Welcome! In light of the true meaning of Easter, we friends of faith have gathered together to celebrate and share the Good News of this Easter season, and we're so glad you've stopped by!
This is indeed a blessed time of year, as we remember Christ's sacrifice on the cross at Calvary and celebrate his triumphant victory over death! Our purpose these 3 days is to draw the attention back to Jesus Christ during this Easter season, just as we did with our Christmas version of "Jesus Is The Reason" hop.
If your first stop was here at my blog, you'll want to start at the beginning over at Heather's blog so you don't miss a thing!
In the United States especially, Easter has become about the bunnies and candy and hunting for colored eggs. And while they are cute and amuse us, they can also distract us from the real cause for celebration: the most amazing event in history - the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
My Easter celebration card features the beautiful cross and sentiment from the Gina K Designs Easter Blessings set, which I clear embossed in Perfect Plum and colored with Copics. The Swiss Dots embossed background panel is sponged with some white craft ink, and a few beautiful paper roses are added for a finishing touch. Cardstock is all Stampin Up! in a spring combo of Certainly Celery and the retired colors Apricot Appeal and Orchid Opulence. (I am still sad that almost all of the SU Soft Subtles are gone.)
While we cannot even begin to reciprocate the Lord's gift to us, there is "blog candy" on some of the hop stops as a token of appreciation for your comments and encouragement!
We also invite you to celebrate the real "Reason for the Season" by posting your own creation celebrating Christ's Resurrection. There is a place to link at the last stop on Catherine's blog, and a prize is up for grabs for one randomly selected card or project.
Your next stop is Karen's delightful blog!
Enjoy the hop and God bless!
