I Love Fuzzy Ducks!

Hello everyone! Hope your day is as bright and cheery as mine is today! Today I have a card to share with you that I've created for the challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle.  It's an Easter theme and the cards are all incredibly cheery, do come join us! For my part I've created my card using a Dearie Dolls image -Fuzzy Ducks.
I used some CS from Staples and the Dollar Store and layerd them together (one I ran through my Cuttlebug with the floral embossing folder) and distressed the edges a bit.  I added ribbon from SoFacille and feathers from my kids crafting supplies.  Atop of this I added my wonderful fuzzy ducks with their wonderful blue ribbons.  To share the joy of spring and new life I added a great sentiment from BrossArtaddiction.  To finish it off I added some small blue rhinestones from Forever In Time.
This week our wonderful sponsor is Dearie Dolls and if you haven't checked them out before you should.  Just click on the pic and it'll take you there.  The prize this week is three of her wonderful images.

I don't actually celebrate Easter. What! you say, keep reading..... Most all of the Easter traditions come from pagan origins and so as a Christian I choose not to participate in them.  I do joy in the coming of Spring and new life! As for the Lord Jesus, I chose to remember His death, burial, and resurrection each day of the year!  and of course through the Lord's Supper..."this do in remembrance of Me."-Luke 22:19
The Lord Jesus through his death, burial, and resurrection paid the price for sin once and for all.  What joy for those who have believed on the name of Jesus to know that they are forgiven and are watching for His blessed return! Do you have the wonderful gift of salvation that Jesus offered? If you don't, know that Jesus in his love for you, paid the price for your sin and longs for you to turn to Him in faith.  "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. " -Act 16:31 It is through Jesus alone that we may have Life Everlasting.  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6
Spring is a wonderful time to joy in new life and to thank the Lord Jesus for the life he gives to those who place their trust in Him.
Love and Prayers,
