Good morning and Happy Easter to you all!!
Today’s challenge at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ is to make a joyful card: something celebratory!! Traci is our lovely hostess this week and she shares this verse:
Hebrews 12:2-3 "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."
Christians all over the world are celebrating the most joyous event in history… the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The message never gets old, it is the key foundation of my faith and I am looking forward to going to church today and hearing it once again. I’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Billy Graham preach, however Traci shares a snippet from one of his Easter messages on our challenge blog, so be sure to pop over if you’d like… and also check out what the other DT made!

So my printer finally went kaput on me. I cringed at the thought, but I did decide to buy a new one online yesterday for $59.99 (Epson Stylus 230) at the advice of a friend and am hoping it will have a good long run! :)
In the meantime, I’ve been using my Cricut more…. and I have TWO ‘Joyful’ projects to share for this challenge! Both of my cards today also fit the "Cooking With Cricut" challenge which is EASTER! And the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is to Use an Egg!
This first one I used my Create-a-Critter cartridge and my SCAL software to cut out a shaped card and these cute li’l “Easter animals”!
I drew some faces and doodling on them based on some I had seen online.

And for my next card… I really surprised myself! I Googled how to make an SVG file and I downloaded the free program, watched a video and then went to work with McMahon Five Designs’ beautiful Everlasting Flower digi… converting it into an svg file. I cut it with my Cricut. Still needs a bit of re-working, but not too shabby for my first time creating an svg huh??
Here is the digi from M5D:
and here’s my card with the SVG I made…
Hope you’re having a blessed Easter Sunday today with your families!!We are going to church after I throw a ham in the roaster and “party potatoes” in the crockpot, and of course deviled eggs and salad! Yep, I’m doing it all and taking it my MIL’s for the day. Should be fun! Hope y’all have a great one!!
