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."

Reach For The Stars

I started making this card for the Hanna challenge on SCS last night. i was so tired by the time I got to the end I was going to sleep adding the stitching, so I decided to wait put it all together this morning. I actually had 3 images out and ready for this one. The first got messed up :) , so this is the one I ended up using. I am happy it turned out that way because I had a wonderful time making this card. I hand stitched the edge and added the seed beads along the way. She was colored with my bic markers, skin copics and a prismacolor marker in cool grey. I think my papers are by MME but I am not 100% sure of that. The burgundy paper was sprayed with pearlex to give it an extra shine.

I am also using this card for the challenge at Papertake weekly which is my favorite things. My favorite things included in this card are:

1) teaching (while homeschooling may be tiring and stressful and seem pointless some days, there are days that you can see them learning and light up .. and those are the days that make it worth it).

2) Hanna Stamps of course!

3)shimmer. I love shimmer on my cards.
