Saturday my new stamps I ordered from Our Daily Bread arrived. I was so happy that they are now selling some of their beautiful crosses and verses as seperate or smaller stamp sets, making them fit my budget better. The challenge's theme this week is "New Life." Christ has given me a new life through Him. That is why I used this cross. I added the leaves and flowers because they represent the new life after winter. I used a white background for the washing away of sins that Christ's blood gave to us. I am so glad to serve a God who is a" God of do overs" and does not give up on us when we don't get it right the first time. His mercy is so great. No wonder we praise His holy name. Easter is the joyous celebration of the Resurrection, my new life in Christ.
The embossing folder is by Paper Studio and the leaf punch is from Martha Stewart. The flower punch is a mini punch from Creatve Memories. The border punch is Stampin' Up.
