And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

FBD201604 - New Freshly Brewed Challenge

It's time for a NEW CHALLENGE
This style / technique is one that I don't often do myself, therefore I didn't really know
WHAT to call it and think I confused my DT, which I often do, so they
are used to it... sigh. (I'm sorry ladies <3 p="">

This week I want to see your CAS Cards. 
We are looking for your ONE LAYER CREATIONS.
You are limited to your card base + one more layer. 
So here is where I add confusion. 
1 card base and one more layer... that's it. 
If you have an image, then it can be cut and popped but not masked. 
You can add one layer of embellishments but they have to be on the base...
not on the image... Does that even make sense? 
Well, you know I am pretty easy on y'all when it comes to the 'rules'.
If you tried, that's good enough for me. 

I used the FBD Digi

I hope to see you play along with us this week!

Have a very happy and blessed day.

What is your favorite season?

This week we want to see a card featuring
your FAVORITE season. 

I don't really have a FAVORITE season. I have something 
I love about them all. I love most things about winter. 
Hot cocoa, coffee, scarves, boots... but I don't like it when it's 
TOOOO COLD like it has been the past few days (in the 30's.. I'm a baby)

For this card I used the Fresh Brewed Designs

I, once again, used the Splitcoast Stampers TWISTED CARD Technique. 
Such a fun card fold, don't you think?

Come play along with us this week HERE

Have a happy and blessed day!

FBD201601 Challenge - PURPLE

Good Morning! 
We have a fun new challenge for you over at
This week we want to see you create using the color:

I made two birthday cards using the Splitcoast Stampers TWISTED CARD Technique. 
Both cards feature the FBD Digital Stamp
The inside sentiment is a SU rubber stamp. 

This card style was so fun to create. 
The pocket to the right is big enough to hold a gift card, money, 
tag, or small bookmark. You could even put in a tea bag or small candy for Valentines Day. 
Or ... whatever else your creative mind can think of to add!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today. 

I hope you have a beautiful and blessed week ahead. 

Hugs ~

Pretty Pink Snowman

Happy Wednesday. 
This is my post number 2 for the day. 
To see my elegant black and teal Christmas card featuring a

I am back today to remind you to come play along in our FRESHLY BREWED CHALLENGE. 
We are celebrating with an ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS theme for the
entire month!!! WOOOO HOO!!!

I created some fun and simple Christmas cards for my mom's
Chemo nurses at MUSC. She had her LAST CHEMO last Thursday (Dec 3) 
and I am SO HAPPY that she is done!!! PARTY TIME!

This card features the FBD Digital Stamp: STRIPED SNOWMAN 

I made each nurse the same card and paired it with a bit of 
smelly goodness. Who doesn't love BBW Lotions? 

I hope it made them smile. There isn't anything that can be done to 
express to them how thankful I am for them. They were always so caring, 
loving, attentive and so much more. One couldn't have asked for better doctors
and nurses! I thank God every day for taking care of my mom the way he did
through all of this!

Be sure to stop by Freshly Brewed Challenges and play along in our
Challenge ends December 29th!

Have a very happy and blessed day.

Pretty, Sparkly Christmas

I am usually drawn to BRIGHT and BOLD colors for
my Christmas creatiuons. Well. Any creation really ;)
But this card is a bit different. I was going through my scraps 
searching for something red or pink and a bold pattern to show through the
die... but nothing was working for me. I found some scrap black poster board
left over from a dance kids school project and thought "hmmm..."
to create a gorgeous top layer... now to find a background. 
I held this up to SO MANY different patterned papers. 
Starting with BOLD, of course. I held it up to every red I had.
Dots, snow.. you name it. Then I stumbled upon these tiny, teal Christmas trees. 
YES! I found it!!! 

This patterned paper is from THE PAPER STUDIO Snow Day Stack. 

I then added some DS tape, glitter, ribbon, rhinestones, a fun mini ornament and the
heartwarming sentiment from Word Art Wednesday. 

You can get this word art FREE by going HERE
You will find BEAUTIFUL creations, inspiration, encouragement, and more

I hope you have a beautiful and blessed week ahead!

Twisted Card - Christmas Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday everyone!
I am back with another fun Christmas creation for your viewing pleasure. 
At least I hope it's pleasurable :)

I found this fun twisted card fold at SCS a few weeks ago. 
I thought to myself, "Self, it's been a long time since you've tried a new technique. 
Why don't you give it a go?"
So I did...
And you can too! Check out the tutorial HERE

And that's it! A fun little card with a pocket for a gift card, tag, bookmark, 
lollipop or anything you can fit in it :) 

Thank you for stopping by!

hand knit by my sister.
