"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

CARDINAL CHRISTMAS / Mojo #113 & CTD #69...


Apparently nothing says Christmas like a shiny cardinal...


Everyone seems to be getting into the Christmas spirit, and the awesome colors from the Throwdown this week are no exception! I played along with the Mojo sketch, too! I made this card this morning but hated it. So it had some major cosmetic surgery to make it acceptable... here's what it did look like...



... yeah, I was also less than enthused... so I knew I needed to DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING to save it - LOL! I did use a new set, A Cardinal Christmas, which is quite cute. I love cardinals! And the big brown glitter brad is one that I made... the directions are here. I also added some stickles to the cardinal image as well.


Thanks for stopping by!
