"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

VIOLETS / CD #63, 2S4Y #50 Bonus Sketch & TPE #62...


You ever make a card (or 3) and just when you begin to take pictures you realize your camera battery is dead because you forgot to turn it off the last time you took pics of your cards? Which means now you can't shoot them, edit them & post them to your blog. So even though you've stayed up til 1 AM to get a jump on things, you still fail... Maybe I need another camera battery...





Well this is certainly one of those days, at least the dancing lights of my migraine have faded away... The Color Dare took last week off for SpRiNg BrEaK... but WE'RE BACK TODAY with some fantastic colors!! If you've never played, or it's been a while - YOU SHOULD JOIN US THIS WEEK! I paired this with the bonus sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You... I still plan to tackle Kazan's sketch, I just have to work up my nerve - lol! So working with the bonus is like sticking my toe in the water... This also fulfilled the recipe challenge at the Pink Elephant - which was 1 Image, 2 Dies and 3 of your Favorite Embellishment! (I used 6 of my fave embelli, hope that's okay)

This card uses the Papertrey sets, Violets. I just love violets! Also I'd been seeing people 'shade' their cardstock images with darker tones, so I decided to try that... pretty cool! Everything seemed to be too smooth on this card, so I added some 'rough' faux stitching to shake things up. As a matter of fact, I was in quite a faux stitching mood last night, (as well as square card mood) so the next two I post today will continue on with that theme [of sorts].


Bye for now & thank you so much for stopping by!
