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."

**this is my second post for the day. Scroll down or GO HERE to see my FBD (chocolate)  post**

Good Morning!!! I am so pleased to have had the chance to participate this month in the DIVAS blog hop! If you are just getting here... then good! :D Because  I am the first hop stop!! WOOHOOO!!!!

Us DIVAS try to get together once a month and host a fun hop sharing things we have in our stash that are at least 6 months old.... 

This month I decided to use a REALLY REALLY old stamp. This rose stamp is at least 4 years old. I do not even remember purchasing it :DI themed this card after the current challenge at The Altered Alice: Painting the roses red. I did literally just that. I had so much fun making this card! I first painted the tops of the roses with red acrylic paint, then I just flung / flicked more on there. I sprinkled some extra fine Martha Stewart glitter on it and let it dry. The ribbons are all scrap and the designer papers are from the Crate Paper Restoration Collection.

Thank  you for sharing part of your day with me today!
This hop is filled with amazing talent and inspiration.

Your next hop stop is the beautiful and creative Cindy  at Stamp with Me Cindy G.

Wishing you all a wonderfully blessed and super lovely day!
