"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

BUG&ROO HILLIE / CQC #122 & CPS Day 2 - #166....


Good morning! Tuesdays are always busy around here! Hope your week is going great so far! My card for this week's colourQ is also combined with my byLORIdesigns Inspiration card, using this fabulous image by Hannah Boyd for her Bug&Roo collection. The image is called Hillie - isn't it adorable? I left the heart in the image white, since Hillie's not finished decorating her valentine yet!



The sketch is from Card Positioning System's 5th Anniversary Day 2.

    

Bye for now!

DAISY GIRL / SSSC #151...


Hello!!! It's as much of a Monday as it can be - LOL! Thought I'd pop over and put this post up super quick... I have another hour left in my workday. This image, Daisy Girl, is actually an embroidery pattern I found on the British equivalent of Etsy, called Folksy. Isn't she adorable? I LOOOOVED the long striped socks - super cute!

The same artist had a few other patterns, which I bought. The image comes in a pdf, but you can open those in Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop, you can still get it to where you can use it. 

Just open a blank Word document, open the pdf and enlarge the window the pdf is in as big as you can get it & then enlarge the pdf as big as you can get it, while still keeping the entire image in view. 

Click the button at the top of your keyboard that says "PrtScn" - which is Print Screen. After you click that, go back to the Word doc & click the "Ctrl" & "v" keys on your keyboard... which is a shortcut to paste. A pic of the entire screen (which includes the image in the pdf) should show up.



I also used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch... which I REALLY LOVE!!!!


Have a great day!

Today the we're showcasing the current Freebie Bundles over at A Day For Daisies!!! With every $16 dollar purchase you get a Freebie Bundle of your choice!!! And I think they are ALL adorable!!!

HYPNO EYE GIRL / DS #9 & CPS #252...


Good afternoon! We have a brand new sketch for you over at the Dilly Beans Challenge, the theme is "Freaked"! I thought this image, Hypno Eye Girl, would be perfect! She looks kinda "freaked" out, doesn't she?!? She's so sweet, though with her head tilted to the side in a melancholy way.

I usually pick out my papers before I color, but today I colored first. I found this Basic Grey paper, with it's subdued hues to act as "backup". If you get a chance come play along!


I based this card on the current Card Positioning System's sketch.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

I used some My Mind's Eye, Happy Go Lucky paper. One of the papers had the speech bubbles, so I just cut one out and popped it on. The ric-rac I found at Christmas over at Michaels - love the sparkle! What a fun card this was to make - all my favorite colors + buttons + cute image = HAPPY HEART!

Be sure to go see the other ladies cards - they're FAB!!!

FUNNY FACE / Sweet Shoppe Challenge...


Today my baby turned 2 years old! Maisie is one of those kids that is just an absolute joy. She is almost always happy, but if you cross her she makes the funniest little faces!  Recently she laid down on the coffee table and when I started clicking pictures, she began crunching her face up. I love watching her, she's so expressive!

I used the kit is Dream Wish Love, by Meghan Mullens. I love the color combination of this kit!


Have a great day!



CREATING / USSIS #141 & Sweet Shoppe Challenge...



Good morning! We have a new challenge for you over at Unscripted Sketches - I love this sketch - SO versatile! I decided to scrap a page with a picture that I love, that isn't very in focus! But I think it almost goes with the journaling of creating yourself (or rather letting God create you).... I'm out of focus because I'm still a work in progress!


This digi kit is Easy For You To Say by Lauren Grier. This layout is for a challenge over at the Sweet Shoppe to "Scrap a page about the person you want to create."

MAGICAL STORY / ADFD New Release...


There's a new release today over at A Day For Daisies... IT'S SO GORGEOUS! I know that I always say that - but in my defense - it's ALWAYS TRUE!!! Today's release is called Believe

I chose to use the image Magical Story, I thought it would use it for a journal! The journal was one I picked up on clearance, covered in canvas. So I digitally paper pieced the image, printed it onto iron-on transfer paper and ironed it to the journal! I added a few buttons and ribbon scraps and  voilĂ !

I'm entering this in a couple other challenges:
DYSU - pink!
Just Inspiration - inspiration pic of butterflies
Flutterby Wednesday - use something with wings

Thanks for stopping by!
