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."

Mocha Manic Monday and more FUN stuff!!!

Do you know what today is? That's right!!!
Every first Monday of the month you will find a freebie at the Fresh Brewed Designs shop just waiting for you to snag and create with.
Eat Sleep Stamp
sketch, Creative Inspirations - 2W - use a Digi, Crafty Emma inspiration photo, Fashionista Friday - #77: Things with wings,

This month I created a fresh and new Angel Cake for you. She is near and dear to my heart. Angel Cakes were one of the first designs / series of images created at Fresh Brewed Designs, inspired by a crafty project my mom used to create when I was a teenager.

I hope you will hop on over to the shop, take little Angel Cake home with you, and bring her back to visit in some challenges from time to time ;) While you are there, check out the NEW!! Hot out of the Press! (a bodum coffee press that is ;)! We have a few new summery digis that are sure to make you SMILE!!! We are also offering a fun product called Creative Inspirations Paints! These paints are AWESOME!!! and on almost every project I have made lately, with more to come :).

OK, OK, you don't have to pull my leg!!! I will share another card with you :D hehehehe!

this one is a newly released rubber stamp you will see again if you stop back for the hop Wednesday. The name of this stamp is Beach Bums :). Fresh Brewed Designs is sponsoring ICS this week and she was just dying to dazzle this card and bring it with the ICS Sketch. I always like to mix, flip and play with my sketches, but I kept this one pretty exact. I love Dawns sketches (and Dawn for that matter :D)
I colored her with prismacolor markers. I gave her a nice tan, a bright blue bikini and some pretty shimmery highlights. The Vacation sentiment is by Clearly Wordsworth, patterned paper is a mystery to me, cardstock by Papertrey Inc and to make her all shimmery and beautiful, I used Creative Inspirations Paints in Aquamarine (now for sale at Fresh Brewed Designs) and chocolate brown. I even painted up the flower!!! Challenges: Southern Girls Green & blue, Paper Crafting Journey : Bling, Totally Papercrafts: Glitter, Raise The Bar : Beach/seashells, Just Add Ink: Just add a flower, Stamping Vacation : popdot, square, floral paper; Sentimental Sundays - must include a Sentiment - For those Special Women in your life, Pile It On - Time to Travel, Crafty Hos' - Celebrate Strong, Influential Women,

Don't forget!!!
