Happy Tuesday evening......

friends!!! Hope you all had a wonderful sunny Tuesday. Can you believe that we hit the 90's today? I was just telling my hubby, if this temperature stays like this I'll have to turn the A/C on!!! Remember, I've told you all yesterday that I have another card for you all? Well, here it is. It actually fits two challenges. I made it for the OCC (Our Creative Corner) challenge that my German friend Silke is hosting this month and for the BVC09 over at SCS. She asked to use your favorite Easter themed stamp. Well, I don't have any bunny stamps or Easter egg stamps and I did not really have any other Easter themed stamps as well. So I thought! I had ordered a stamp sheet from Clear Dollar Stamps and it happens to have Luke 24:6 on it as well. For those of you that are not familiar with this scripture it reads as follows "He is not here but is Risen". How powerful is that? It for sure reminds you what Easter is all about. For this card I got to use some more of my DCWV mat stack La Creme and some cute little Prima paper roses I found at Michael's last week. They had just the right color for this yummy paper and the ribbon which I bought just to buy it ;P at Big Lots, the card came together rather quick. I've tried to tie the ribbon so it would look like a cross, since this is where Jesus died. To make the paper pop a little more I added a black mat and it sure did the trick. To top it off I also cut a label with my Home Accent cartridge for my Cricut Expression . The scripture stamp is not very large, so I was able to cut the label at 1" and it worked just great. Have a look and please, let me know what you think.

He is not here......

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, True Black, DCWV La Creme
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
Stamp: Luke 24:6 from Clear Dollar Stamps
Accessories: Prima paper roses , Kaiser black half pearls, Cricut Expression and the Home Accent cartridge label cut at 1", Satin ribbon from Big Lots, dimensionals

Did you have a look? Does the way I added the ribbon look like a cross to you (maybe just a little :D:D)?

Well, it is almost 6:30 PM and I have to get the dishes done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. You all enjoy the rest of Tuesday whatever is left of it and I hope to have a little something for you all maybe tomorrow.
