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."

Happy Hellos!

Good Morning!!!
I am so excited to have had the chance to be a part of the D.I.V.A.S. Oldie But Goodie blog hop this month! If you are getting here from Ching Tan's Beauty of a Blog: then you are on the right track!!! If not please go back to the start at the ever so sweet Cindy Hess Grigiski's blog -

Things have been so hectic around here as summer draws near. The shop and kids activities really take up more time than I realize, lol, but it is good time and fun. I have had to step back and realize that the clothes will wait another day. I have two days a week that I REALLY clean and the others I straighten up as I go. I used to really stress about housework. Many friends here it the blog world (and my mom who is also a neat freak) have told me it is not worth it. Yesterday was my cleaning day ~ so today is free to have FUN :) YAY!!! Blog hops, blog posts, new challenges and more! I am off soon to start baking cakes for my sons Tee Ball party. Today is the last game of the season and his last Tee Ball game ever. He moves up next year. Sortof bittersweet for me. I don't want my little man growing up so fast.

I know you are not hear to listen to my chattering, you are here to see some papercrafty goodies! Well, I hope that my projects are just that and you enjoy your visit here with me today. The challenge this week at my challenge blog: Freshly Brewed Challenges, is to create with Red White and Blue. I had fun with this combo, moreso than I thought I would and I really do love how they turned out. My 'old' that I used for these projects would be scrap papers on the Hi card. Those papers are well over a year old. Also, my cricut cartridges were dusted off for these projects. I was able to use the frames from the Paper Pups cart as well as the jar from the Stretch your Imagination Cart. WAHOO!!! :) I forgot how much fun the Cricut actually was!!!


These cards are all simple and were lots of fun to create.
I hope you enjoyed stopping by today. Your next hop stop is the lovely Mary Harmon: Have fun hopping and I hope your day is full of smiles and Happy Hellos! God Bless!!!
