"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

{HOPPY} TINY TREATS: VALENTINE / TESC #110...


Using patterned paper has always been somewhat painful for me... I hate to admit that I hoard it, afraid that if I use it up, another project will come along that I REALLY NEED it for & I'll just be left with painful memories of how gorgeous it was and how second rate the newest project will be if I can't use the paper it really needs... silly huh?


But with a super fabuloso sketch like this from Taylor, you just HAVE to use a lot of pattered paper, right? This paper is from My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary Little Boy Blue Collection. I love these colors and patterns, and I bought a lot of it, so that's the only reason I could bear to use any of it - lol! The stamps are from Papertrey Ink, the set is called Tiny Treat: Valentine. I love that froggie! He's colored with Copics, cut out & popped up. I paired this paper with Stampin' Up!'s Sage Shadow, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. I'm gonna miss Sage Shadow...

Today is my Friday, mom (one of my babysitters) & dad are in the Grand Canyon this week, so I'm having to take tomorrow off to watch my own kids... YAY! That means I can stay up extra late tonight stamping - DOUBLE YAY!

PS - weird sign-off I know... I've been daydreaming about 80's movies all morning... does anyone remember The Breakfast Club or Real Genius? I must have watched that movie 100 times...
