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."

Orange you Sweet!!!

This card was made for 2 challenges. I found this sketch yesterday at the Inspirational Card Sketches blog and wanted to get a card in for it. I really loved the sketch and want to use it again. I used the bloggabella inspiration pic for the color scheme and overall feel. The pic was of a orangy and teal / green throw. My kids were painting with their watercolor today during school, so I snatched up one of their foam brushes and made my paper. While it was still wet I crumpled it and let it dry. I then tried to cut it :) and hold it steady to add to the card. I had to glue and hold it to the card because it wanted to "Not" stick. Then I paper pieced the cupcake with the same paper adding stickles to the icing. I wanted it to have a warm and soft feel like the throw but also sherbet yummy colors for the cupcake theme. I hope I somewhat captured that. I am off to get ready for tomorrow. Hope you all have a restful night. hugs!!!
