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."

On Cloud 9

I think I am higher than cloud 9 as a matter of fact :D! Speaking of cloud 9, why did we start saying that? a little lesson for us this morning:

According to the "Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins," the phrase is based on U.S. Weather Service terminology. This theory holds that cloud types are numbered, and that "cloud nine" is the designation given to "cumulonimbus" clouds, the highest-flying clouds around, making them an apt metaphor for being "on top of the world."
When "you're on cloud nine" you feel wonderful !
Like nothing else is really very important.
This expression means that you are extremely happy, almost in heaven.
For example: You have been dating for 6 weeks and you are madly in love with him and he proposes to you and you are in static, or ''on cloud nine"
If you have been dating for 6 weeks and you are madly in love with her and propose to her and she accepts without hesitation, you are blisfull and elated or "on Cloud Nine".

OK so I am sharing this because of the last example they have given here... hmm. 6 weeks? How is that even an example. How many people DO that? I know that I did ;) lol... met my husband and was engaged only a month later. Just curious! 

OK, now to the card and reason for my feeling extremely happy. 
My twine came in yesterday!!! WOOT WOOT!!!
I am one of those people who get the old stuff. I get the old paper because it is the ones that are put on sale or  on clearance. I get old ribbon.. all of my stuff is old for that reason. lol! But I also get it because I love it and I wait because I know it will one day go on sale... but to have something NEW as soon as it comes out... that is a first for me! :D I was  able to take advantage of the special they had last week for the $8 spools of twine. I chose the Orchid, Flax and Cantaloupe because the blue was sold out already and my impulse buying button was flashing pretty hard. I am so glad I did though.

I created this card using the Twinery colors Cantaloupe and Orchid. The rubber stamp is Fresh Brewed Designs Cutie Pie in Clouds . She will be part of a SPECIAL ONE DAY DEAL FBD is having on February 6th. She will be on sale for $3.95 .. one day only or until sold out. If she is sold out, I will add a new stamp to replace her for that price until the end of the day!
more materials: The blue dot paper is my My Minds Eye bright dot stack, the pink is making memories small pink dots, the yellow is PTI 2008 bitty dot basics. I colored little cutie pie with prismacolor markers and decorated her with glossy accents and diamond stickles. The epoxy hearts are by little yellow bicycle.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a lovely Thursday!
