Fast & Fabulous Good Friday Cross

Good Morning.  And Happy Good Friday

Today we celebrate and commemorate the ultimate gift of Love given to us almost 2000 years ago.  And nothing is more appropriate for today than a ross.   So allow me to show you my Good Friday Cross.  No stamps.  No ink.  Just fast.  And "fabulous".  (Although for today I'd really rather call it "good" since that adjective is so much more appropriate on Good Friday.....)

Ink - none 
Paper - Whisper White (100730), Early Espresso (119686), So Saffron (105118), Pink Pirouette (111351), Baja Breeze (111352), Embossed Tag from Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit (131395)

I hope you all have a wonderful day.  It is sunny here in Ottawa --->  My favourite childhood memories of Good Friday involve being in church in the middle of the afternoon and having dark clouds roll in and the heavens open up and a massive storm rage all seemed so appropriate somehow.  But that was then and this is now and I can certainly handle the bright sunshine of today and the glorious promise of what is to come....Easter, quite literally, is right around the corner!

Until tomorrow.........God Bless you all,      ~Cynthia     <><
