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."

What does S.S.S. stand for you might ask? They all have to do with the cards I am sharing with you today. The Sketch (for Inspirational Card Sketches), Spots and Stripes (for Papertake Weekly).
I will share with you my Sketch first. Dawn has yet again knocked my socks off with this gorgeous sketch! I LOVED working with it. I chose to use my newly released snow buddy image called Kiss ME!!! for this card. I think they are just too sweet. His cheeks are chalked with a bright pink, but the light outside washed it out and you can no longer see him blushing :(. Oh well, at least you can imagine it, right? I ran my burgundy paper through my cuddle bug using the swiss dots folder. My image is colored with prismacolor markers, a blue copic and glossy accents on the boots. I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch to create the wreath.

My second card is for Papertake Weekly. I am so honored to be a guest designer there and to have met some wonderful new friends! Thank you for having me Dawny. It has been wonderful!!! The challenge this week is to use stripes and spots. I have been wanting to play with my Corny Family image again so this challenge was perfect! I used my prismacolor markers to color them. I cut the sweet little ghost out and popped him with a foam dot. I also covered him in ice stickles to really make him shine. The Moms hair screamed to be covered in fun flock. It looks much better in person. The little spiders were cut using my cricut. I thought it would be fun to give them all mismatched (or mickmacked as my kids say) eyeballs. The sent is from a set by Martha Stewart.

I am also submitting this candy corn to the Cute Card Thursday : which is Candy Corn Challenge (or a sweet treat :) )

I really enjoyed making these cards this week. I hope they make you smile. Be sure to check out both challenges and all of the AMAZING design team creations.
