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."

House Mouse Fun!

I played along at the House Mouse and friends birthday bash blog hop party and won some ADORABLE house mouse stamps. I have to admit, the house mouse challenge blog was my FIRST ever challenge I was addicted to and always loved playing along. I met some of my very dearest friends there and also my bestest friend that God had been saving for me to meet until the perfect time.. and he did. :) So the house mouse group will forever have a very special meaning to me. 

As I was saying, I won candy!!! and this stamp was one of the ones I received. I was a little scared at first. That is a lot of coloring and I was not sure I could pull it off. I still need more practice :D but I do love how it turned out. I colored this with my prismacolor markers. The floor and bricks were created using SU chalks and eyeshadow applicators. 

I can't believe that Halloween is just around the corner!!! My kids are wanting to go trick or treating this year. I have put it off in years before because they have such bad food allergies. They are older now and know that they cant eat EVERYTHING they get and my little girl is getting too big and I know will not be wanting to do this very much longer. SOOO against all that is in me, we are going. My little girl picked out an outfit that was sortof girly and frilly so she can wear it to costume day at her dance and for trick or treating.  (pink and black)  little did I know it was a witch. IT has a tiny little witch hat inside. She is SO excited about that. I am not so much, lol!!! and my little boy wanted to be a skeleton. In looking for that, he found a Dracula outfit that he HAD TO HAVE and would not stop begging... so I have a witch and a vampire in my house :/.(( My mom laughed at me. Yea, she thinks it is funny because I did the "I will not let them dress up as anything scary or as a witch or evil... blah blah blah....)) Oh goodness. In line at the store my son told the people behind us "My mom does not celebrate Halloween, but I am going to be a vampire." Yea, I imagine They were only a little confused :D hahaha! My son also ran around wearing the cape singing "I am Tommy the Toothless Vampire!" hahah! HE is missing his two front and bottom teeth (he has a big hole when he smiles :) HAHAHA! I have to admit, he makes the perfect toothless vampire ;)

OK, enough of my rambling. My little girl was playing with her daddy, brother, and a little girl in the neighborhood yesterday. She ended up jamming her pinky finger and is just miserable today ;) poor thing! So I am off to spend some time with her sitting on the couch, watching tv, maybe doing a little crafting. not sure yet. 

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. This is so gorgeous Heather! I love the coloring! House Mouse have some of my most favorite stamps, but I don't own any yet. I used to love Halloween and we became Christian about 10 years ago and stopped celebrating. It was hard for the kids and I think even harder for me. The last couple of years, we have let the kids go Trick or Treating in their grandparents' neighborhood with me with them - they are teens now and should be stopping, but they still like to dress up. Thanks for sharing this adorable card!

  7. Heather,
