Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hoping this is finding you all well and having a blessed week! We are celebrating "Resurrection Sunday" this weekend! The world wants to promote bunnies and chocolate eggs but when you think of Easter I hope that you will remember not only the great sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf but also that the tomb where they laid His body is empty, HE IS RISEN!! The hope of eternal life is ours because of what He has done! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
Can you believe it's already mid April? Today is a special day, it's my mom's 79th birthday.
Happy Birthday Mom!
It's also hard to believe that it's already time to share a card for our challenge at Word Art Wednesday! Here is my card for this weeks Anything Goes - Family friendly challenge:
Here are the ingredients:
Stamps - Taylored Expressions Calla Lily Bouquet and Easter Joy
Card Stock: Desert Storm, gold (my stash, I can only assume its Bazzill) and bright white (Neenah)
I colored the calla Lily with Copics and the green background was done by using a blending tool and Distress Oxide Peeled Paint on a diecut (Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle) piece of Neenah Desert Storm. It's hard to see the effects of the technique but I started at one end and blended the ink on about 3/4 of the card stock, the lighter end is behind the calla lily. I also spritzed some water on the panel to cause it to activate and lift color. It just adds a look of texture to it (it looks better in person), then I stamped the sentiment "Rejoicing with you this Easter" in Archival Jet Black ink.
The Word Art is John 12:23 and printed on Vellum. I fussy cut out the vase and calla lilies and popped them up with dimensional adhesive. I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh (sweet pea mix)
Please join us at Word Art Wednesday, we have some great sponsors each challenge and you can link up 5 new projects and share your talent with all of us!!
Resurrection Sunday is the epitome of hope and the strong message that truth will always triumph over the evil. In our scripture art today it says: Jesus answered them saying "The hour is come, that the Son of Man should be glorified." (John 12:23).
The hour is come - many times it is recorded that Jesus said His time was not yet come. But finally it was time, perfectly on time according to all the prophecies concerning Him. He was the perfect Lamb of God willingly laying down His life for us. Oh my goodness all the types and shadows in the Word that point to Jesus and the redemptive work He would do, it's all spelled out if we are willing to believe. I encourage you to read the Bible with eyes and a heart filled with believing that Jesus was and is exactly who He said He was: the Savior of the world, God in the flesh, Emmanuel (God with us).
"Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2: 9-11
Have a blessed week!! Thanks for visiting.
