From the Heart Sketch #6 & Everyday Card

Hi everyone-
Are you enjoying your day off? Hubby always has Monday's off, so it's no real treat for him!! 
So he's out in the garage cleaning it up and I am inside playing with paper and baking!!  Yummy.

So today, I have two cards to share with you. 
So every Monday, From the Heart has a new challenge posted for you to play with and I LOVE sketches.  So I could not pass the up playing with this weeks sketch.
Here is my sample card:
I love how well the paper matches with the image.  The image is called Balancing Hearts and I have colored it using my Copic Markers.  The patterned paper is from MME: Springtime.  The cardstock is by Recollection and SU: So Saffron and buttons are PTI.

So there there you have it.  
I hope that you will join us this week, for a chance to win $5 GC to the From The Heart Store.  Make sure to check out the rest of the amazing cards created by the rest of the team.

I would like to enter in the following challenge:
Card Mania #14
CWLC #29

And my second card was a just because card.  I love cards with just sentiments on the front and with strong messages.  This is a favorite quote of mine and was excite to see Faith had it. 
It is part of the Possibilities Sentiment Pack
I used KaiserCraft: Chapter One paper.  I love the blue/green and the hint of black. 
For this card I am using My Favorite Things Sketch #111.
