Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge 33 . . . And Happy Easter!

Happy Sunday stampers! And the best Sunday of the year on my calendar, Easter Sunday when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!!
This week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ our lovely hostess is Kathy, who selected the verse from John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever should believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Her challenge this week is on your card or project have the word Love or something that symbolizes love to you.
Our sponsor this week is Inktegrity, or Digital stamps by Joni, found at this address, http://www.shophandmade.com/store/joni, and she is donating a $10 gift card to one lucky winner who enters our challenge this week!
My card uses one of her cute little digital stamps. Thanks to a tip from a design team sister, Kris, I was able to get my cranky printer to cooperate. First she suggested, print the image out on a plain piece of paper, then tape a piece of cardstock over it and reprint it. It worked! So then I printed out portions on different piece of patterned paper to paper piece the digital image.
The little 'love' stamp is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and this card is for my DH's grandmother who celebrated her 96th birthday on Saturday! She is a master at spreading love among her grandchildren.
And as for the verse for this week, there is no verse in the bible that more succinctly describes God's love for us. If you have any questions this Easter Sunday about the sacrifice Jesus made to save us from our sins, contact any member of the design team and we'd be happy to share our personal story of His redemptive love in our lives. Thanks for looking.
