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."

what will INSPIRE you?

This week at Freshly Brewed challenges we have a photo for you to use as your inspiration. I really liked the clean white look to this picture. The pops of navy just screamed classy summer. HOWEVER my cards did not turn out the way I had originally planned. I planned to use a lot of white space and probably will try to do that this week.... but ... for now.....

This is what you get :D

I still used the navy and light blue with a pop of orange. I created this cardw with bazzil cardstock, making memories Just Chillin paper, Beach Bums FBD rubber stamp, doodle pen white and black, kraft paper, chipboard stickers and Prismacolor markers. I cut the lemonade (or drink of choice) from her hand so it appears she is holding on to the surfboard. She really does look like she is ready to catch some waves, doesn't she?!?

My sweet DT member Jeanette is taking a little break from posting, so I made an extra card for this challenge. I did not go with the 'beach theme' this go round. I actually saw that he challenge at Altered Alice was to go MAD, so I did! :D I used the same papers as mentioned above with the addition of the teapot. I used MME paper for it. His scarf is covered in orange fun flock and the flamingo is painted with tickled pink inspirations paints (which is on sale at the shop for a very limited time! in fact EVERYTHING in the shop is on sale from 15-20% off. Come check it out HERE) I cut the alpha letters with my cricut using the plantin schoolbook cartridge. I added some bling and doodle lines and voila! there you have it! A card fit for a HATTER... and a mAd one at that!

I hope you will get to stop by Freshly Brewed challenges this week and play along! We also are sponsoring a few wonderful challenge blogs this week, so you will have EXTRA CHANCES to win FBD goodies!!!
