"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

BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS II #1 / CQC #28 & SSSC #64...


AHHH ~ another HaPpY tUeSdAy with the colourQ!!! These colors will certainly put a spring in your step & a song in your heart..




Can you tell I'm just a little 'too in love' with this argyle embossing folder these days? Do you ever get like that ~ you fall in love with a certain product ir image & reach for it EVERY TIME you make a card? I may have to hide it from myself for a while...

Today's card uses this week's new colourQ challenge paired with an awesome sketch by Karen @ Sweet Sunday Sketch... I've been seeing die cuts used in this way for a couple weeks now, so when I say her sketch I had to try iy with my new Papertrey Ink dies... too cute huh? The sentiment is also PTI - I stamped it after I embossed - lol! Glad it turned out, otherwise I would've had to scrap the whole thing and start over...


Make sure to play along with the colourQ this week - the DT's samples are amazing!

This card jumped right out at me from the challenges! Such a great take on the color combo and sketch. I love how you punched out the shapes and layered the colors behind. And the embossed argyle adds so much interest!
