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."

A Cloudy Day

Good morning!
I am back today with a NEW card using one of the
YUP, it is time for a new challenge at Freshly Brewed Challenges. 
Can you guess what it is by looking at this card???
Give up?!?! 
We are challenging you to use 3 of something. ANYTHING!
I chose to use three clouds for this card. 
two clouds are cut out windows, the other is pieced between the other two
It really looks very pretty IRL. 
The Cosmo Cricut De Lovely patterned paper, the bazzil green cardstock with the swirly windy cb embossing folder, the MFT Die-Namics die cut from Simon Says Stamp and this little Angel Cake with Kite digi make the HOT HOT HOT Day we are having feel just a little less hot. I am really ready for some calm cooler days where we can run through a field of flowers and have fun :D Just like little Angel Cake.
 Challenges for this card include:
City Crafter Challenge -Let The Sunshine In 
Tuesday Throwdown -  Fun in the Sun

Next up is another lovely cloud filled card. 
This card is featuring the FBD rubber stamp: Cutie Pie Swinging
(these stamps are very low in quantity. We will stop selling unmounted stamps and  once they are sold, they will be no longer available!!!)

I used American craft paper, bazzil cardstock, MME dot paper, MFT Die-Namics die cut clouds, prismacolor markers, Making Memories flower paper for her dress, bazzil cardstock, PTI cardstock, clear dew drops, Copic Spica in red and gold, purple gel pen, and prismacolor markers.
