Today we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is everything to me and I love Him so very much.  I want to share with you that He lives and loves us matter who.  I hope that you will join me in celebrating Him.

Along with today being the most important day for Christians, we are also starting a new challenge at Crafting When We Can.  Our challenge is "One for the Girls".  Our sponsor is a new one for us, Doddle DigiStamps.

I was given this lovely image called "Relax Yoga Girl".  I'm not much of a yoga girl at all.  I have no idea how they can do this.  My body just won't bend that way.  I colored her with my Copics but I wanted to give her a nice pattern on the clothes so I did some paper piecing.

Sometimes I get stuck on what to do and when it comes down to the last minute I look for sketches.  Luckily, I found this wonderful sketch.  It was perfect for the image.  Then I picked out all my paper to go with the colors for the Simon Says challenge.  It really helps to find great challenges that will help your creativity along when it gets stuck in the mud.

Please pop over to the CWWC blog and check out the wonderful DT creations.  I do hope you will join in the challenge.  You have two weeks to enter.

Thanks for your visit and have a blessed day!
