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."

A Bella and Back to School

I was awakened this morning just before 5 AM by my barking dog. She never does this .. and I am glad b/c she woke me up from a horrible dream. I let her out and tried to lay back down .. but knew I should take advantage of being up early to make a card since today would already be busy. We are heading out in a little while to get some homeschool books at a used book sale. I went last year and found a lot of cheap books. I know more about what I will need this year and am more prepared.

As for my card, I used my latte bella. I love her! I felt she was floating around in there so I added the brick background with my watercolor paint. I colored her in with my prismacolor color pencils and blended them with OMS. I added the black coffee stamp to the paper with a foam stamp and brilliance ink. The flower came in a RAK from my friend Cass. I thought it matched perfectly:). I used AC patterned paper and voila! you have a card :) Hope you all have a blessed day. Gill, I will make my coffee and fill you in on my 7 random things later today:). I am such a boring person .. pretty much what you see is what you get:) ... I will do some thinking:) lol.
