"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

FLYING BIRTHDAY GIRL / MPS #18 & CCC #53...


Isn't this gal a little cutie? Today's card is a first on so many levels...



In my blog hopping, I happened across a super cute digi stamp image by Michelle Perkett, and like I've said so many times, I HAD to have it - lol! Michelle also has a challenge on her blog to make a side step card... so this is my first attempt at it! She linked to a great tutorial on Julie Davison's blog for the side step card. Julie also has a lot of other awesome tutorials - I'll be visiting her again! I also checked out the Copic Color Challenge for the first time... and I happened to have the colors from their challenge this week, so I played along.

This is also my first time making an acetate card... I think I bought a bunch of acetate last year & am now just getting around to using it... I'm such a supply pack rat! The image is from Michelle Perkett, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I printed the image a few times & flipped one copy, so that I could cut out extra clouds to use on the steps... I think it turned out cute! My grandmother's birthday is Sunday... I think she'll love this!

Have a great night!
