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."

End of Summer

It is the end of summer and all of the lovely mermaids are watching as all the beaches start to become more and more empty. Quite and peaceful and tranquil once again. Do they miss the loud noises as the people jog, play, swim? I am sure they will a little ;) but now they will have the beach and ocean back to explore, love and bask in all to themselves for a season or two.

I created this card with my Fresh Brewed Designs image called Cordelia in Sand. It seems to me that Cordelia is sitting on an island dreaming of what she wants to do next. She is always ready for the next adventure to pass her way. She is very artistic and sees beauty in everything.

I created this card using the current Eat Sleep Stamp sketch (which is over today :( I have been such a procrastinator lately... or just have not had much crafting time rather). I used handmade bg paper. I took the kids watercolor and went a little happy with it. I used these gorgeous shades of blue, green and purple and flicked it all over the paper (and myself *grin*) Then I brushed a large wide strip of the same colors. The paint has just a slight bit of glittery sparkles in it, though it is hard to see in the picture. I am also entering this card into the Oh Alice Challenge this week which is a BEAUTIFUL Blinged out teal and pink necklace.

Hope you all are having a wonderfully blessed week.

Don't forget, FBD Challenges start up again next Wednesday. I will also take that day to list all of our winners of the several prizes we are giving away :) So exciting!

The FBD Blog Hop and image release date has changed. We will not be having our release until September 8th. Can't wait for that!!! :D
