"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

HAPPY JULY 4TH / TAWS New Release Blog Hop & CQC #143...


Happy BEHIND THE ALLEY Sneak Peeks Hop Day!!! I am SO THRILLED to be a new member of The Alley Way  Stamps DT! If you arrived here to find yourself in the middle of the hop, please start at the beginning by going to the TAWS blog!

If you arrived here from Annette's blog, then you are on the right track! 

Knowing Annette, you got a big dose of fabulous! I used the new set, Alphabet Soup, which is just a perfectly sweet and a highly versatile addition to your collection! With this set, your design possibilities are endless!

For my card, I stamped a little swatch with the word "July" in alternating red/blue, and then held a template over it to see where I wanted to place my #4 die. I noticed a little empty space on one side, so I stamped a little star from the set Reel Time. The word 'happy' is from Jibber Jabber, which I used for a variation is font size.

My card colors are from the new colourQ challenge!
