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."

Hot Stuff

We are slap dab in the middle of summer. Are you loving it? I have yet to get to enjoy much of mine yet, but I will,  by George,  before August hits spend a few days on and enjoy the beauty of the beach. I will I tell ya! :)) I can not believe it is almost July! School will be starting soon and we will be busy running to dance and doing homework and stressing out about everything again :/ sigh. I really could use an extended summer. How about we go an extra month? Sounds good to me!!! .

This is a card I created using the FBD rubber stamp Beach Bums
Isn't she just so sassy and fun!?! 

I used the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 161 for this card.
I really wanted to keep it fun and summery. I can't think of anything that says summer more than 
a patriotic red white and blue card (with a chick in a bikini of course - LOL!) 

We have a lot of fun things planned in July at Fresh Brewed Designs. 
Check out this post to find out some of the fun things you will NOT want to miss.
