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."

Happy Birthday Baby!

Today is my sweet little girls birthday. 
She has hit the double digits.... and I am wondering how it got here so fast. 
I am actually writing this post late this night and having it ready for tomorrows posting...
and as I sit here I think of my sweet baby girl. The one I prayed so long for. The one I would cherish every moment I felt her kick, her painful but wonderful stretch inside me, how terrified but excited I was to get to go to the hospital to welcome her to the world. The moment I found out I had to have a C-section (UGH!) and the first time I heard her sweet cry. The first time I got to look into her precious little eyes... yes, you know it, I am bawling now. She is halfway to adult hood. She is half the age I was when I got married. Sigh. BUT this is not a sad time, this is a super happy time. It is her 10th birthday and while I will reminisce, I will also celebrate what a wonderful, beautiful, silly, happy, talented little lady she is.

I created this image for my princess. This is simply called Birthday Girl. I kept hte colors fun and funky because she is 10 after all and 10 year olds are not really about the sweet pastels and soft colors ... lol.  I am liking these colors better together than when I was making it. I Was thinking... this is going to be one bright and gaudy card!!! hehehehe!! but I do love it all together. They are just happy and bright and do not clash as much as I thought they would. I went all out with tons of pop dots, big bold trim and fun epoxy stickers I have been saving for a few years. She got it all!!!

 This digi is NOT available in the shop today. 
She is FREE with any purchase until March 31.
