"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



WOOHOO~ don'tcha just love the Christmas season? Here's an easy project to try...

Luckily they extended the deadline for the Verve challenges... my internet was really slooooooow last night & Mr. Linky was nowhere to be found on the web... so here's my card for the Verve Blog Party challenge #5, and I combined it with this week's colourQ challenge!

I found a pattern of a stocking online, resized it in photoshop to be about 4x4" , and cut it out. The bottom part of the stocking is white cardstock that I first dry embossed using my Scor-Pal to get the diamond pattern. I then embossed the snowflake from Patterned Pines (I'm so lovin' that set!) in clear embossing powder, after which I sponged over with the different colors, and cut out using the stocking pattern. After being trimmed, I matted it with Gable Green. For the top, I ripped a sheet of white cardstock in half, then embossed it using an embossing folder... when I pulled it out I liked the torn edge, so I used that as the bottom edge of the stocking's top. SERENDIPITY!

When I attached the stocking to the base, I lined up where I wanted the gift card to go & then cut up the scraps of pop dots (what's left when all the dots are gone) to 'edge' the gift card. That way it slips in & out easily. Then I put a few more pop dots on the other areas & attached it. Lastly, I added the rhinestones! This will be perfect for Jeff''s niece's Christmas gift this year!

Have a great day & thanks for stopping in!
