"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



Well, it's been a long day! After posting the latest RetroSketch, we immediately jumped in the car for a little road trip to Westville, Georgia. It took about an hour and 45 minutes, but it was a lovely drive through little towns. My parent's and nephew went, too. It's an 1850's "town", with over 30 buildings to explore. There were about 4 people in period clothing today, one driving the cart and a few more in and around house performing some task. One weekend a month they have more people who work in the pottery shop, the blacksmith, and other quilting & farming. We had a wonderful day!

For this card I used some old BasicGrey paper from my stash and one of my favorite sets from My Favorite Things -  LJD Cheerful Blessings

Big hugs!

What a lovely card!! Love the pp you used and your layering. Great take on the challenges!

We have a town like this about an hour away from us. It is Sturbridge Village and a replica of an old New England Village just before the time of the Industrial Revolution. I love visiting these types of places. They are so fun!!
