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."

Quilled Flower

I have been wanting to get back into quilling and making a 'different' style card for a while now, I just have not had time or the mojo juice to do so. I got an email from Tip Nut that had a list of handmade paper flowers, and I saw this on on a quilling website / blog. I have since made a few of these flowers and here is a card I made with one. A friend was in need of a wedding card for a friend who is getting married. Her colors are red, black and white. I had ribbon and lace out, but chose to add traditional quilling in the shape of flourishes coming from the base of the flower. I added stickles to the edges of the flourishes and flower petal tips. I even added a little quilled heart to the middle of one flourish to add an extra touch of 'love and romance' to it.

Hope you like the card. Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! YAY!!! :)
