Tag Tuesday "Easter"

Time sure flys!  It is Holy week and I am wondering where Christmas went.  I play in Tee's tag swap once a month and the theme right now is Easter/ Spring.  I made this for my swap partner:
The images are freebies from Crafty Secrets.  They are layered on the tag with a little sewing.  I also would like to enter in the following other challenges:  (Tag Tuesday), Catered Crop = use a brad, Raise the bar =" the promise of Easter" and All sorts challenge 148= photo inspiration on the blog.  Speaking of Easter....I read this little quote/prayer  on the "tag Tuesday" blog too... and I think it sums things up..."The Cross shows what sin can do and what love can bear".... hmmmmmm....sounds right to me....

Next is a card I made for a friend of mine who is just beginning her journey to beat breast cancer...she is on my mind .....

Image = Stampotique Sunfleur #9167 colored with Copics.  The paper behind it is handmade India paper that I found in JoAnns' kinda off by itself in a lonely isle ... it is GORGEOUS, has sparkles on it and I cant wait to use it more.  The red button was also at JoAnns and I clipped off the back of it for my card.  I would like to enter this card the PaperTake weekly challenge blog for the beginning of the month which is "anything goes".
TFL  and wishing you all a very Blessed Holy Week leading to Easter Sunday.....  :)

Hi Jane, I'm here and I'm following the Stampotique Designer's Blog, too. Just can't get enough of your incredible art. Connie :)

Hi Jane, I was thrilled to see your name on the Unscripted list of new DT. Yeah for you, I can't wait to see what you do.
love you tag, I suck so bad at tags, isn't that ridiculous.
I will keep your friend in mind. I hate breast cancer. did you know Jen Scull from the old days at S2G is also battling it. She sounded good a couple weeks ago but I haven't heard anything since.

Wonderfully fun creations, Jane. I really like the use of green that runs through both of these pretty paper crafts. You always have such a great eye for colour!

Wishing you the sweetest and most serene of Easters, dear lady,

♥ Jessica
