Easter Musings

Happy Monday everyone!

Holy Week was always a special time in my family.  My Mom and Dad taught us to observe this week in quiet reflection -well, ask quiet as seven siblings could. We were encouraged to think about the sacrifice our Lord made for us, we could not listen to music and could only watch religious programs on TV. As a child Easter Sunday was our favorite day. We got all dressed up in our new Easter clothes; suits and ties for the boys, pretty dresses with big bows and bonnets for the girls. And off we went to Easter Mass then to visit family. Now as adults, Easter Sunday is still one of our favorite days. In a more relaxed setting, our family gathers for an Easter brunch to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and new Life in Him, the Center of our Faith.

Now to my card. Over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog, Sean is hosting this week's Spring into Spring challenge. We are to make a spring themed card using at least 3 bright spring colors and to make our own designer paper with our stamps. The colors I chose are from Gina K's Petals & Wings cardstock assortment: Lemon Drop, Jellybean Green and Bubblegum Pink -so Eastery! The stamps I used to make the designer paper are Latina Crafter's Solo porque set. The sentiment is from Crafter's Companion stamped on Vellum this way you can still see the pretty designer paper.

Here's a close up of one of the corners:

That's all for me, until next time. Have a wonderful week and an even better Easter. Blessings and hugz to all. Thanks for stopping by.
