"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

MORE BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS / FTL #86, DCBD #172, & SR #15...


Here's a 10 minute card for a Friday morning ~ I made this before work, because I used up all my stamping time last night on my card for tomorrow's Unscripted Sketch!





And yes, here's that set of dies again ~ I just can't help myself! This card is for 3 challenges today; Clean & Simple's Fall-to Layout, Diva Coffee Break Design's color challenge & Stampin' Royalty's challenge to K*I*S*S... which I think I did.

Let me just say, I'd forgotten that the Diva's prefer only Stampin' Up! products to be used, but this card could easily be made switching out the dies used & the sentiment... I used Papertrey's Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies and the sentiment is also PTI, Signature Greetings. Buttons are PTI, Lemon & Hibiscus (I think?!?) After I cut out the flowers, I ran each one through my Big Shot with a different EF... super easy!

Have a great Friday!





Here's a sneak peek of my card for tomorrow's Unscripted Sketch Challenge, you should join us this week!
