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."

Wet and Wild

No we are not talking about the water park or the nail polish (the cheap $.99 kind we used as kids) anyway ~ We are celebrating the 'wild side' at Freshly Brewed Challenges. We are challenging you to create something using anything WILD! Animals, animal print, bg paper, you name it! We want to see it. A little or a lot, just show us your wild side (OH GOODNESS!!! It just hit me some of the WILD cards we will be seeing with some of those scandalous images out there lol. Guess I need to practice peeking through my fingers :D)

Digital Image: Baby Ellie
The card I have to share with you today is featuring the sweet little Baby Ellie. I think she is pretty wild enough for me today! :D She is enjoying her ice cream watching the beautiful pink clouds pass by over the choppy waves. I have overused these diecuts lately, no doubt! But I LOVE them :) and Summer is almost over so I have months to wait to use the waves again, unless I find something really cool to do with them :).
Beautiful shimmer created by:
(available at the Fresh Brewed Shop)
(LOVE the fairy dust! It paints over any color and remains clear
it just adds a beautiful shimmer... and it dries in a flash!!!)
Let me share a little story with you :)
I will keep it short, I know I heard a few groans :D 
When I was around 11 years old (yes, I am probably a little off) my parents moved us to 'the beach' from 'the mountains'. They were unsure if this was the right thing to do and had been praying about it. My mom thought of the most uncommon thing to see at that time and said "OK, if we see a pink elephant on the way, I will take that as a sign" (or something like that). Well, would you guess that we saw several pink elephants on the way.... how funny is that! I remember my sister and brother and I seeing them and laughing and pointing them out. 

I do hope you are having a lovely week and that you will get to play along with us this week at Freshly Brewed Challenges
