Here's Looking at You!

Do you ever feel like someone is watching you? I have, it's often spiders or some other little creature, that's found it's way to me.  Over at the Sweet Stampin' challenge blog, it's all about nature, bugs and bees.  I saw this great pre-coloured set by Clear Dollar Stamps called Praying Eyes Mantis found Here.  This guys eyes just jumped out at me and I couldn't help myself!
When I think of someone watching me, I often remember that the Lord Jesus sees me, all the time.  He knows  my thoughts and motives to.  Knowing this spurs me on to be careful little eyes what I see/ ears what I hear/ mouth what I say and feet where I go.  I love the children's song that I often sing to my kids to remind them that everything they do is important and that the Lord Jesus is watching us all the time.  It spurs me to live right, but it is also a comfort to know that I am never alone and that He is always there for me!
For this card, I used the image and sentiment from the Clear Dollar Stamps set, layered them with some great papers from K & Company and the Dollar Store.  I used a beautiful green ribbon from Offray and some yellowy green rhinestones from Forever In Time.  The edges were inked with Windflower green ink.  Do you notice anything with the eyes? I used some Diamond Glaze by Judikins to add some dimention to them.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
