"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

DELIGHTFUL DECORATIONS a la RETRO / USSIS#27 & JUGS3...


AAHHH ~ I'm still being bitten by the retro bug...




Yes, I know this SU! Ski Slope paper is retired, and I'm sorry - but I loved it so much I bought a ton of it before it went away & I just HAD to use it for this challenge! I played along again this week with Unscripted Sketches, and a new-to-me challenge, at Just Us Girls (anyone ever seen a guy in one of these challenges? Maybe it IS just us girls...).


Delightful Decorations is a Stampin' Up! set featured in the Holiday Mini. And even better, there's a punch, the Ornament Punch, that goes with it - YAY - no cutting out required! For the funky retro background, I punched out a bunch of small ovals out of different designs of the designer series paper, layed it out in a pattern & trimmed where it hung over the sides of the card. You could do the same with any shape...


Thanks so much for looking,
