Can she do a simple card and Church Attendance.

As I've just commented on Lisa's blog,I'm a more is more kind of crafter,so creating a simple card really is a challenge for me....have a managed this time tell me...

I used a penny black stamp,clusters,and stamped it with whisper pens and blended with a bit of water. The paper is from a paper mania pad . Just added a sixizz heart die-cut ribbon slider and a glamorous lilac ribbon.

craft catz: keep it simple

penny black: case it challenge, Helen's card above

The Sweet Stop: they are having a 3rd birthday,you can pick any one of the sketches,I choose the simple one above.
colour create: purple,green and cream

Enjoy the rest of Easter. I went to church yesterday with Sam,it was a nice service and the church was pretty full ,the mood there is not what it was. Everyone is sad about me being made redundant from my job there, nobody more so than me. The minister told us that the age 20-40 age group was the highest in our area ,yet looking around the congregation the majority of people where over 70.
Why don't younger people go to church any more? that's a question poor struggling churches every where are asking. It has become a case of use us or lose us.

A very beautiful card Jane! You have definitely pulled off the simpler style - gorgeous!

I have often pondered your question about church goers and I really don't know the answer. I feel as though many people today revere the wrong things - pop stars, football teams, material goods etc. It's all very sad.
