"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

LILY HOT COCOA / PTW #30 & CTD #73...


Here's a new Lily, she's got a marshmellow~y cup of cocoa..... yummmmmy....



I was up late last night when the new challenge was posted at the Color Throwdown... I was SO tempted to stay up even later to play! But I was a good girl & went to bed - it was after 1am! So after thinking about this challenge most of the day, I settled down to stamp after Jeff left for work this evening! I cheated & swapped the Cool Caribbean for Baja Breeze, which is just a little more muted. I wanted to paper-piece this & I had paper in mind for it which necessitated the switch!


I paired these colors with the sketch challenge from Papertake Weekly, which I loved & really wanted to follow to the letter, but my sentiment was too long to put it at the top & I had to tilt it... trust me - I made 2 sentiments & the first was TOTALLY wrong, so by the time I made this one, I just had to make it work!


This stamp is Lily Hot Cocoa from Pink Cat Studio, of which I'm a huge fan! The paper is retired Stampin' Up! Most everything is paper-pieced, very time consuming, but worth it! I also used stickles on the "Baja" fur parts of her coat.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
