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."

Have a Fintastically Magical Day!

Good Morning! I am sitting here sipping my coffee looking out the window hoping for a not too hot but dry and nice day. Is that asking too much ;)?? My son has a make up tee ball game this morning so we will be moving and grooving early this Saturday.

Blogger was acting wonky yesterday, so I did not get to post my card :( SO today you get two :D!!! This first card was created using the FBD rubber stamp: Cutie Pie Mermaid. I pulled out my cricut and was amazed that it cut out these little embellies with no oopsies. We usually have oopsies! I guess the thicker cardstock works better for smaller items. They turned out so cute with her!!! I traced the detail cuts with a marker and then painted over the little darlings with Inspirations Paints: Light Purple. My favorite color is purple but I am always challenged when I try to use it on a card. Not sure why. That is another reason I chose the purple and green inspiration photo for Freshly Brewed Challenges this week. Both of these cards go for the challenge ~ but the cutie pie also works for the MONTH LONG PRIZE CHALLENGE: Beach / Summer theme! You CAN combine other FBD challenges with the prize challenge, so what are you waiting for??? Challenges for this card:
Eat Sleep Stamp Sketch
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - dots
Crafty Pad - Spots and Dots
Let's Ink It Up - Embellish it

Whisper: The Fairy

I have a confession. I do not think I have used Whisper as long as she has been in my shop. I am now wondering how many others I have yet to create with!!! Her name was easy to choose. The others I had to think and look up names and meanings. She just WAS Whisper. She reminded me of the times when God sends a little calming breeze, a whisper, to remind us he is there and he loves us.

I used the creative inspirations paints to paint these flowers. I think it turned out SO pretty. I had the offwhite prima flowers and this painted over then just so amazingly perfect!!! I also painted strips of glittery goodness in her hair. Challenges for this card include:
Fabulous Friday - Use ribbon or twine

Challenges for both cards include:
Creative Belli -Anything starting with S ~ Shimmer-seashell

  1. Awesome ... both creations are fabulous but I really like what you've done with Whisper the Fairy! Your choice of dp & color perfectly showcase her beauty! And what a fabulous job on that flower ... so soft & pretty! Great job!
    Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us over at The Sisterhood. We hope you'll join us again next challenge!

  2. Heather I love your art! First I read (or re-read) the scripture in your header and was reminded of that stormy night eons ago at a Sandy Patti concert when just as she hit one of her incredibly inspiring high notes the lightening struck and the lights went out temporarily. Talk about being touched!!! Wow!

    Your love for purple would fit right in around here, at least with the K-State fans! DH and I are both grads of Wichita State University and are like fish out of water up here in the K-State vs. KU (University of Kansas) part of the country. WSU's colors are black and gold (more of a mustard yellow than true gold) and the mascot is a big shock of wheat (thus he's called Shocker!)

    Ok I don't have any idea where I was headed with that... must have more coffee before heading out with DD for some garage sales and walk around part of the lake.

    Blessings and hugs...

  3. Wow, both of your cards are fabulous. I just love the coloring. Have fun at tee-ball.

  4. Your cutie pie, is just that...a
    KAAA-U-TIE!!! Those embellies are perfect! And the purple is just lovey, so soft and sweet with all the shimmer! I have to try the inspirations paint on some flowers, wowza, that is gorgeous! And girl, your Whisper card is stunning... and inspirational! I am stuck by the times when I feel a warm embrace in the middle of a crises and I know it is God wrapping his arms around me and whispering in my ear that he will NEVER leave me or Forsake me! Praises! Our God is good!
    Hugs and Smiles!
