This image of Jesus and sentiments come from Mark's Finest Paper and Stamps.

If you like this set, you can find it HERE.

Below is an accordion card I made previously, but it sooo fit for this hop and I just had to post it again. It is also from the same stamp set. But this time, I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink for the distressing 
and MS punches.

Here is the front of the card. I like it so much I have it on my mantel for Easter Decoration.
For me, these cards are inspirational.  Jesus came and die for us. He took our place for our sins.  No matter what we are going through, He is on the throne and wants to live in our heart.  In this screwy world, He is the blessed hope that we have.  I hope you liked my projects and I wish you a Blessed Easter season!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
