Simple and Fun

Happy Wednesday all! Can you believe this is my 3rd day in a row to post? Yay!

This is a card that was made for March's stamp club. It uses "left over" patterned paper from the Sweet Pea paper pack and a sentiment of choice from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I chose So Saffron Ribbon but really you could use any color that is in this particular set of patterned paper or the patterned paper that you choose to use. I just love how simple this is yet special with the fancy border and bright colors. A fun card to make for sure!

Today is the last day that you can order from the SAB Catalog so if there is anything left in there that you'd like you just need a $50 order and it is yours! E-mail or call me if you have any questions or would like to order!

Did you know this week is Holy Week? It started on Sunday with Palm Sunday which was Jesus' triumphant arrival into Jerusalem. Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday. Then Friday is Good Friday which is the day that Jesus was put to death and every one of our sins was laid upon him. And finally Sunday is Easter. For me Easter is not about the Easter bunny and candy but the day that the resurrection of Jesus is celebrated. It is, without a doubt, my favorite day of the year.

Honestly, this week has been hard for me...Friday is hard...it is hard to think of what Jesus went through to save me from...myself. But, friends, Sunday is coming...and for that I'm SO THANKFUL!
