"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

CHERRY BLOSSOM / RS #1...


Good morning! Today is the day - the FIRST ever retrosketches challenge! I'm so excited! I have teamed up with Jackie, Lori and Kasia - ladies who make fabulous cards with fabulous structure, to bring a new sketch challenge each Saturday! We're going to rotate, so each week will feature a different DT members sketch!

Today's sketch is mine, from a card I made a few weeks ago. I re-made it today with the image Cherry Blossom, from the Wax Fruit Company.


Here's the sketch from today's retrosketches challenge~ hope you'll come play with us!


Bye for now...

Arielle this is very cool. I love the way you colored and cut your image.
How are you? Have any of the storms hit close to you? I have been thinking a lot about you lately and hopping all is well in your neck of the woods.
I get you email every day and see all your wonderful cards. I don't leave comments like I should but I am always enchanted by your wonderful cards.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Linda
