"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

FATHER KNOWS BEST / JAI #28 & CPS #178...


Aren't these just the best guy colors? I love them! It's also nice to make a "man"
card every once in a while - it's so hard to not "bling" it out, though!


I had about 20 minutes this morning to stamp, Maisie hasn't been respecting her bedtime or Mommy's stamp time lately... I chose to use the colors from Just Add Ink, and their 'manly' challenge and pair it with Card Positioning Systems' sketch... I'm a sucker for square cards!

The small strip of crimped paper was in my stash... all ready to go ~ just had to cut it down! I ran the card front through the BigShot with my SUPER FAVE Cuttlebug folder. I used a Copic to color in some of the leaves. All in all, just a really quick card!

Bye for now...
