Easter Blessings

My goodness, March is just flying by! I wanted to remind my local readers of an event coming up on March 27, 2010 being hosted by Phebe of The Town Scrapper!(well, technically I shouldn't limit this to local readers!! lol, if you'd like to travel then we'd love to have you too!!) She is holding a fundraiser, which will run from 12:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon in beautiful Petrolia, Ontario! Phebe is planning a water colouring demo. There will also be two Copic demos, one by Krista and the other by me!! The three of us sat down together at Coffee Lodge the other night planning the details...well, and we may have indulged in some cheesecake too! lol Ladies, I know this will be a fun event! You will make up to three cards with Phebe's brand new Victoria Case images. There will also be snacks and refreshments...mmmm. Now, this event will be capped at 15 and as of the other day, there were only a few spots left. So, if you are interested please call or email Phebe quickly! (Oh! Don't foget to hop on over to The Town Scrapette's Blog for our weekly challenge! This week we're asking you to use Ribbons and Rub Ons! There are some fantastic examples by the DT on the blog for inspiration. If you participate this week, you could find yourself the lucky winner of a brand new Victoria Case stamp designed exclusively for The Town Scrapper!! Details are on the blog here.)

I also thought I'd share an Easter card with you today. Now, some of you may have seen this yesterday over on our Sweet 'n Sassy group at SNR. I made it for our Digi Day challenge (to make an Easter themed project). This Sweet 'n Sassy image is called "Christ Arose". What a beautiful significant for the Easter season. Korin has several images that are just perfect for Easter.

The image was of course coloured with my Copic markers. I kept the layout very simple, as I really wanted the image to be the focus.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I will see you back tomorrow with a card for the Kraftin' Kimmie weekly challenge. (I've been working on a card with one of Crissy Armstrong's gorgeous fairies!)
