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."

Sweet Heart

Good Morning my beautiful friends.
I have my coffee brewing and my fingers crossed that our day of school goes as smoothly as yesterdays :)
We were able to find a flag football team for my son to play on that seems to be a good one. It will be a bit of a drive, but is with a church and there seems to be no bullying allowed. I hope he enjoys it.

Today I have a few things to share with you. I am not sure about you all, but when I type too much all at once, my ring and index finger on my right hand starts to ache and actually twitch. I can't hardly stand it!!! it has been like that for a few days now. I feel it a little now, but not so much. I will try to be brief... but that is my problem I guess. I like to talk :D

First off, I want to share with you that Fresh Brewed Designs is sponsoring The City Crafter Challenge this week. The ladies there are so beautiful and so talented. Their challenge is a fun one!!! {{I heart you}}. To use hearts on your card. I actually had some Valentine themed epoxy hearts that went perfect with the papers I picked out. I  {{LOVE}} this paper!!! I got it from my sweet friend Carolyn for my birthday and will not {{LOVE}} it when I run out. She and I had just been talking about our paper stash and how we  vow to use and not hoard as much. I wanted to use this paper in a way you could SEE it and not hide it, and I think I did that. :)

I created this card with a NEWLY RELEASED RUBBER STAMP called Sweet As Pie. I love to paper piece her outfit and also love that she is very versatile. I tried to make the stamps where they were this time. Not too  many coffee themed ones :) but by golly they can be coffee themed if you want them to be :D hehehe!!! You KNOW I have to have coffee with my pie!!! ;)

Another thing I want to share with you is this amazing package(s) of goodies I got this past week from my DT and friends. I was literally so overwhelmed. I was NOT expecting this AT ALL and still don't know exactly what to say to express my thanks. The cards, goodies.. all of it was just wonderful and made me smile. What was the best feeling of all though was opening these boxes and literally feeling hugged. I have the best friends in the world and am just so completely blessed. I thank God for each of you every day!
and here is a pic of me from a few days ago, enjoying coffee and planning out a card using my new goodies. (I am still pretty sick here, but was able to taste again! wooo!!)
