It's Friday...But Sunday's Coming!

Good Friday everyone! It's good for what it means in this holy week and it's good to have another week of quarantine pass by which will bring us closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. April is a huge birthday month with many friends and family on the list! I had loads of fun creating this card using The Greetery's new Top Down Day stamps and dies.

The sky was stenciled using My Favorite Things' cloud stencil and Aqua Mist ink. The patterned papers are from the Bitty Big: Aqua Mist pack by Papertrey Ink. All of the stamped images were popped up with foam tape. To soften up the look, I used a corner chomper on the lower corners.

I never get tired of listening to this Easter meditation by S.M. Lockridge (1913-2000), pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in San Diego from 1953 to 1993.
It’s Friday
Jesus is praying
Peter’s a sleeping
Judas is betraying
But Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
Pilate’s struggling
The council is conspiring
The crowd is vilifying
They don’t even know
That Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
The disciples are running
Like sheep without a shepherd
Mary’s crying
Peter is denying
But they don’t know
That Sunday’s a comin’

It’s Friday
The Romans beat my Jesus
They robe him in scarlet
They crown him with thorns
But they don’t know
That Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
See Jesus walking to Calvary
His blood dripping
His body stumbling
And his spirit’s burdened
But you see, it’s only Friday
Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
The world’s winning
People are sinning
And evil’s grinning

It’s Friday
The soldiers nail my Savior’s hands
To the cross
They nail my Savior’s feet
To the cross
And then they raise him up
Next to criminals

It’s Friday
But let me tell you something
Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
The disciples are questioning
What has happened to their King
And the Pharisees are celebrating
That their scheming
Has been achieved
But they don’t know
It’s only Friday
Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
He’s hanging on the cross
Feeling forsaken by his Father
Left alone and dying
Can nobody save him?
It’s Friday
But Sunday’s comin’

It’s Friday
The earth trembles
The sky grows dark
My King yields his spirit

It’s Friday
Hope is lost
Death has won
Sin has conquered
and Satan’s just a laughin’

It’s Friday
Jesus is buried
A soldier stands guard
And a rock is rolled into place

But it’s Friday
It is only Friday
Sunday is a comin’!

Be safe and have a blessed Easter!            ~Wanda

OH I LOVE this card!! That stamp is so fun and I like the way you used the pattern paper. The tucking the flowers behind the sentiment is a great touch!!
