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."

2S4Y with Bonus

I actually thought too long about what to title this post and finally gave up when my husband stopped his Wii game and was asking what was wrong. Apparently I looked funny staring off into nothingness trying to think of a clever name that combined both cards, lol!! I am SO tired tonight. I went through my entire craft room / pantry / kids crafts / homeschool books... and so on .. today. I did not think it would take me but a few hours. Boy was i wrong! I got started around 10:30 and did not stop until around 4ish. UGHish! let me tell you, It was a nightmare! lol!!! but I am glad i got it mostly done. I would love to reorganize my stamps and all that wonderful stuff I have stashed in drawers and boxes ... but I honestly do not think my back or brain could take it!

I got a score it this week and got to use it today. I am a little sad seeing one side is starting to come unglued. I am going to email the lady I purchased it from in the morning and ask what to do. I am clueless about the steps to take when something like that happens. I opened it yesterday and thought it felt 'bumpy' and today in the light you could see the bubbles under the black grip mat :(. I did get to try it out a little with these cards. I think it will be a very handy little tool! This first card is for the 2s4y bonus sketch. I scored the paper for the flower in an acordian fold, made 2 fans and glued them together. I taped them to hold them in place while they dried... but like a dummy put the tape on my lower lip, ripped it off with half of my lip attached, lol... and freaked! DUH! that did not go on the card mind you ;).

I had been thinking for a while how I wanted to make this card. I was going to make a black oval with a grid and add a butterfly to it. I found this already cut oval in my stash today and thought I would do the same with it. As I started my first row of lines the grid for the butterfly started changing in my head. It started looking like a fish .... then I remembered these punched ( a year old? ) hearts I had in my stash. I got them out, played around and it just grew from there. I am so happy with her. She makes me smile and made my whole day of cleaning worthwhile, lol! All of my papers (minus the fishy) are from my cafe mom secret sis package my beautiful friend Carol sent me. They were all double sided and it was SO hard to choose which to use.

My coffee is brewed and my spine feels like it is going to give up on me any second now, so I am going to relax on the couch a bit before I go to bed. Thanks for visiting with me today. I hope to be back tomorrow with another post. IF not please come back Saturday to see my first card submission to the Hanna Stamps guest DT call. I would love to see what you think, AND my card was made with a new Sophie G. so you will not want to miss seeing her :).

Good night, sleep tight! :)
