Since it's Monday, that means a new challenge over at Picture Perfect Creations. Some fabulous colors to play with: Baja breeze, Pear pizazz, Very vanilla and Not quite navy. I immediately thought of a masculine card with these colors!

A fun thing we got to do when chosen for the Picture Perfect Creations DT was pick our favorite past color combo and create something with it. Since I love blues and browns, I knew this was my combo!

The grand prize winner will receive 6 free digis of their choice from Digi Stamp Boutique. Please be sure and comment on the SSW blog to be eligible for this mighty fine prize!! Thanks Sally Ann.
I always have a hard time deciding on an image from Digi Stamp Boutique because they are all so sweet!!! I finally decided on Poppy and Handbag. And what's so funny about this is just yesterday I bought myself a new bright pink purse!! Time to put the leopard print purse away for a while! I do love purses!! And so does Poppy!!!!! If it's possible, I used my least favorite Basic Grey line here, Two Scoops. Why don't you like it you ask...I really don't know why is how I have to answer!!! I dressed it up a little bit with some new Hero Arts lace I just bought, ribbon, button, pearls and some sewing. I really hope you can find a few minutes to create this week and join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

You should have arrived here from Paola's blog, That's Amore. If not, please start at the beginning at Heather's blog, Heather's Coffee Break for lots of inspiration.
Our purpose these 3 days is to draw the attention back to Jesus Christ, just as we did with our Christmas version of "Jesus Is The Reason" hop. In the United States especially, Easter has become about mythical bunnies, candy and hunting for colored eggs. While they amuse us, these things distract us from the real cause for celebration: the most amazing event in history - the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. When Christ was scourged, beaten, tormented, spit upon, ridiculed, mocked, nailed to the cross and forced to bear a crown of thorns (Mark 10:34; Luke 23), it was the greatest act of love (John 3:16) the world has ever known. He didn't deserve any of it - He came into this world without sin. But for our sake, because He loves us, He took on our sins and became sin (2Corinthians 5:21; 1Peter 2:22, 24). He gave Himself as the final, substitutive sacrifice, thereby paying our sin debt in full and proclaiming, "It is finished." (John 19:30) Three days later, after being buried in a tomb, He rose from the dead and walked this earth again (Luke 24; Acts 10:40) before ascending to Heaven (1Thessalonians 1:10) to sit at the Father's right hand (Hebrews 12:2). In light of the true meaning of Easter, we friends of faith have gathered together to celebrate and share the Good News.
We invite you to join us:

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 on Catherine's blog, and a prize is up for grabs for one randomly selected card/project. Now I am truly blessed to be a design team member for two wonderful Christian based stamp companies, so I wanted to create two cards using their images. First is Fresh Brewed Designs. This digital image is called Be Still Easter Egg. Colors include Perfect plum, Pale plum, White and Basic Grey's Kioshi paper. The next company I want to share is Clear Dollar Stamps. And the image I used here is the pre-colored digital Floral Cross. This image is part of a set with 3 images, 3 sentiments, and 7 digital papers. Now the colors here are Certainly celery, Bliss blue, White, and Basic Grey's Euphoria line. I had gotten the green meshy ribbon at the scrap book store and finally putting it to some use.
Now God bless! Hope you enjoy the hop! Your next stop for some love and inspiration will be Susan's blog, Pink Flannel Pajamas.
