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."

Have a {Super Soft and Sweet} Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
Thanks for stopping by today!
We are having a fun challenge this week at Freshly Brewed Challenges and hope that you will be able to play along. Our challenge this week is Fancy Folds. 

Here is the card I came up with using the Fresh Brewed Designs Rubber Stamp
Cutie Pie Ice Skating *which is currently on sale!*

(caution: there are several pictures ahead :D)

First of all, I decided to make a felt pocket that could hold a tag or gift card for the recipient.
But also, at the same time, the little felt pocket can be removed and used for the very same thing. A gift tag / gift card holder, or little treat holding ornament. 
The little flower wreath decorated with beautiful pearls is hiding underneath the fun pocket.
The top of the wreath has a very secured button so that the felt pocket is easy to add and remove. 

but that does not equal a fancy fold right?
So here is the inside:
and the next panel

Cute right?
I had so much fun making this card. 
Here it is from a side view:

See, I told you there were lots of pictures!!! hehehe

  1. ohmygoodness heather! this is so absolutely beautiful and creative! All the felt and the DP you chose feels so warm and cozy! The cool tag holder that goes with the card... the flower soft accents on the little ice-skater, and the saying with felt heart inside... sigh.... I think this goes on my list of favorites! :)
