"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

Good morning, hope you're having an awesome Saturday so far! We've been lazing around watching Phineas & Ferb and Scooby Doo! As soon as I saw this week's Unscripted Sketch, I immediately thought of this set, Say Cheese by Lawn Fawn! How fun is this? I have always been a Polaroid fanatic, so I just HAD to have this set!!! I threw on a piece of polka dot washi tape behond the image to add a bit of interest!

Bye for now & hope you'll play along...


Hello! Have you seen the new release from A Day For Daisies that came out today? I love these gorgeous images! The set is called My Hats - so elegant and sophisticated! One thing I always love about Tammy's images are the beautiful lines of her work and the delicate expressions on their faces. They have such a nostalgic and vintage look! For this card I used Lady Black Feathers - that big plume is awesome!

Be sure to head over to the ADFD blog to see the other DT's inspiration and also check out the current challenge!
