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."

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

EVERYTHING is already screaming CHRISTMAS. Stores are already stocked and decked out with Christmas decor. Music is playing and the Christmas commercials are all starting. Toys, Toys, Toys! I was so excited for Thanksgiving and turkey. The smells and the beautiful colors of Fall. Are we skipping that this year?? Christmas is my most favorite holiday. It is a celebration of the birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I enjoy everything about it .. but it is turning more and more commercial every year and becoming more materialized. That makes me sad. I will still wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate. If you see me walking through the mall or walmart with my fingers in my ears singing LA LA LA LA !!! You will know why ;)!

I got to play with my new glorious skin white copic ((I will have to add to my collection after trying one. They are great!!! )). Carol also sent me Christmas Red Stickles ... Bella has neveah looked betta! :o). I used my snowflake CB folder and heat embossed some of the snowflakes with an embossing pen and polysparkle embossing powder. It was my first attempt but i like it a lot and will try it again. I also added the polysparkle to the green tree branches. The rest of my image was colored with my bic makrers. I still love those :o).


  1. Those stickles are the perfect touch! You are right, she has nevah looked betta! Adorable card!

  2. Heather, she sure does look stunning! And I have some copic but have a hard time using them but would love to try this skin color copic (you have to email me the deets).

    And, yes I do love this time of the year and it does seem like we're skipping Thanksgiving this year...LOL!

  3. Hey! I La-la-la-la'd my way through Walmart today! I couldn't believe it when I walked in to see a floor to ceiling Christmas Tree and heard Christmas music overhead!! Sheesh! We haven't even taken the pumpkin off the front porch!
    Anywwooooo! I LOVE your Bella card! She looks fantastic, and I love that ribbon idea.. I really have to try that... sometime! And good tip with the CB folder! Happy Stamping, my dear!

  4. WHAT? You mean we still have thanksgiving? Huh? Hobby Lobby puts their Christmas stuff out in JULY. CRAZY!

    Love your card! That embossing is neat-o!

  5. Wow Heather, what a gorgeous Bella christmas card, very chic. Love it. Hugs Linda x
