Bunny with carrot

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today is one of those laid back Sunday's that I love. Nothing pending and it allowed me to just sit back and relax.
Our day started with church. Our Pastor had a really good message today. He used the scripture verse from John 11:38. It is the account of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Pastor said so much and 2 of his statements that stood out with me:
1.  When God speaks people come alive
2.  When we put our lives in God's hands we don't accept that nothing can change.
I made a big pot of marinara sauce for dinner. I will serve it with some brown rice pasta which is really good by the way and a leafy green salad. The sauce is smelling so incredible as I sit and type this post. Can't wait for dinner. I use red wine in my sauce and I love the flavor it gives.
Now onto my card for today. I am starting with my Easter cards and this is another one for the stash. The layout is from this week's sketch challenge #479 on Splitcoaststampers.
My card colors are from this week's color throwdown #283.
The image is a Great Impressions Stamp- bunny with carrot E573.  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

Cut with a Spellbinders labels 8 die and layered it on the fancy labels 8 die cut in tangerine tango.

The glittery background and dotted designer paper is something I had in my stash from Recollections (Michael's). Used another Spellbinders die cut in basic gray for my sentiment.  Stamp is from the Marks Finest Papers set "blessings".
That's my card for today. Time to get back to the kitchen to make salads and cook the pasta. So until next time......God bless.
