COF-Easter

I am the hostess this month. Since Easter is before our April posting, I would like to concentrate on the sacrifice Jesus made for us- him becoming the Passover Lamb- suffering, dying and rising again for us! 
John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said, "I thirst". A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished", and bowed his head and gave up his spirit. 

The Mosaic Law required the the sacrificial lamb be spotless and have no broken bones. Christ is the sacrificial lamb of the new Passover. The passion, crucifixion and death of Christ, offered for our redemption, is proof of God's love for us and of the enormity of our sins that offend God and separate us from Him. 

Please make a project using a cross and on your card, use purple somewhere- a small amount or the entire card- it is up to you. 





 I pulled these images out of my unused section.... I think they are Eureka stamps, but I could be wrong......  
  The cross is inked up with Versamark and Close to Cocoa (retired SU ink) and then clear embossed. I added it to the embossed background using dimensionals.  The ribbon was added, then the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with Black Memento Tuxedo ink and colored with just a touch of Copic Marker. 

The Crafters of Faith is a group on SCS. We have a challenge hostess from the group give us a challenge each month based on a scripture. It is an OPEN group, so if you would like to join us, drop Kelly a line!  Check out the other COF cards on Splitcoast HERE!
