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."

Beach Days!!!

I loved the sketch!!! I was so happy to find this blog, 2sketches4you, and challenge the other night. It is such a fun and interesting one.I have not used my beachy or summer themed stamps much, so it was my goal to in this card. My inspiration was the blue scrap paper I had in my drawer. I embossed it with my cuttlebug then sanded the top to show through to the white core of the paper. I loved the look of it. My card is not quite what I expected, but I am warming up to it. I should have colored in the floatie, but I remember as a youngin' :) using a black inner tube to swim and play with. I just had to make Bella one!! I used my ranger embossing powders again as well as paper pieced the float to her. I watercolored the background, added glitter and seashells to the sand for texture. It was a fun card to make. I hope you all like it. :) Good night.
