"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

TRENDY THANKS / TSSC #69 & TPEC #14...


Light Blue, Medium or Dark Blue,
Green & White
I inked up a Stampin' Up! set tonight for the first time, Trendy Trees. It's a really cute little set... I know, I say that about every set by Stampin' Up!, but I REALLY DO THINK THEY ARE ALL CUTE! Also used for this card are some Baja buttons from Button Bouquet, and Urban Garden Designer Series Paper.


I tried two new challenges tonight, as well. A color challenge from The Pink Elephant, and a sketch challenge provided at Mary Jo Price-Williams's blog, Technostamper. A couple more great places to find inspiration!



I made a little flap that I can put a secret messagein later! I punched out 2 - 1/2 inch circles, attached them with eyelets using my cropodile, and wound twine to close the flap.


Have a great night - I'm finally off to bed!
