"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

POLKA~DOTTED MAISIE / ACLP #55


This image & patterned papers for this card were all digital! To see a quick tutorial on how I put it together using Microsoft Word, please see my tutorial over at The Pink Elephant.

I am starting to REALLY love digital stamps/papers... especially since I can hoard them & my husband is none the wiser! (Since they don't take up any physical space!) Another reason I like digital is you never run out of the paper! I've always had a phobia about using my pretty papers, because I'm afraid I'll use it up & then need it. NOTHING beats the real thing, but doing some digital is a super handy option!

I used a digi stamp from Lori Boyd, called Maisie, for this card. The paper is from a digital kit by Connie Prince called Sunbeams and Daydreams. I used this week's sketch challenge from A Crafty Little Place.

Happy Thursday!

You are so funny! BUT I feel the same way about paper. I don't think I could run out for a long time with what I have tucked away.
I love your card. She is so cute I love her dress. Lori Boyd is my favorite digi designer.

Gorgeous! Bet Lori loved those polka-dots! LOL! Can't wait to peek at your tutorial too. Thanks for the mention, I'm still coloring my digis but I'd love to to take that a step further and digitize my images. Really, a very wonderful card.

Smiles!
