"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

FRESH CUT FILIGREE / USSIS #38 & CTD #75...


Today's card (which I have pre-posted - how cool is that?!?) is a little different than my normal fare... I had a great winning entry by Pam Speidel at the colourQ last week that was distressed and sponged, so I was inspired... thanks Pam!



The last two weeks have been amazing! I applied for the DT at Color Dare and made it! And if that was exciting enough, a few days later I got an email asking me to join the Unscripted DT! I loved their sketches from the first time I started playing, so there was NO WAY I would say no! As you read this, I am in the hospital having our second baby. But I was determined to not "slack off" on my new duties! This card is for today's Unscripted Sketch #38 and also for this week's Color Throwdown, another challenge I love. I don't know about you, but I play along with challenges for the challenge, not because of prizes. Of course, giving out a cool blog badge to the winners is a definite plus! Why do you guys play along with challenges? Any thoughts? Leave me a comment...


The background stamp is from Stampin' Up! called French Filigree. I stamped the flower with the big background stamp of the Fresh Cuts set, and then I punched it out with a Martha Stewart punch.


Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card. The style is really great. Congrats on the DTs. Must be exciting!

I play challenges cause it's fun and challenges me to try new things that I wouldn't have thought of. It develops my skills (I hope!) Having a starting point for a card sometimes is nice. I also love to have someone see my card and give a nice comment!
