In fact, I think I have only made two cards so far in 2011... the one I posted in my previous post, and this purple one. I made the purple one for our Children's Ministry Director at church. I was scheduled to teach February 6th and I just couldn't do it. I missed the reminder email she usually sends out (that was when I was deep in the throes of the cold... at this point, I just have a nagging tickle in my throat) and given that, I found myself thinking, on the Saturday night, 'Nah, you must be on next week."
Not! By the time I got the call from her Sunday morning, which amounted to, "Are you ok? You know you're on today, right?" it was a bit late to get there, and even if I could've made it in time, I was in no shape to teach. I felt terrible about it! But she graciously said she would cover for me and I thanked her profusely - we just switched dates... luckily she is a member of the teaching rotation. And luckily I do Big Group, which is basically just the review of the month's virtue, a review of the memory verse, and a Bible story. We use a program called 252 Basics and I just love it!
