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."

Just Because

Good Morning!
I am rushing around this morning getting ready to get everyone up and take a two 
and a half hour drive to visit my husbands dad in the hospital. He had surgery and is in recovery.
 He had a cyst removed but it was in a bad area and they had to cut him instead of do it laparoscopically so 
they are predicting that he is going to be there for 3-5 days. 
My little miss had her first music recital last night. MAN was she beautiful and MAN was I proud and MAN was  I a little freaked out at how old she looked and how well she danced. She is only 10 but time has gone by so quickly... sigh. I can picture turning around and tomorrow she will be headed off to college or something. sigh again. We got home close to 11 PM and removed all the make up, washed hair, ate and all of that. Needless to say she was a moody little thing before she got to bed ;) 
 Here is a pic of my sweet little love... all made up - hair fixed and ready to sing and dance....  
(and I did it so it is my fault) 

 Today I am sharing a card set I created using every bit of paper
 I had from these two 12 x 12 pieces of paper. 
I even used the back of the scraps as the solid band of color.

For these next cards I used the NEWEST Fresh Brewed Designs Rubber Stamp

These next cards are ones I created using Papertrey Inc die cuts in which I purchased using a gift card a friend sent me. It was SO hard to choose, but I have always wanted a fence and the clouds are more poofy than the ones I have... so this was my pick. I sortof rushed these, so I can't wait to play with these dies more

I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed Sunday. 
Big Hugs and Lots of Smiles,
(I am rushing, as I said earlier, so this EXACT post can be reread at the 
Freshly Brewed Challenges blog HERE  :))

Eat Sleep Stamp Sketch , Paper Lovin Gals photo insp , Stampin Sisters in Christ: planted or green, Fashionably Stamping: Embossing, Simon Says Stamp: AG, Fussy and Fancy: Punches and Dies, Colour Me Creative Copic's Challenge: Celebration,


  1. Hi Heather *Ü* Your card sets are really pretty, that image is so neat and versatile. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenges today!!

    Your daughter is so beautiful!! Yes they grow up in the wink of an eye. My daughters used to be in ballet and I remember their gorgeous outfits and I would be teary-eyed watching them dance. They're now 11 and 13, my 11 yr. old is in hip hop now and their outfit for recital next month is sweat pants and baggy flannel shirts, lol. Not quite my gorgeous baby dancers but will be entertaining I'm sure. Have a wonderful week.
