"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



Jeff and I went to one of my favorite places on Monday, Flip Burger Boutique. Richard Blais, a finalist on Top Chef opened it in Birmingham, AL. Luckily that's where Jeff reports to the VA Hospital a few times a year, so we usually try to go when we're up there. 

I had a Key Lime Pie shake, a tuna tartare burger and we shared hand cut fries with smoked mayo, and a chilled Thai green bean salad! YUMMMM!

This layout is for Design House Digital's 1 Kit 4 Ways... this collaboration Me Time and Me Time 2 is SO AWESOME!

MUMMY & SPIDER / DB #41...

Hey - I'm back again! We have an awesome new challenge starting today over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog - Black+White+Any other single color! I chose orange! I love orange!

This adorable image is called Mummy & Spider Love Candy - it is definitely one of my favorites! I used dotted paper and washi tape for the little banners. Before I printed the image, I digitally paper pieced some tiny newsprint onto the mummy. It's hard to see, but there are stickles on the lollipop. The Halloween twine is from Endless Inkabilities.

Hope you'll go check out the other DT samples and play along!

THANKS / ADFD #52 & CFCC68...

Hello! We have a new release and a new challenge over at A Day For Daisies... School Days! The challenge is to Break Out Those School Supplies - use any type of school supply on your project!

 I printed my image on notebook paper! I wasn't sure how my Copics would work with it, but it turned out pretty good I think. The sentiment was made using Alphabet Soup by The Alley Way Stamps.

I am also playing along with CAS-ual Fridays - FUN FUN FUN!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

BUNCHES OF LOVE / TAWS #10, iSpy #31 & PDCC #147...

Happy Friday!!! The new release are in the store over at The Alley Way Stamps - and they are AWESOME!!! Here I have used Awesome Blossom for my sample for both the iSpy Sketch Challenge and the TAWS Be Inspired Challenge!

The vase and the petals are paper pieced. I used a white gel pen to add the highlight.

I loved the colors of this week's Play Date Cafe.... I may use them again!

Be sure to go check out both the iSpy gals's cards AND the TAWS gals... and the PLAY ALONG!!!

Hello! Ready for a new RetroSketch?!? We have our August guest designer with us - Danielle Daws, one of my fellow DT teamies - I used both of the monster sets from The Alley Way Stamps, Monster Madness and Monster Mash - LOVE THEM!!! I thought I would make this card to tuck in Jeff's bag sometime before he goes to work... something to remind him of me - LOL! I wish I had her hair, but that eyeball is creepy, huh? She kinda looks like a love monster stalker!

And this FAB sketch is based on this awesome card by Danielle, you can see it here! & be sure to hop over and see the other RetroSketch DT's cards!!!

Bye for now...



We have a new challenge up over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog - Hearts! I just love this little image - Sprocket Robot - isn't he sweet? Having a little boy - I love anything to do with robots, specially ones with cute little hearts on them!
