"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

TRIO FLOWERs / CTD #104 & FTL #102...


It seems all this week by the time I've gotten the kiddos to bed (so small job!) my 'mojo' has left the building... she's usually there once I wake up, but by then I don't have time to play with her! Here's another quick lunchtime card...




I love the colors at the Color Throwdown this week, just awesome! And the Fall-to Layout is very inspiring this week as well!

This card is only 3x3" - really small! This card maybe took 7 miutes... but I'm starting to like the really simple cards these days! This is sorta my go-to style when I'm short on time. I probably could have kept the pierced lines straighter if I'd done them before I added the bling & butterflies... the guide kept slipping!

We have a busy weekend, Jeff has overtime & we have a family lunch-thingy tomorrow & then church on Sunday. Got Alex signed up for a little pre-school 2 mornings a week starting the first of September... he'll have so much fun! Maisie still has no teeth, but I know they're on their way...

Hope your weekend is awesome!

That is such a cute card! I love your interpretation of the sketch! Very creative. =) I totally hear you on the mojo... I think about crafting when I can't. Then when I can there isn't very much creative motivation. Weird!
