"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

HAPPY NEW YEAR / 2S4Y #42...


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Gosh, it's so hard to believe we are about to start 2010...



I played along with Laura's sketch #42 from 2 Sketches 4 You... and they also suggested the colors, too - red, black & silver!


The houndstooth paper (Night & Day Specialty DSP) & cardstock is from Stampin' Up! I can tell I'm going to have to stock up on that Night & Day paper before it retires! The buttons are from the Playground Deisnger set and I also used the Daisies Flower #2 Bigz Die for the red 'burst' behind the stamped image. The stamp is from Lizzie Anne's December Mix Stamp set, which I stamped in Silver Encore onto black cardstock & embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss powder.


Anyone have any resolutions? I'm hoping to get back into some semblance of reasonable shape after I have the baby... I'd also like to keep my stamping stuff better organzied (if you're reading this Jeff (and stop rolling your eyes), I PROMISE I'll clean up the dining room this weekend!). My third resolution is to spend more time outside in the yard & garden, so my mom doesn't have to come & clean up my flowerbeds in the spring & fall - mom, you can stop rolling your eyes, too!


A last note... as of today I am officially 2 weeks away from delivering Maisie Grace. Please pray for our family, that she will be very patient & not come out until I tell her to. My parents are leaving for a week-long cruise tomorrow (yeah, I know, it was my dad's brilliant idea... he's such a MAN) and they won't get back until the evening of the 9th. I am scheduled to have Maisie via c-section on the 14th. I am trying very hard not to panick & be stressed out. So again, please remember us in your prayers.


Bye for now!

Totally cute card, Arielle! And here's hoping that little girl stays where it's warm and toasty - she wouldn't even think about coming early if you lived up here! :)
