"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 YOU / DS #115...

Good morning and happy Thursday! I have a little card today for the Deconstructed Sketch  - isn't this a fun one? These types of sketches are so great for using patterned papers! I was rifling through some of my printed digital images and found this cutie, Girl Holding Flower by Jellypark! I love her images, I really should color more of them up!

Be sure to head over to Deconstructed, see all the wonderful inspiration and play along with us!

Have an awesome day!!!!



I got to stamp for fun today - LOL! Well, it's FUN every time I stamp, so I suppose I mean I got to stamp a card that's not for an assignment! I also played along with some challenges, which is awesome! I used Stackem' High (I masked my card base with sticky notes to stamp the border) and Holiday Sparkles.

I played along with Dynamic Duos, the Fall-to Layout at Clean & Simple and Just Add Ink - YAY ME! You know I love challenges, and I am trying to get back to playing with my favorites!

Big hugs!!!
