Hand-Lettered Easter Print {Free Download}


Over the past couple of weeks, I've truly been in awe of the new life that spring brings. After a brutal winter, I found myself longing for spring to come even more than usual this year. When I saw those first daffodils and crocuses poke their heads out from the earth a few weeks ago, I cheered them on knowing that they were pioneering the start of a new season. A week later the tulip trees started blooming. Those were quickly followed by my favorites - cherry blossoms. I biked down to the Tidal Basin to see the "official" ones during the early part of their peak bloom and was overwhelmed as always by their beauty. {I'll be sharing the photos I snapped of them in a post later this week.} Spring reminds me, as it does every year, that winter's desolation does not last forever and that new life will always come again.

Easter too is a celebration of new life, but carries much more significance. This week Christians celebrate the fact that Jesus died on a cross...and then came back to life. For us. Death came on Good Friday, but it turned to life three days later on Easter Sunday. Kind of like going from winter to spring. In my mind, this is the most important holiday of the year and the most joyful one the Church celebrates. I for one can.not.wait for Sunday, which is why I created this hand-lettered print that y'all can download below. Inspired by the colors of the tulip trees and cherry blossoms, this watercolor-esque print holds the phrase that embodies the most important fact of Easter: "He is risen indeed. Alleluia!"

Feel free to print it out (designed as an 8x10 - print on card stock and trim to size), hang it up, and share it with your family and friends! It also comes in blue if pink isn't your thing :).
