page plans and round-up...woohoo!

Good morning friends! Did you all have a fantastic Valentine's Day? I enjoyed my time with my kids and husband!

I have two cards to show you today! First...it is Sunday so it is Page Plans day! Woohoo! The sketch today is a wonderful one. I'm going to direct you to the Page Plans blog to see the sketch. My card is made with the set America the Beautiful by Kim Hughes which is available at Cornish Heritage Farms (and I see is on sale right now). I made this card because one of Jon's friends was promoted to Eagle Scout a couple of weeks ago and we wanted to give him a card (we know the entire family...as a matter of fact they were our first friends in this town). This was truly a fun card to make...so upbeat!

The other card for today is Sweet N Sassy Stamps Round Up. We get to preview one of the NEW sets that SNSS will be revealing during the blog hop...see my sidebar for more information about the blog hop. The set I'm preview is called His Eye Is On The Sparrow and is illustrated by Chris Dickinson. You will seriously love this set. I have always enjoyed the scripture that the name of the stamp set refers to. As a matter of fact I'm going to link you to Sandi Patty singing this song. I saw her perform this song at a a Women of Faith conference. Wonderful!

For this card I stamp the image on the card (4" x 4") then stamped it on about three other pieces of card stock, colored them, and then popped up the birds and full flowers. I really is completely lovely in real life. I then used my two favorite sentiments on the inside.

Now...head on over to the Sweet N Sassy Stamps blog and check out all the other design team members round up cards...you are going to be wow'd for sure!

On a personal note...if you didn't get a chance to watch the video in THIS post named Cardboard Testimonies I wish you would take just a moment and do that today.

Have a wonderful day!

Lorie,
Great cards! And very timely. I have to make an Eagle Scout card for someone too. He's receiving his award in the next few weeks. I was wondering if you ever received the card I sent to you. Thanks for the inspiration. Take care!
Hugs,
Donna
