"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

STEW POT PALS / CAC #9, C4C #32 & SS 4.9.10...


Okay, this is my last card for today... and I think it's my favorite!







I've been playing along with Becky Oehlers' Compose A Card the last few weeks... it SO FUN! If you have the time, I highly recommend it. This card also fulfilled the 'stitching' requirement for Stamp Something and the 123 [1 ribbon, 2 buttons or brads and the use of 3 different punches] for Crazy 4 Challenges. That is if you count the eyelet as a brad or button & the whole I punched for the eyelet as one of the three punches...

I used Garden Variety paper from Cosmo Cricket to go with this retired Stampin' Up! image (circa 2005) from Stew Pot Pals... another set I've never inked up! I even had to trim this one! This little carrot goes so well with this paper, I couldn't resist! I used my Small Tag & 1 1/4" punches, as well as the punch on my Crop-o-dile. I distressed the edges a little with Sahara Sand ink, and the sliver of red matting showing is Riding Hood Red, which is coming back to the SU! color families this summer - YAY!!! I colored the image with Copics & finished it off with some faux stitching!

Have a great day & thanks for coming by!
