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."

You're special to me

I made this card for the sugar bowl challenge. I had to search the images I had been RAKed with to see which were Sugar Nellie's. I just ordered my first 2 yesterday, but feared they would not be in in time for this challenge. I ordered Time for Apple Pie and Country Girl . I cant wait to get them. I love this image too. I think she is SOO sweet!!! I honestly have never used so many layers on a card, so it was a bit intimidating. I used 2 sheets of double sided fiskars papers by heidi grace. The chipboard is by heidi grace as well. I colored her with my crayola color pencils and OMS. It was so light and soft, i felt it needed something. to carry on with the soft theme, i added some pearl ex powder to her shirt and hat, then dipped my versamark pen into a few different pots to add shimmer to her hair, flowers and clothes. This sketch was really fun and I think I will use it again for a few special Valentine cards I plan to make. Hannah loves this one so much, ((she says it is the best card I have ever made ;) )) so this one is going into a frame for her room. Thanks for the challenge.
