"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

BUTTON FLOWERS / CQC #30 & CCCB#2...


Time to get your creativity all juiced up with today's colourQ challenge! I loved the inspiration for the challenge so much, I just had to emulate it in the design of my card...




I got an email last week asking my to be the guest designer for week 2 of a new challenge blog, City Crafter. I was SO HONORED! Their challenge this week is to make an easel card, something I've been meaning to do but hadn't... (there are a lot of things on that "meaning to do" list!) Thank you so much to ladies at City Crafter for letting me check something off my list -lol! Be sure to check them out play along this week!!!

I paired their challenge witht the latest colourQ - lovely colors, I could just eat them, they're so luscious!

I dug out every circle punch I own when I sat down to make this card - so fun! I also used the Swirly Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die and the Lots Of Tags Stampin' Up! Sizzlits for this card. The buttons are Papertrey Ink - ccan't GET enough of their buttons!!! The back panel is vellum that I first ran through the Big Shot with a EF & then through the Xyron... I run my vellum through the Xyron so that the whole thing is covered in adhesive, as opposed to using strip tape or an ATG, in which case there would be lines showing where the tape was.... make sense?

Bye for now & don't forget to play along with colourQ & City Crafter this week!
