Easter and Thanks

I made the card below for last week's Card Patterns sketch 104, but just forgot to post it. I used my latest Christ is Risen set and Basic Grey Curio papers.
Nina Sketch 104
I made this card below for the Paper Crafts Magazine's Sketch for Card Makers call. I got two cards in that publication, but this one didn't make it. This was one of my favorites because I love quilts (but don't have the skills or patience to create a real one :-). The sentiment is from my Nana's Needlework Sentiments and papers by October Afternoon. This was based on sketch #77. You can download all the sketches HERE. And I'm not sure if it qualifies, but I'm entering it to Moxie Fab's Paper Piecing Challenge.

This is also perfect for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ current challenge. I think every other card I make qualifies for their challenge because I just love buttons :-). I especially love the short lesson on the names of God in the Bible found in the SSIC post. What a great reminder of the Great God we serve!
Thanks Sew Much
Have a great weekend, everyone!

  11. Just love both of these cards. The crowns & cross and colors are so beautiful in the first, and being a sewer, I just love the quilting effect and colors of the second one. Fabulous!
    The first card should of been published, sorry it didn't make it.
