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."

It is just around the corner!
Sand, sun, waves crashing on the shore, the smell of sunscreen in the air... 
Who doesn't love summer!?!
Our Beach Bums rubber stamp is so sassy and fun. 
I wish I were able to wear a itty bitty bikini again... but I can't so I will live vicariously though this stamped image and be happy :D. I found this PERFECT paper at an online shop that was closing down and was so excited to get to use it. It is gorgeous IRL. Some of the words are coated in clear glitter sparkles. Another score was the fun yellow trim. I found a large spool of that at my local Tuesday Morning. 20 yards for $8.. yea baby! I also scored some FUN teal too! The diecut piece is actually a paper coaster that I purchased from Papertrey Inc.  I embossed it with a 5x7 cuttlebug embossing folder. I love my dot embossing folders!!!   and voila, a fun summer card.

Anyway - I thought that you could use a little escape today and dream of lazy beach days. 

Don't forget our rubber release hop for May starts TOMORROW! 
we will be hopping all weekend - so you have plenty of time to party with us!!!
