"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

THANKFUL / ST 11.18.10...


Ahhhh, here's one more I missed the deadline on... actually 2 deadline, but who's counting?!?



After working on this digital LO for almost 2 weeks, I finished it today. Every time I thought I was finished, there just seemed to be something 'off' about it. It's what I'm most thankful for - my family. There's Jeff & the kiddies, my mom & dad dancing, my grandparent's, and my brother Aaron and his wife (of a few weeks!) Tenille. I am so lucky and blessed to live in the same town I grew up in, with my WHOLE family. We share so many wonderful memories on an ongoing basis.... who could want anything more than that?

The majority of this LO was done with the digital kit, Give Thanks by Sara Schmutz over at Design House Digital. Their current sale ends tonight, so you shoudl at LEAST pop over & take a peek if you're into digi scrapping!

Bye for now...


HOLLY BERRY FAIRY / CP #91 & SMC #34...


Here's a quick card I made last Friday and didn't have time to post until now.... This sweet image os over at A Day For Daisies, called Holly Berry Fairy.




I used the CPS sketch that was "ending" Friday night & the challenge at Sew Many Cards to use red & green.

It's hard to tell, but she has glitter on her wings. Don't forget there is still time to enter the current challenge over at ADFD... you can find the challenge as well as a freebie to play along with, HERE.

Thanks for looking,


VINTAGE ORNAMENTS (and additions) / CQC #61 & Mojo #167...


HAPPY COLOURQ TUESDAY!!! It's a rainy day here & our server went down at work, so I had to wait til lunch to post this...




Besides colourQ, I played along with the Mojo sketch this week. I've had this stamp set by Papertrey for months, Vintage Ornaments, and finally got to use them - YAY! Sorry this is so short, back to work I go....


GRATEFUL / CQC #60 & 2S4Y #66...


Well, evidently I forgot to post this last week - OOPS! Too many things going on I suppose....




Although the deadline has past, this card was based on Laura's sketch #66 over at 2 Sketches! Also used was colourQ # 60...

BIRD RIDE / ADFD Release Day & Mojo #166...


It's new release day at A Day For Daisies - YAY!!! I went a little out of my element with these papers... but I figured a whimsical image needed whimsical papers - lol! This image is called Bird Ride - I love it! You can find it here.





Here are the new release images, as always new releases are on sale TODAY ONLY for 25% off!!!



So NOW, we are headed out for the lake... oh yeah, I used this week's Mojo sketch, too! Tweaked a little of course!

See you tomorrow!!!

KYLEE PUDDLE JUMPER / CP # 194...


Here's another for tonight... our plans to leave for the lake tonight were all for naught - we were too tired to pack and make the hour drive! We'll be going in the morning, though - YAY! This little cutie Rylee, by Lori Boyd, was retrofitted for Christmas by the addition of the giant candy cane!




I used the Card Positioning Systems sketch this week, changed around a little bit - lol! In the slice pic at the top you can see the stickles on the candy cane, but not so much on the big picture.

The accessories set, Sweet Treats that has the candy cane is here, and Rylee is here.

Bye for now...


JACK WAITING...


Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hope your day is filled with family, friends and lots of good food!

I loved this image of Mo Manning's from the moment I saw it... this little guy is just SO SWEET!


This is a quick post.... I just got back from mass and now have to finish the mashed potatoes and deviled eggs I started before I left!

You can find the image here!

By for now...

Have a great night!

TEAM WORK / ADFD #6, STR #36, PTW & CCH #41...


HAPPY ADFD FRIDAY! That's right, we have a brand new challenge for you over at A Day For Daisies, "Attitude of Gratitude". The twist is to design your own sentiment of thankfulness for your card - how FUN!!!






I just love this little image - if you can't tell, I've been VERY into pumpkins this year! When I thought of this challenge, I knew I wanted to use this image, Team Work from A Day For Daisies. I love these little guys SO MUCH! When I tried to come up with a sentiment, I thought of this little prayer from when I was a kid:

Child's Prayer of Thanks

Thank you for the world so sweet.
Thank you for the things we eat.
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for everything.

As I typed it in, I thought it could almost look like a page from a child's prayer book, so I went with that- something simple with a touch of vintage! I think I might make a bigger one & frame it for Alex's room!

Here are the other challenges that influenced:
Shabby Team Room - What are you thankful for?
Papertake Weekly - Autumn colors
The Crazy Challenge - Thank you or Thanksgiving

Have a great day!!!

SEASON'S SWEETINGS / Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop...


I'm so sorry if you arrived here hoping to find a Thankful/Thanksgiving card... I remembered the sketch this time & forgot the theme... I just realized there was a theme about 5 minutes ago when I downloaded the badge for the hop... sorry!



I guess you could say this is just another casualty of me & the kids being sick... my brain matter was sneezed out days ago - lol! Anyways, I used the darling singin' cuppy from Season's Sweetings since I was dying to use this cute music paper from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly. He has glitter all over his head, but I know you can't see it.

There are plenty more amazing projects to see... and they probably used the right theme!

Thanks for hopping by...



NORTH POLE EMPLOYEE / Mo's Dream Team Hop & C4C #63...


YAY - it's HOP DAY over at Mo's Dream Team! If you've arrived from Mina's lounge of lovely~ness, you're in the right place! You can start at the beginning by going to the Dream Team blog...



For my card I used one of the North Pole Employees, from a set of 2 by Mo Manning. You can find these cute little guys here. The hostess with the most~ess this month is Jak, and she wanted us to "distress" away! Your next stop is Lori's blog... you're sure to be wowed by her amazing talents!

I'm also playing along with Crazy 4 Challenges with this Christmas themed card.

Bye for now... have a super swell time hopping!
