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."

One Hot Cuppa Joe

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is having a super wonderful lovely weekend so far. (I know it just started, but I hope yours started off  right :)!) I know at Fresh Brewed Designs, we are!! I have had my morning java and am ready to take on  the day! My husband is off work and we are going to spend time together and with the kids.
On the other hand, Our lovely latte lady rubber stamp has been so very lonely. She keeps telling me she loves all the places she has been and has loved visiting all of the coffee shops, but it gets tiring  going by herself all the time. I introduced her to who we lovingly call Hot Cuppa Joe and she couldn't be happier! :D hehehe

Well, maybe I have had TOO much coffee today .... but I hope you are smiling and putting up with me and my craziness. All of this leads up to a NEW DIGITAL STAMP RELEASE!!! I had some free time on my  hands this week sitting with a not so well little man, so I took advantage of my being lazy and created this to share with all of you Fresh Brewed Designs fans :)

Here he is.....
drumroll please.....
Welcome to the family:

 He is standing with our lovely latte lady, I'll Take Mine to Go rubber stamp.
All of the papers are from my scrap pile (GO ME!!!) I used my cricut Accent Essentials cartridge to cut out the shapes behind them. I used the fantastic sketch at Papertake Weekly for this card. I also did something I did not want to do but am glad I did :D Have you ever done something JUST for a challenge? Stamp Man is asking for stitching. I poked all the holes and hand stitched up the sides. Normally it would be calming and a stress relief for me, but I was so busy ...  thank you Stamp Man for getting me to sit down and take a break :D. The colors I chose for this card were inspired by the challenge at Just Add Ink and the bling comes from the Totally Papercrafts challenge.

 Look at all of those yummy layers and the shimmer :) Yes I had too much fun making this card :D I think this may be the thickest card I have made.
At least in the top 5~ :)
