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."

Make Me Something Pretty ... Embarassing!!! ;D


OK ... SOOooOOooooo
I am back today with a tutorial
on how to make the flower you saw on
<<<< this card HERE

As you can see above, I stayed with the whole Paris / Eiffel Tower theme with this card. I had the card and image ready and thought the flower would be pretty with her too :D I almost took some watered down food coloring and made it pink... but ran out of time.. so here ya go! Coffee Stained and shabby chic.

I created this card using the Eat Sleep Stamp Sketch >> HERE << where my card was featured last week. Tracy suggested I make a tutorial and I did not want to let her down, so you get a video tutorial (THAT IS TERRIBLE! just sayin' HA!) and a picture tutorial because the vid is terrible (just sayin') :D

The image is one of the FBD New released digis called Gianna Dreams of  Paris (yes, in the vid I forgot the name of the image ... der! and I made terrible faces ... lol) ANYWAY - I had a lot of fun making this card and hope that you will try to make one of these flowers as well. If you do, please come back and share it with me! I would love to see it!!! (PROOF MY TUT WORKED YOU SEE ;)! HA!)

THANK YOU for the sweet comments and inspiration Tracy! 
you are da bomb ;)
OK, I will be hiding in my craft room with the lights off while you watch the video :D hehehe!!!
