"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

NEWSPAPER FLOWER / CQC #48 & CPS #182...


It's Tuesday - you know what that means!!! Another colourQ challenge...



I combined today's colourQ with the simple sketch over at Card Positioning Systems.

Maisie has just started screaming her head off... so I better go! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Okay, I'm back... I made this flower from newspaper. I die cut 4 layers of newspaper in 3 sizes of the flower nestability, crumpled them & spread them back out, adhered them with a Stampin' Up! Build-a-Brad, and then used a tole painting brush to add the colors.

Maisie is still trying to get her next two teeth in... and Alex started preschool today! Here's a glimpse of them 'playing'...


See you tomorrow!
