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."

Je T'aime

Ahh .. Paris. 

*2 in stock*
stop by the shop and get her before she is gone!
for a few months anyway ;)

I have only been out of 'my state' (aside from the bordering states to visit family) a few times in my lifetime. I can probably count them all on both hands, maybe one foot ;) hehehe! So the thought of going to Paris is one that I know would never happen :D but our Latte Loving Lady sure did enjoy her time there. I think she may have been a bit under dressed. Here's hoping that she has a lovely pashmina in her shopping bag.

I created this card to follow our Freshly Brewed color challenge this week. We are encouraging you to use pink, white and kraft on your creations. You can also use something NEW and enter it into both this color challenge AND our month long prize challenge of Use Something New (heheh- i am getting repetitive, yes, I have had my coffee *sluurp*).

I really had a lot of fun making this ruffle and flower. I had *cough my mom had* over Christmas break coffee stained some old white blue jeans for me to make some coffee cozy's for my friends :) I had almost a whole leg left over ;) hahaha! so... in pinning some of my creations to pintrest the other day, I realized that my cardmaking had gotten a little... slack. I wanted to step it up a bit and make something I, myself, would love. and I did. I hand sewed the strip of jeans, stretched it all to pieces trying to manipulate it then *DER* I ironed it flat :D I used 6 non-perfect hand cut circles to create the ruffled flower. I truly had a LOT of fun making this card. AND I wanted to let you know that you can use cheaper markers to create the hilight look to hair. I have only attempted this .. I think this is my second time... I honestly forgot I could do it. I played around with my markers and really like the ones I chose to go together. The think wtih prismacolor is that they do not have as many in the same color family as copics, but I made it work... pretty good I think ;).

Other materials include : Papertrey inc Cardstock, UpCycled Making Memories Note Card, prismacolor markers (for hair: wheat, deco yellow, jasmine and goldenrod) skin (pale peach, brick beige and ballet pink) pants ( mocha light and mocha dark) boots (mocha dark) bag ( cherry and tuscan red) shirt (ballet pink, blush pink, pink)
