untouched! Anyway, I wanted to share a few!

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who
believes in me will live even though he dies;
and whoever lives and believes in me will
never die"
John 11:25-26
Happy Easter...
Until tomorrow...
