Hello Dear Reader,

Just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter!  For me this is a wonderful occasion to celebrate.  In my Catholic faith, this is what it all boils down to.  Jesus dying on the cross, and 3 days later rising from the dead to be our Saviour.  And boy, do I need to be saved!   If you don’t know who Jesus Christ is, or just have not been giving him the time of the day, look him up, it might just be that missing piece of the puzzle that will make your life complete. 

Be Glad for He is Risen!

 

Elegant Valentine’s Day Card February 13, 2009

Hi Crafters,

Just wanted to share this beautiful V-day card with you.  I custom made it for a dear friend, who also happens to be my best customer.  He is going to give his lovely wife.  This card was CASEd (here to mean: Copy and Selectively Edit) from a SCS member, at the following link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1075352

I really admired the uniqueness of this card when I saw it.  Hope you like my rendition of it.

Forever tag is from The Happy Hammer; silver brads from Making Memories; embossing, hearts, key, corners done with  the Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine; sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! (SU)Elegant Greetings set; Cranberry Crisp Ink pad from SU; Corners punched with my SU  1/4″  circle punch (I don’t have a ticket corner punch, so I use the V mark that is seen right  when the paper is inserted.)Rhinestones (Joann’s); glue dots and dimensionals also used. Silver string was salvaged from a gift set.

Measurements in inches:

Light Pink Cardstock (CS): 6×12 scored at 6 and 9; 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 (you will need to vary this depending on the size of sentiment you are using)
