"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

AUTUMN SPLENDORific THANKS / 2S4Y #36 & PPA9 & PEC #34...


Well, I found a few more minutes this evening to stamp... the weather here will be cooler this week, so I'm hoping fall is finally on its way!





This card fit the bill for 3 challenges tonight, 2 Sketches 4 You #36, Pals Paper Arts #9 - which is a new one for me, and Pink Elephants Recipe Challenge!

I used a beautiful set from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catty, called Autumn Splendor, which will make a nice manly set after fall is no more! On the base of the card I used the Woodgrain background stamp, also manly! I stamped the leaves in Chocolate Chip onto mulberry paper & watercolored the greenish brown background & then used markers to color in the leaves. For the 3-D-ish leaves, I stamped them onto Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango & Always Artichoke, used a little marker on them, cut them out, crumpled them up & stuck them on! Hemp twine (some of it colored with a marker), a mustard button, a big eyelet & 'Give Thanks' (from a hostess set) finish it off!

Thanks for stopping in & have a great day!

Your card is incredible and absolutely GORGEOUS, Arielle! I love it! I love what you did with the leaves! Great color choices for them, too! They really "pop" against the stamped woodgrain background! Button accent is the perfect add-on to tie it all together! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Excellent job with the PPA Inspiration Challenge!
