Because He Lives

Yes I'm back after a much needed sabbatical.  Because He Lives I can face tomorrow!  Got an opportunity to get some organization in my life and taken inventory of my stash.  I found this paper for my first card and can't remember where, when or what brand it is.  I do know it's very old.  It just screamed spring and that's why I added this image and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. The flowers is a sure indication that life will go on.

I truly feel renewed from my time off just like the Word Art Wednesday message that reads, "I have been CRUCIFIED with Christ.  It is no longer I who live, but CHRIST lives in me. Galatians 2:20.  This is my take on the sketch.  Of course the pretty colors from The Play Date Cafe challenge made it easy and using Martha Stewart punches finished it off.  The adorable digital image is by Robert Jackson colored with Spectrum Markers & use of glossy accents.

I had a Hallelujah good time creating these cards.  I'm sure the angels in Heaven heard me........
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. 
Because He lives, all fear is gone. 
Because I know He holds my future
and life is worth the living just because He lives.
Got to keep a song in my heart and Psalm on my mind.  That's how I start my day.
