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."

I'll Have a Purple Christmas?

OK, so many of you know that I LOVE the color purple. 
It has been my favorite color for... well... forever. 
I love it in every shade. I love ALL colors, but something about purple stands out to me. 
At the same time, I do not create with it often or have many purple items. I just like to look at it :D
Weird? I don't know. I guess I might be somewhat intimidated to create with it, but I got over it and decided to up my game a little and create a Christmas card for me :D

My Christmas Tree digital stamp
Caution:Contents are Hot rubber stamp (girl)
sentiment (will be a freebie soon :D keep checking in... starting Monday...)

 I had so much fun making this card. I love the glittery purple dress and the beautiful papers that were all RAKed to me years ago. I used the sketch at I {heart} Sketches for this card.

I made a few cards this month using this sketch, but wanted to make one I really liked to enter her challenge with. I can say that I am happy with this one... and just in time too!!!

I even drew this Christmas tree digi just for this card :D 
It will be in the shop tomorrow morning; tomorrow also starts our new Freshly Brewed Challenge! woohoo!
I have a little bit of fun news to share with you tomorrow... so stop back in and see what it is :D 
I am a little excited.. it is not a BIG deal, but is fun just the same :D

materials used to create this card: 
RAKed paper, scrap paper,
Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamp: Caution Contents are Hot, 
My Christmas Tree digital stamp, and sentiment digital stamp, 
the twinery purple twine, and different colors of stickles glitter paint.
