"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

FOR like EVER / Deena Rutter New Release...

There is a new release by Deena Rutter over at Pixels and Company, Count on Me. I linked each of the images below to the shop page.

This layout is interesting, it's a picture of Jeff and I when we started dating 10 years ago -LOL! I found it in my emails. The image quality was low, so that's why it's small. But, when I print the page it will be at least 2 inches wide... that's not so bad! The text is about our first date.


Big Hugs,


PUPPY LOVE / RS #48...

It's me... I'm still alive - LOL!  I've been kinda busy (as seen below), how come no one told me when I quit working to stay home it would take me TWICE AS LONG to do HALF AS MUCH?!? How is that even possible?

This card is for the current RetroSketch,  and uses the set The Gang from The Alley Way Stamps.


Okay... so this is where I have been... cleaning my crafting area. Honestly you can't tell from the first pic just how perfectly horrible it had gotten, trust me, the first image doesn't look SO bad....... but had you seen it all (the entire dining room table and the entire length of my desk!) you'd know it was time. In the pic on the right I am (re)organizing my dies on the dining room table.

Thank you SO MUCH for visiting me!


LOVE IS IN THE AIR / USSIS #195 & TAWS Be Inspired #20...

Good morning! I have a card for today's Unscripted Sketches - what a neat sketch! I went a little "outside the box" on this one - LOL! It's hard to tell, but the white heart is embossed with a woodgrain. I stamped the cute little birds from the set, Lighter Than Air, from The Alley Way Stamps onto the pink paper - once I colored them you can't even tell!

This also goes along with the inspiration pic for the TAWS Be Inspired Challenge!


Thanks so much for stopping by!


Well, I almost forgot - I have one more card for today! We started a new challenge over at the Dilly Bean blog to use "Metal Accents"! I used the super adorable image, Penelope & Birdcage.... she is so sweet!!! I added some stickles to the red flower brads. This embossing folder is a new one I got from Lifestyle Crafts, you KNOW how much I love embossing folders!

Nighty night!


LOVE ALWAYS / TAWS Be Inspired #20 & SS #138...

I have a card today for The Alley Way Stamps' Be Inspired Challenge - what a fun photo! I used the heart border from Framed and stamped is in various shades of pink and red, and the sentiment is from Talk to Me.


I also played along with Sentimental Sundays to use "Negative Space".

Thanks so much for stopping by!

"DOES THIS DRESS MAKE MY..." / Hybrid Card...

Hello! Here's a quick little hybrid card I made using some digital journaling cards from Deena Rutter called Count on Me Journal Cards. I added the type to the cards in Photoshop and then printed and trimmed them out. After layering them and adding a strip of washi & a button - voilà!

Big hugs!



Good morning! We have a brand new sketch for you over at The Deconstructed Sketch today - I love it! I used my set, Lighter Than Air from The Alley Way Stamps - again! This balloon is so much fun, especially with my cloud dies!

Be sure to check out the other ladies' inspiration, as well & play along!

Big hugs!

SMILE Purse / Hybrid Project...

I found this cute little Handbag Gift Bag template online & used Deena Rutter's new Count on Me digital papers and This & That digital elements v.1 to make it! These are currently $1.00!!! You can't beat that with a stick! I printed out some "extra paper" to cut with my PTI flower dies and added a little button!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

COUNT ON ME / Hybrid Card...

Here's a card using a new set of digital "brushes" from Deena Rutter called Count on Me.... which are FREE over at her new shop, Pixels & Company! The papers are from her, too, but this set won't be released until next week - so stay tuned! (And be sure to go over an grab this awesome freebie!)

Thanks for stopping by!

HELLO / CQC #173 & RS #47...

Good morning! This week has been a bit frustrated by computer problems... but I think they are fixed now - fingers crossed! This card is for this week's colourQ Challenge, also using this week's RetroSketch! Just a fun, fast C&S card! I did add some stickles to the centers of the flowers!
