When I read about this challenge I knew right away which stamp set I was going to use. ;D Back for the Easter release, Kelley brought this wonderful stamp set to the table which is called "The Lord has Risen" . This awesome set has been getting lots of use from me. I love this scripture as it is just one more confirmation on what GOD is able to do. Just take a look around and admire all of the trees, the flowers, the sun and the sky...I don't know about you, but I think that this is just amazing!!! Thank you GOD for doing this and making this place a better and more beautiful place. I know without all of this beauty we would be living in a pretty boring place ;D. So with this said, I used the scripture and one of my handmade flowers, some gorgeous Basic Grey paper and that is basically it.....this card was born, LOL!

Have a look

Paper: PTI White, Basic Grey Porcelain, green cs from my stash

Stamps: ODBD The Lord has Risen

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, ODBD Olive

Accessories: Nesties Labels 4 + 11, Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge for the leaf corner and Accent Essentials for the flower, white satin ribbon, Recollections half silver pearls

So, what do you think?

Well, if this is not inspiration enough for you play along in our challenge this week, wait until you see what my Challenge Team Sisters have come up with, you will love it!







All right, this is it for me for today....gotta run, I'll have lots of things to prepare for church tomorrow. We have a District Meeting after our regular service and we have to feed them all, so I will be making sweet potato casserole for A LOT of people today and bake some Pound cakes too ;D.

Have a blessed and very creative day!

Hi Sabrina~

It is Sunday now, and I hope your day at church was as wonderful a blessing for you, as you were for all of the people there. You are really someone wonderful!

Your card is BEAUTIFUL! I Love how the verse looks on that elegant background paper, and those silver pearls...just helps give His word the elegance which the verse deserves! I love the wide white always reminds me of Purity and Truth. (Which reminds me of how Pure His Word taking parts and pieces and coming up with our own answers!)

Sabrina, your work always gets me going on and on...It makes me want to talk about the Lord forever. I wish there was a way for us to talk. We'd be so excited for Him!

Lastly, that flower is flawless. Absolutely Wonderful!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Our power keeps going out, I hope this makes it to you.
