"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

5TH AVE. FUNKYness / CPS #103 & CTD #30...




Although I loved the colors from Color Throwdown #30, I thought they were a bit hard this week! Of course, then I looked at the weekly sketch over at Card Positioning Systems and it looked hard, too, so I thought I might as well put 'em together!

I mounted another new set for this one, Fifth Avenue Floral, from Stampin' Up! And I tell you, I have only begun to play with this set~ I LOVE IT!!!

The top flower was colored in using blender pens and classic ink. I used my glue pad to add the sentiment, which I dusted in blue glitter. I also added orange glitter (glitter from Martha Stewart, of course!) in a couple places using a glue pen. The punch is also from Martha... I saw it used on someone else's card a few weeks ago and my quest to acquire it began... isn't it great how easily we are enabled by everyone?

I know I'm not alone... my husband thinks there ought to be a support group of some kind for people like me who snap up each & every stamp/punch/brad/etc... I see, but he knows we'd just egg each other on to collect more! LOL!

Have a great day!
