"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

FANTASTIC FUNGI / CQC #16 & 2S4Y #44...


The mailman delivered a fun surprise yesterday... my monthly kit from Unity Stamp Company!




I thought these mushrooms were so cute, especially that little snail, too! I decided to use the colourQ Challenge for the color scheme and Kazan's Sketch #44, from 2 Sketches 4 You.

The background papers were made by covering newspaper with white tissue that was wadded up & then smoothed back out. The bottom layer was sponged with Pretty in Pink ink. I paper-pieced the mushrooms with bits of retired Stampin' Up! designer series papers. The punch is a Sale-a-Bration item from Stampin' Up!, the Scallop Trim Border Punch. This punch is FREE with a $50 SU! order for a limited time!


Thanks for stopping in - have a terrific day!
