"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

FAHJA KNOWS BEST / CPS #162 & JAI #13...


Sorry about the title of this post... I was entertaining myself with thoughts of Austin Powers movies as I was typing... I think it was Goldmember...





Here's a snappy Father's Day card...I love Kiwi Kiss, it should have been among those colors coming back, but oh well... I played along with Card Positioning Systems this week - love the sketch - it kinda looked masculine to me, as did these awesome colors over at Just Add Ink! So I added some ink & ViolĂ ! {I hope my accent is facing the right way over that 'a'}

I stayed up for the Papertrey Ink Release Party last night, SO FUN!!! Shannan Teubner won the whole release package... how exciting! She deserves it!!! Anyways I was able to get all the goodies I wanted & then some. I was recently asked if I ever feel guilty about using other products besides SU!... NOPE! I think everyone should use what they like! Do you only buy one brand of clothes, or only eat at one restaurant? Of course not... If you worked for Outback, wouldn't you eat a steak somewhere else every once in a while? You get the point...

Anyways, this set is called Father Knows Best from Papertrey. Hard to tell, but I used that retired SU! set, Perfect Plaids again, as well as my argyle EF. I can't help it... just wait til I have that PTI Argyle stamp set in my hands - someone will have to come over & smack me so I don't use it on EVERY card - lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

I've been following your blog for probably a couple of weeks now. I'm so glad I found it! I love this card. Thanks for the inspiration. I was recently thinking about the fact that making cards for my husband was more difficult for me than making any other cards, so I love seeing ideas for cards for men. I love that ribbon and the buttons!!
