"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

FUN & FAST CHRISTMAS / CTD #65 & FTL #64...


I know it might be too early for Christmas, but...





When I saw the colors for this week's Color Throwdown, I immediately thought of Christmas! I decided to pair it with the Fall-to-Layout, which is such a nice, simple layout.


I used Fun & Fast Notes, watercolored the tree & added some 'bling'! The tree is popped up from the little frame it's on. The bottom half of the background are circles I punched from Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery & Whisper White & they're sitting on a base of Purely Pomegranate, which is retired in the US. You could substitute it with Rose Red, which is very similar, just lighter.


Until tomorrow...
