Flourishes Friday - Tomorrow's Forecast

Here we are at Friday again,  and this Friday the most special one on the calendar for me, as it is Good Friday.  The day I remember my Savior Jesus dying on the Cross for me.  We'll be at our Church today having a special service, one of my favourites all year where we pray for/with people as we serve communion to them.  I count it a real privilege to pray for people, it's one of my favourite services all year.

So friends how has your week gone?  Could you use a little encouragement?

How about this?


I put together a pretty sunny card for you today with the new set April Showers from Flourishes, and I just love this sentiment...there's always hope for a brighter tomorrow isn't there?  And that is especially true as we remember Good Friday.  I have hope...Sunday's comin'!

I used a very rounded theme to match the pretty sunshine taking full advantage of my Spellbinders Dies and my Grand Calibur


Here's the Grand Circles Die, the Large Pinking Circles Die, and the Grand Scalloped Circles Die after I've run them through the Grand Calibur.  Then as a line of pretty trim I added the Parisian Accents Die in a light gray color to match the clouds.  


I also added some sheer dotted ribbon in a ruffled fashion around the pinked main image, with a pretty bow and a Karen Foster Scrapstick as accent.  I used the Daffodil and Cool Neutral Copic Collection for coloring as well as a B00.

Just thought I'd let you know that there are NEW Flourishes Copic Collections in the Store!  I'm so excited!   Check out THIS LINK Friday to see them all!

Remember today is your last day to purchase the April New Release Bundle from Flourishes at a discount.  For more wonderful eye candy with these new sets see the Design Team....

Loving the yellow - I've forgotten the sun is that colour due to all the rain we've been having LOL!

I agree, Easter is a powerful time! Since seeing The Passion of the Christ (which I bawled through) Easter has never been the same. The cost much more amplified and the gift that much more special.

The grade 5/6's are doing a God Rod performance to Arise My Love at the Easter performance and it is so powerful! I cry every time they do it, especially when my son has the lead part. Powerful and very moving. Can't wait to see them perform it for real.

Have a blessed Easter weekend and may the cost and gift of the cross touch you in a new way this Easter.
