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 hope you have all had a nice day. It seemed to be warmer here today, maybe? Hope that trend stays a while!!! I was able to make this card tonight using my Country Girl Birthday image from Fresh Brewed Designs.

I colored her with prismacolor markers and skin copics. The cake is coated with tulip slick paint to make it look more 'real'. I have to admit, I have very little ... next to none .. experience with a sewing machine. This is the first time I have used the one my hubby got me for Christmas. I have a feeling my Hannah will use it more for making doll clothes than I will :). I did enjoy flinging my paper around and making a mess thought :D. I could not for the life of me keep it straight ... but really like the way it looks. Sortof has a lasso feel to it ... so it goes with the country girl feel, right?
OK, I am babbling!!! I really need my coffee :)
The kids are still a bit under the weather so to speak. They have terrible coughs. This is how they spent their afternoon ... until the fighting and screaming started.. UGH! Hope tomorrow will be much better. Poor babies :(

Have a great night!

Challenges for this card include:
Cupcake Craft: Going Girly
Mojo Monday Sketch
Scrap, Stamp, doodle: Celebrations
Crafty Creations: 3 textures


  1. This is a great card Heather! I think your sewing is fine. I bought a machine last year and I've barely used it. I'm considering taking a class this summer. It'll give me something to do with 4 months off school! Hope the children are feeling better!
