"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

NEW IN TOWN? / PP #93 & LIM #65...


Good morning! I can't believe it's Wednesday already! I had the pleasure of inking up a Lawn Fawn set I got int he mail last week, Gnome Sweet Gnome! I love this set & I really love this flamingo! How fun!
I set the type for the sentiment, the font is Firefly, I think. I thought it would be fun to have an "old" and a "new" flamingo, I distressed the one on the right just a bit!


I played along with this week's Paper Players challenge, using ribbon, a square card and designer paper. I also played with the sketch from Less is More! Hope I don't get dinged for too many embellishments, but you know I just can't help myself - I HAVE to use buttons - LOL!


Bye for now & thank for stopping by!
