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."

Private Island Getaway

For the NEW digi post featuring Gardening Granny go HERE

Sending a happy Hi to everyone visiting today!
I am soooooooooo bored! It is too hot to do anything. I have curtains pulled to block out the heat. My daughter and I have been playing with polly pockets (and drinking coffee and eating cookies :D) while Daddy and little man have been playing video games. While all that is good... I feel like the day has been wasted. 
we are off to see another free christian concert at the boardwalk tonight. Sidewalk Profits will be there tonight :). We really love their songs.

Now that I had bored you to death, lol!!! ;)
I will share my card with you. 


This one was SO much fun to make. I used my favorite diecuts again :D
The MFT die-namics cloud  and the waves. I actually used the waves as a stencil this go round, so it was different :D that is good right? I stamped my Sunbathing Beach Babe Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamp down first, then I stamped her another time, cut her and masked her off so I could stamp the palm tree 'behind' her. I drew in the sand and, voila, a private little island getaway :D

This image was so large, I did not use any detailed patterned paper because it would have been covered up anyway. I did use some leftover Martha Stewart dot paper to create the little tabs at the top and bottom of the framed image and some pink dot paper from k*i memories Juicy Summer. The sentiment comes from a clear stamp set by Dear Lizzy - American Craft. I stamped my FBD stamps with momento ink, colored them with Prismacolor markers and made them shimmer with Fairy Dust inspirations paint. There is even shimmer in the palm tree :)

(PS, they are having a Design team call right now! I LOVE PCS and know that you all do too, so why not try out for their team. If I had time, I know I would!! :)
They are so talented there... I know wouldn't make it ;) lol!!! Way out of my league IMHO!!! 

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and that this card makes you imagine you are on your own private beach somewhere :D

HUGS and SMILES and Happy Summer Days!
