"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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEANNE!!!!


Late yesterday afternoon I found out today is LeAnne's birthday! What could I do? It was too late to send a card... so I organized a little Mini Birthday Blog Hop in her honor!


LeAnne is one of the most talented and sweetest people you'll ever come across! The first time I talked to her on the phone, she seemed like a familiar friend! She always has the nicest comments, and has a way of making people feel special! I am very blessed to know her.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my friend!!!

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for LeAnne's card... sweets for the sweet! The stamps are from Papertrey, Ink, Everday Button Bits. I also used PTI's buttons & added rhinestones to the tops of them! The paper is from my gigantic stash... I wish I could remember the name!


BTW, LeAnne, I'm mailing your card to you, too!
Love ya & big birthday hugs!!!

Thanks for stopping by & please go check out the other Birthday cards made by the FAB designers below... plus you can still join in & make a card for LeAnne if you go to the main page...

Your cards are taking on new life! I love the style on this one and of course it is wonderful that it is for LeAnne's birthday!
(I had trouble with Typepad. I actually went live at 3AM trying to get it done, had to delete my post and do it over, then like I said it would not post it first on the page. I woke at 8:11 and got it fixed! It was my 500th post twice!)
