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."

Coffee ... Take Me Away!

She says as she sips her cuppa and is singing in her head
 I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
xcept for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue

Well, I am back today to share a card I created for you using the new Freshly Brewed Challenge: Buttons and Bows. We are wanting to see as big or small, little or lot as you have on your creations. Easy right? Well, not for someone who is not so good at tying ribbon. This ribbon did not want me to play with it just so you know! I soaked it and scrunched it up into a ball and sat it in the window yesterday. Yes, it was warm enough to open a window or two :) but is rainy today :( so we will not get into that. Yesterday it windy in spurts, so at one point the screen blew out of the kitchen window and landed loudly in the sink. I went and fixed it and hours later remembered my ribbon. I looked all over. I checked out on the deck, in the grass (it was starting to rain then btw) but found nothing. I finally went and looked in the sink. It had fallen into a cup of water placed in there after the kids had finished crafting. Whew! but guess what ... it was WET AGAIN!  I had to wait on the silly thing to dry before I got to create my card. 
If you read and understood all of that mess, bless you :D hahaha! on to da card...

Today I created a card using the Fresh Brewed Designs  Coffee Take Me Away rubber stamp. I used papers gifted to me from my DT member Linda, ribbon I have had FOREVER gifted to me from my friend Cheryl G., plastic from the face of a kids toy from Christmas, nestabilities lable 4, cuttlebug embossing folder 5x7 size, clear buttons from stash and prismacolor markers. 

I appreciate your stopping by today. I hope you will come back tomorrow and be a part of our Valentines hop and digi release! 

Hugs and Smiles
