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."

Cute and Sweet!

Good Morning!!! So happy to have you stopping by to share part of your day with me :) IT is Wednesday, and you know what that means? YUP! It is time for a new FRESHLY BREWED CHALLENGE! This week we are challenging you to create something cute AND sweet. What could be sweeter than chocolate and coffee and soft pastel colors?The 3D challenge at Papercraft Planet is being hosted by my sweet friend Adela and is lovingly called a Peek-a-Boo Challenge. She is challenging us to create a box with a hole in it to peek in to. She has also provided a template for you to use if you need it. I will have to go back and create another with that because it is just tooo cute!!! I found this box in the resources section of SCS. It is called a 2-5-7-10 Box.
I layered the patterned paper over the box, glued it down ;), and cut the hole out of the center with my scalloped oval nesties. I accidentally scored the box wrong (oops) but I just added more score lines to the back and flap to make it just cute! No more oops!!! :) hahaha! I then added a paper pieced coffee girl (La Dolce Vita to be exact) Then I added a huge hand full of Dove Dark chocolate to a clear cellophane bag to make it extra sweet. Now all this gift needs is a piping hot cup of coffee!!! :)
The main sketch I used to create this card can be found at the month long challenge at i heart 2 stamp.
