Happy Easter!

Today we celebrate Easter... the day our Lord and Savior rose from the grave. I made one more Easter card from a sample I started when I taught the Spring Fold/Double Diamond Fold card class a couple weeks ago.

The image is a TAC stamp from a set called He Is Risen.  I colored with Copics.

I added some Stardust Clear Gel pen on Jesus' halo and radiance.

I was lacking enough purple to totally frame the text so I just framed the ends.  I like how this turned out!

John 20: 1 -9

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.  She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved.  She said," They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put Him!"

Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb.  They were both running, but the  other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.  He stooped and looked in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he didn't go in. Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside.  He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings.  Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed - for until then they still hadn't understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead. 

May God bless you today!  And may He give you a renewed sense of His awesome power, love, grace, and mercy!
