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."

In the meadow we can build a snowman

Hi everyone!!
Remember yesterday when I shared that we were having a weekend filled with new image releases at FBD?!?!
Well, I wasn't kidding you, we are! :D hehehe!!!

TODAY we have three MORE digis to release and share with you.
They are all perfect for this super cold day we are having today too!

First up is a card that I was able to use two digis on!
This card is featuring We Can Build a Showman (Hannah Belle and Tommy) and Christmas Topiary
I used my cricut to create the window. I placed double sided tape along the edges and then fit a piece of Papertrey Inc Clear cardstock to the back of the PTI chocolate brown frame. 
I then added glossy accents and glitter to make the snow. 
After I shook off the remainder of the snow,  I created the icicles with more glossy accents.
The images are colored with prismacolor markers. The snowflake stamps are by Martha Stewart. I used designer paper that was raked to me from my friend Rhonda.
I think it makes lovely wallpaper, don't you?!?!

NOW, I do realize that if I had done things differently I could have avoided hiding the snowman so much... but now I know and can adjust it for the next card if I choose to make one :D
BUT if you angle the card just so, you can see him peeking out :D

This card was created using the Sketch at EAT SLEEP STAMP
