"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


MAGIC SPELLS / RS #134 & D Rutter's New Release...

Back with another! We started a new sketch challenge on Saturday over at RetroSketches! This is one of Erin's, I just love it!!! I used Deena Rutter's Spooks digital kit. What a gorgeous Halloween kit! All of the elements on the card are form the kit, save the twine, buttons & epoxy dots - LOL! obviously THOSE aren't digital printouts!

Be sure to head over and play with us!

TO ERR IS HUMAN... / ADFD New Release...

Eek - I can't believe it took me this long to post this card from A Day For Daisies new release of Pretty Black Cats! We had a busy weekend... just not enough hours in the day! I used Deena Rutter's Every Little Bit: May Papers (digital) to "paper-piece" this adorable cat! I found the quote online and set it up.

Thanks for stopping by!



Good morning... still sick around here, but I did manage to make a card for this week's new Deconstructed Sketch. I used Papertrey Ink's Tiny Treats: Halloween. This set is so perfect for little tags!

Hope you can play along and check out all the other ladies gorgeous inspiration this week!

TEA FOR TWO / RS #133...

Hello! I have a card for this week's new RetroSketch! I love tea! I absolutely l-o-v-e hot tea, my FAVES are Darjeeling and Earl Grey. I love coffee, too - but I only drink 1, sometimes 2 cups in the morning, I end the day with 2 or 3 cups of hot tea! With sugarcubes - I have to have sugarcubes - 3 per cup.  Mmmmmm!

I used Papertrey Ink's Tea For Two and Tea For Two Additions. And you know I love "bright" colors and paper piecing!




HEARTFELT THANKS / DS #169 & CTD #310...

Hello!!! It's Thursday - I've survived both kids field trips this week, mowed the back yard (not so fun in 90 degree / extremely humid weather!)... now I just have cleaning, laundry and the front lawn to mow! I can't wait for the weekend!

We have a new sketch this week over at The Deconstructed Sketch! I decided to play along with the gorgeous colors at Color Throwdown, and grabbed an old stand-by from Papertrey Ink that I thought would be perfect - Wreath for All Seasons

Hope you can play along and check out all the other ladies wonderful inspiration this week! 

Thanks for stopping by!


Hello! Here's a card for this week's colourQ Challenge! I just love this palette! I used a new set from Sweet Stamp Shop - Coffee Town!




Hello!!! Did you have a great day? I was busy with chores all day - fun! For this week's RetroSketch, I used a cute new set from Sweet Stamp Shop, Baby Town. Isn't it adorable??? I love it! I thought the colors and papers for this would be perfect for either a boy or a girl.

See you later!


I BELIEVE IN YOU / ADFD September Club Kit...

Hi there! It's Friday, can I hear a WOOHOOOOOO?!? This has been a long one - so happy to be able to relax the next couple days! Although I do have laundry to wash, banana bread to bake, and probably a half million other things to get sorted... but hey - I won't have to drive the 40 miles round trip taking the kids to and from school! Yay for that!

We are featuring the September Club Kit over at A Day For Daisies, and today I used Flower Maiden 2. What a sweet, gorgeous girl!


Big hugs,


LUCKY DUCK / DS #168...

Good morning! We have an awesome new sketch this week over at The Deconstructed Sketch - sweet and simple! I found an image from A Day For Daisies that I had printed a while back called Ducks in a Row, and cropped it for my main panel. The background was spot embossed and then I sponged over it a little with ink. My sentiment was handwritten.

Hope you can play along and check out all the other ladies wonderful inspiration this week! 

Have an amazing day!


PULL UP A CHAIR Hybrid Card / D. Rutter New Release...

Wow, where did the day go? I'm finally getting my card posted for this week's new RetroSketch. I loved Kasia's original card, she stamped a black image onto newsprint, I decided to experiment with  that idea and added a coral digital stamp onto this cute paper. I went back over the image a little bit with Copics to add a touch of shading. I used Deena Rutter's Every Little Bit : Dwell Collections.
