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."

I'm So Excited, and I just can't hide it!

For those of you who say I can not keep a secret .. well I did! A while back in November Courtney asked me to be her first guest designer for her set of stamps called Be Still. My card is featured on her blog as well. I was so shocked and so honored that she would have even thought of me I had to read it several times to even believe it. I may have even pinched myself. Poor Courtney, I probably drove her crazy with the "Who? Me? Are you sure? " emails :o). I love ya Courtney! Thanks for asking me to do this and for trusting me to design some projects for you. For those of you who do not know Courtney ((how could you not?? She is amazing!)) She was one of my very first blogger friends that God placed in my life. She has touched my heart in so many ways. She has been a prayer partner, encouraging, loving, giving, and there for me in more ways than she probably realizes. She is one of the sweetest and understanding women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

This set of stamps is amazing and you can find it here. Courtney drew this herself!!! Really!!! Isn't it beautiful? I was wowed by it but I was also a little intimidated at first on how to use it. I had been doing a lot of cute things, but this was so pretty and so serene. As soon as I got the set in my hands, I went to work and all the things I made fell together. I fell in love with this set very quickly. It is so versatile. The scriptures are so calming and encouraging. I knew that it would be one I would reach for many times. It is even on sale right now at 20% off!!! You cant beat that! I have been browsing Sweet and Sassy stamps a lot lately. I can't wait for some tax money to come in so I an snag a few!
Be sure to pick you up a set of these stamps! I promise you will not be disappointed!

Materials used:
sweet and sassy stamps, Be still
prismacolor pencils, oms
AC Patterned Paper
Basic Satin Ribbon
