"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

MERRY & BRIGHT / MM #17...


Happy Monday! It's Christmas again, LOL! Okay, it's NOT Christmas, obviously, but I can tell you this - I'll have all my cards ready waaaaay before it's here since I play every Monday with the Merry Monday Challenge! Today's sketch is both classic & versatile, so do yourself a favor and play along!!!

I used the light blub (heehee - my baby brother always called them "blubs") from the Paper Smooches set, Perpetual Bliss, to create a string of Christmas lights. I cut a piece of paper to block out the script "love" in the bulb, although it slipped a little and I got some of the edges of it inked onto the card. But then I thought they looked like highlights, so I didn't re-do it! I set the type and printed it on my white panel.


Here is the sketch for this week & the other Merry Monday ladies, I hope you'll go see them, too!
