"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

SINCERE THANKS a Medallion/ PPA10 & PCPCC #36...


Okay, cuky name for a post... sorry! Late at night my brain switches over to dork mode, and the strangest things suddenly seem so cool... I digress. I was excited to get to use my Medallion stamp from Stampin' Up! on this quick card, though!




It's been a while since I played along with Paper Craft Planet's Color Challenge, so I decided to check it out this week & the colors seemed perfect to use with what I had in mind for this stamp. The inspiration for the colors was a cat, Princess Gizzy, and since Millie (the challenge admin) had picked Basic Black, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa & Very Vanilla, I figured I would do the same. Over at Pals Paper Arts, the theme for this week's challenge is "Gratitude & Thanks", my card also applied. (If you have not checked PPA out, please do - they are a very nice group to stamp with!!!)


Anyways, besides using the exquisite Medallion stamp, I also used Sincere Salutations for the sentiment. I stamped the Medallion 3 times, using Basic Black, More Mustard, and Close to Cocoa ink & then cut out 1/4 of each, which measured 2-1/8". I then cut 3 squares of equal size out of the 3 cardstocks. The Very Vanilla base they are on measures 4-5/8". I wish you could see that each 'tile' is raised on the base using dimensionals, but I couldn't photograph it well enough! I finished it off with a bit of black grosgrain ribbon.


Thanks so much for stopping in,
