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."

Welcome & THANK YOU for joining the Busy Beauties today! If you are arriving here from Annita's Blog, you are hopping right along. To start at the beginning, please visit Carolyn’s blog.

We are super excited to introduce a new set of images (available for purchase on Saturday, March 6) and also share some news! Coming Soon...The BUSY BEAUTIES BLOG! We are hoping to have all the kinks worked out and launch the blog next month, but we just couldn’t contain our excitement and want to get our feet wet now with OUR FIRST EVER BUSY BEAUTIES CHALLENGE! Our theme is “GO GREEN!” and the challenge is to use GREEN as the predominate color on your card/project. The challenge is open from now through WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17TH (St. Patrick’s Day)! BBB images are of course encouraged & preferred, but not required for this one. Since our official blog is not yet ready, Catherine will be hosting the challenge on her blog, where you can find all the nitty-gritty details and link your creations. (She's the last stop of the hop, so just keep bopping along.) And since this is our premier challenge, there is a tangible prize package for the winner:

The PRIZE includes: Basic Grey Origins 6x6 pad; 4 yards of American Crafts satin ribbon, 1 yard of May Arts striped twill ribbon, 1 jar of Shimmerz.

I had so much fun creating with the new Busy Beauties images. As usual, they are just so lovely and fun. The first few cards are featuring the new images inspired by Carolyn's nieces. I bring to you:

The prize for these winners is their choice of 3 Free BBB Images! There will also be a GRAND PRIZE of 5 Free BBB Images (winner's choice) drawn from the hoppers who leave comments on *all* the DT blogs. So be sure to leave some love all along the way!
