"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

POPPIES / MTSC #69, CTD #88 & TSG #50...


Oh how I {heart} poppies... they are just so beautiful! I think have another set of poppies somewhere, I'll have to dig it out!




The stamps are from There She Goes, and all the paper is Stampin' Up!. I love this b&w houndstooth paper from SU! - I wish I had a whole ream of it - lol! I pleated the yellow paper at the bottom... it was easier to me to run it through the paper crimper first, then add a strip of glue to the edge of it before I started pleating. It looked neater than trying to do it by hand! WHen I was finished, the two ends seemed a little uneven so I trimmed it straight again with a ruler & exacto...

Bye for now!!!

This is wonderful. I love all the texture and those poppies are fantastic! I like how you did the tag. Did you cut the one underneath and spread it bigger? Great idea!
