his eye is on the sparrow

Good Monday morning everyone! I hope you had a super weekend and that you got just tons accomplished! I had to do the Children's Message (only about 5 minutes) at church yesterday and it was so nerve wracking (and my job is the Director of Children's Ministry...I just don't like to be in front of a full congregation!) that I needed to take a nap yesterday afternoon. The fact that it was daylight saving time might have had something to do with it too though.

This weeks sketch on PCP for Sweet N Sassy Stamps looked like one I could work with so I decided to try it. I got out my His Eye Is On The Sparrow set and some lovely quilted looking paper and came up with this. It is certainly simple...hopefully it looks clean and fresh. The cardstock and ribbon is from PTI and is the of the Berry Sorbet flavor (yum!). I had fun coloring the birds and flowers with my Copic Markers.

I have also liked the new trend of decorating the inside of cards so I decided to try it this time. I used another piece of the patterned paper and Berry Sorbet cardstock and added the sentiment. I still left some room to write a personal note as well. I really like the looks of this. I can't wait until I need to send someone a card!

If you decide to try this sketch I'd love to see your card so please come back and link me to it so I can see.

I'll probably have some Stampin' Up! cards over the next week or so as I would like to be ready for stamp club a little early this month....that and the swap card. Maybe I could even follow the rules this time! Tee hee! Anyway, I hope you have a super Monday! See you soon!

I am with you on speaking. I only had to teach a class for the women at church and that was nerve-racking enough. In two weeks I teach sharing time for the kids, oh no!!! :D
