"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

BIRTHDAY FILLABLE FRAMES #4 / PTI July Blog Hop


My grandfather will be 85 tomorrow. I thought that this challenge to use office supplies would be great for his card, since he still works full time! He's a plumber... most folks would say the best, most honest one in town! I would have to agree...



For my entry into PTI's blog hop this month, I used Papertrey Ink's Fillable Frames #4, the matching die, Signature Greetings, and Women of Life for the sentiments. I love that you can mix & match all of these - lol! The base is Kraft, a layer of Aqua Mist, and a layer of Dotty Biscotti Hawaiian Shores. The ledger paper is from Stampin' Up!. For embellishments I used a paperclip, eyelets, staples & a metal rimmed circle tag I bought from an office supply place years ago that I had in my stash.

Thanks so much for "hopping" by!
