"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


LOVE BIRDS / RS #5 & CTD #185...

Good morning! We have an awesome new sketch for you today over at RetroSketches, by Laurie! You're going to LOVE it!

I paired it with the current Color Throwdown, aren't those colors gorgeous together? So sweet! This set is from Papertrey Ink, called Love Birds. I'm not sure I've ever inked it up, but it seemed perfect for this card!


I'm off for a pedicure in a couple hours and then we're driving a half hour to the mall so the kids can see the Easter Bunny - YAY! Hope you have a great weekend!

The other ladies projects are awesome, too - go check them out, just click on their pic!


Thanks so much for dropping by this morning...


BEFUDDLED mixed media canvas / ADFD #40...

Good morning again! This is a little different for me, these days. Years and years ago I was a painter, sculptor and printmaker. I've had a jones to paint lately after seeing the gorgeous "she~art" that people have been doing. Once I located my paints, I realized just how long it had been - they were all dried up - LOL! Luckily Michael's had an awesome sale last weekend and I bought new ones. 

So with today's release at A Day For Daisies of "Bewildered", I decided to just go for it! The canvas is 3" squared. Yes, very small! The challenge at ADFD is to use found paper, so the ADFD digi (called Bewildered C) is printed on a check duplicate and the background is from the newspaper. You can just see it peeking through. The stamps are from Papertrey Ink & Stampin' Up!.

I have to say, I've missed painting! So stay tuned - you'll be seeing more of these mixed media canvases!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!


Good morning! Today's new challenge is up over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog ~ the theme is Skulls & Skellies! I used a new image from Megan called Super Skull and Flowers, SO NEAT! I will probably give this to some friends on Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.Of course, that is if I can remember in November where it is - LOL!


I used this past week's RetroSketch!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

We're taking the kids to see the Easter Bunny this weekend, and they assure me they are both going to sit on his lap. Jeff starts a new shift next week, I can't wait! He'll be home with us at night and go in for 3rd shift... so happy to have him home in the evenings, I can't wait (I already said that, didn't I?)!

We have a brand new challenge for you today over at Dilly Beans - PARTY!!! I found these 2 images that I just had to use together, Balloon Girl and Cupcake Girlie! The 3 strips on the left side of the card were rolled up a little, I wish they showed up better! They remind me of the things you blow at parties.... what are those called? Anyways... I hope you have a great day! And be sure to go check out the other designers' work!

BIRDIE BLOOM / ADFD New Release...

Good morning! It's finally FRIDAY!!! I'm so excited! Tammy's new release at A Day For Daisies is just amazing today! She's been overrun by birds lately on her farm, so obviously the inspiration is flocking around her - LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
