" In Jesus time, the Dogwood grew,
To a stately size and lovely hue....."

Hello and Happy Wednesday !!!
Its Heartfelt Creations day today and the most beautiful Dogwood Collection is being released today.

Flowers are the heart and soul of Heartfelt Creations and once again it has made its mark with another beautiful flower- Flowering Dogwoods teamed up with Easter.

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  
Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  
The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus. 

Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals.  
Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the 
beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

I am sure you are now so mesmerised by this collection that words are failing you.
Let me show you my card for today.

A card that has a touch of divine blessings and the lovely dogwood spray---a card that truly says that God is always with us in our prayers and thoughts.
