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."

Pretty in Peach

Good Morning! Yesterdays hop was so much fun!!! The girls really rocked their cards .. so many jaw dropping beauties I tell ya!!! If you have not checked out the hop ... you STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET IN ON THE FUN!!! IT is all month long!!! WOOO!!! :) The hyperlinked hop list and newest MONTH LONG CHALLENGE can be found at the Freshly Brewed Challenge blog.

The challenge has to do with thanking those that do not get thanked enough. I know that here in blog world the ones who do not get thanked nearly enough are our DTs. There are so many card blogs and challenge blogs all full of wonderful, beautiful inspiring creations that SOMEONE MADE FOR US!!! They took time out of their schedule and day to create something to inspire and share with us. I notice at times even I do not leave a comment on the blogs thanking the DT ... so that is my new goal! :) One group of ladies I want to thank is the Sweet Sketch Wednesday team. Those girls really have a strong team ... they are well organized and caring and always creating inspiring weekly projects to share with us all. While I served my short term on their team, I got to be a part of that wonderful bond they have. Always commenting and always so kind. I falled short when I was on the team, not having all the time to comment and do things as I had planned, so I decided to step down. Even still, they were all so loving and supportive and always so kind. So here is a BIG THANK YOU to the SSW gals!!!

This card is featuring my newly released image called Marina with Pearl
I colored her up with my prismacolor markers, added some stickles and some liquid pearl paint with a splash of glass beads. The flower also has the liquid pearls, some skittles and glitter. The paper is all a mystery. I have held onto it for about 3 years, lol!!! I know it part of a handmade paper set. :)

Also, here is a card my 8 year old daughter created using my new image Cordilia Waits. She cut it all out by herself and I think she did an awesome job! She created about 5 more that I will share throughout the week.

Have a Blessed Day!!!
