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."

Welcome to my entry for the Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop for the Design Divas facebook/blogging group.  If you are just getting to this fun and special hop, then please start at Sue's blog here.

 We host a hop for our members the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  The theme is oldies but goodies and we to make a paper crafting project utilizing at least one item that we have not used in 6 months or more.  

I wanted to start this post off by saying HAPPY SUMMER!
Summer??? you say. It just turned spring! Well, the weather is NOT spring like. We had spring weather over the winter. I just had to break out the summer fun to celebrate this super warm weather we have been having. Still not sure this is a GOOD thing. I worry about  our gardens, the hurricanes, how HOT our actual summer will be... 
or will our summers be cold and fall come early ;) hahah!!! 

 My oldie but goodies on my card are... well... almost everything. I used my Cricut and the first ever cricut cart to create the frame and the sunshine. The waves are cut with a MFT die I purchased early last summer. The stamp is one of my own designs. It is a Fresh Brewed Designs summer 2011 release called Luau Party. She was colored up with my prismacolor markers in which many are well over a year or almost two old. Those markers have lasted me FOREVER!!! I know I have heard so many good things about Copics, but so far my prismas have been very good to me :D.

Your next hop stop for our DIVAS hop is the sweet Mary: Go HERE to see what she has created for you.

This card was also created for the NEWEST Freshly Brewed Challenge. 
We are challenging you to use LOTS of DOTS!
Hope to see you there!
And remember, Kenzie is giving away a set of ProMarkers to one lucky winner!!!
