A Kiss for Easter...

Last night at our Church's Easter service, we saw a really neat video...a modern retelling of the story of Jesus.

Since I spend time in the twitterverse--I enjoyed this version.  Hope you like it!

Now, for my Easter card...
Weeks ago I saw Lydia (Understand Blue) and Leslie (Crooked Stamper)  play with the Kissing Technique and completely SQUEEEE'd when I saw it and knew I'd have to try!  I spent an hour trying many different color combonations/contrasts to see what would look best...and I decided on this:

All supplies Stampin' Up! Stamps: Ornate Blossom, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper/Ink: Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo
Stampin' Up! 3" and 3.5" Bigz dies, dots embossing folders, window punch, corner chomper

Happy Easter!

Ink: SU! Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
Cardstock: SU! Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Whisper White scrap

My brother, Skip, spent the week with us for Spring Break....and I encouraged Lydia to break away from her day job to come meet us at The Salt Lick for some amazing BBQ and laughs. Good times!
