"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


OUR LITTLE FAMILY / DHD January Blueprint #3...

Here's a quick page of Jeff & the kids and I from Mother's Day... I kept meaning to scrap it & kept putting it off! When I saw this blueprint from Design House Digital's January Blueprint Challenge, I decided it was time! This was my first time playing with a template, and this challenge. Of course you know me... I had to change it a little - lol!

The digital kit is from Jen Allyson, it the Design 365 June Kit - love the papers & colors so much!
The ric rac, photo ribbon wrap & buttons are from another Jen Allyson kit, Vanity Fair Persimmon.

I may just have to print this & hang it!



Here's the tote I made.... it only took a few hours! My mom is begging for one & she hasn't even seen this one yet - lol! This image is a custom photo stamp from A Day for Daisies. Tammy will take your favorite photo and turn it into a work of art! And as you can see the creative possibilities are endless!!! Next I think I may print it on watercolor paper and paint it to hang... so stay tuned!

This tote was so fun to make! I digitally paper pieced the image, printed it on dark fabric transfer paper from HP & ironed it on! Then I sewed on some trim & buttons... easy peasy! If you get a custom stamp from Tammy and are interested in having a paper-pieced tote like this one, send me an email...

I'm entering this into the challenge from Just Add Ink again!

Have an awesome day!


Happy Saturday! I'm so excited, not only do we have sun, we also have a high today of 68 degrees!!! YAY! After naps, we'll be heading to the park to play! This card is for the latest Unscripted sketch, you'' have to play along with us...

This image is called Sprout, by Mo Manning. It's included with the "Help for Katie" bundle available at Jak Heath's blog. I FINALLY got out my sewing machine this morning (first time ever that I've used it - my mom started to show me how & then ended up just sewing herself - lol). The sentiment is from Elegant Friendship at my little shop the Wax Fruit Company!

Back in a few with a special project!


LIGHT OF MY LIFE / ADFD New Release & JAI #53...

O-H M-Y G-O-S-H !!!

Do you see this?!? You can have a treasured photo turned into a work of art at A Day For Daisies! Click here! This would look so great printed and framed, and wouldn't it be cool to have one done of a Christmas photo for next year's cards?

I loved this photo of my kids, and I'm so thrilled to have a digi stamp of it! Tomorrow I'll be posting a tote bag I made with it, too. You'll see it quite a few times, I guarantee! I'm entering this into the challenge from Just Add Ink, which was an inspiration photo of a sunflower. Perfect timing...

The sentiment is from my line at the Wax Fruit Company, Elegant Friendship.

Have a great night!


Good morning!!! We're having a big hop today ~ byLORIdesigns and Baby Bud Designs have joined up for some SUPER good times - lol! If you came here from Ildiko's blog then you are in the right track! If not, the hop order can be found at either BLD's or BBD's blog.

My card is very simple today... It's from byLORIdesigns, called Love You Friend. Only a spot of color in the paper pieced heart... not totally by choice really, but out of necessity!

Maisie, my 1 year old fell last night & I was at the emergency room with her until 10:30 or so... but she's just fine, no worries! I'm a very last minutes stamper... a "if it's due tomorrow, I'll make it today" kinda gal. Maybe I'll finish the coloring and re-post it tomorrow - lol!

The sentient is from one of my sets (sorry to be riding on your coat tails, Lori & Krista!), Big Little Words.

Now it's time to be on your way over to Jenn's blog!!! I'm sure she has something awesome for you today!!!

See you back here soon....


ALEX & NOAH / SSSC #101, PPCC #45 & ASC #34...

Good morning! This is Alex & Noah, with matching sentiments called Brothers Big & Small. Since I made a digi of a ragdoll Maisie and her imaginary sister, I should make an Alex digi, too! I try to keep things VERY even around my house. Kids are the first responders when it comes to calling things fair & square - lol! Plus Alex loves coloring, so he'll like this!

I used Karen's sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my little card, and also the theme of guys cards from Aly's Sunday Sketch and Penny's Paper Crafty anything goes challenge. Laos playing with the Southern Girls with dry embossing!

Have a great day!!!


MAISIE & OLIVIA / WFCo Release, PTW #52, CYP #42 & SSC...

Here's are two new stamp sets, Maisie & Olivia and Sweet & Sassy Sisters from the Wax Fruit Company! After talking to a friend until late last night, I thought "This is the closest thing I'll ever have to a sister"... and then I started hoping that Maisie can have a sister one day... if so I'll name her Olivia. Well, then I started drawing...

Maisie and Olivia are sorta 'updated' ragdoll sisters, I guess! I used the current Papertake Weekly sketch, and also themes from Stamp Something and Craft Your Passion for this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have an amazing day!!!

FUNKY FOUR {some more} / SR #56 & Act #66....

WooHoo!!! today begins the newest Stampin' Royalty challenge, and I used a favorite little set of mine from SU! called Funky Four. Which I should probably call 'Funky One' since I only ever use the mushroom stamps - lol!

I was thrilled to play along with Stacey and her amazing crew over at the Curtain Call... it's been a while! I loved her challenge this week, it was ... challenging!

I colored the stamp with Stampin' Write markers, easy peasy. Hope you'll get a chance to play along with these awesome challenges!!!

Be back soon...


HEART QUILT / WFCo Release, CP #99 & WMSSC #40...

The last few days I've been using sentiments from my new little digi shop, the Wax Fruit Company! I've always liked to doodle & since college and graphic design classes, have had quite a fondness for fonts!

This card features a new image, Heart Quilt, and a new sentiment set called Sew&Sew.

The sketch I used was from this week's Card Patterns - thanks gals!!! They are always so fun to play with! The quilt itself was digitally paper-pieced with Cosmo Cricket Early Girl paper from Jessica Sprague. Then I added a scallop of the actual Early Bird paper at the top. I'm also playing with Totally Gorjuss to use warm colors and anything goes over at Wee Memories (thanks Laurel for unknowingly jogging my memory - lol!)

Bye for now...
