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 the June Fresh Brewed Designs Three Day Blog Hop! 

If you are getting here from Catherine's blog then you are right on track.
 If you are just finding your way to our fun filled, extra caffeinated, and mega inspiring blog hop, then please start at the beginning here: Freshly Brewed Challenges.

The Fresh Brewed Designs Team and Guests have put together an exciting blog hop TODAY and ALL THIS WEEKEND featuring handmade cards inspired by our new released Rubber Stamps: Hello Girlfriend and You+Me=BFF.
For my card I chose to create with the NEW stamp Hello Girlfriend! 

 For this card I used Hello Girlfriend, Hello *telephone* rubber stamp 
and the new FBD Hello rubber sentiment.
(i had a string of twine for the phone line, but forgot to add it! DER! lol!)
I heart sketches sketch for June

For this card I used the Hello Girlfriend rubber stamp,  

I know we all have friends. We all have friends we know more like acquaintances, we have our church friends, we have friends at our kids afterschool functions... but then we have those friends we can not live without. Many of my friends are on my DT or have once been. I am so blessed and honored to get to create side by side with some of the most wonderful ladies. We all chat and share outside of FBD too. We are always there for each other and always praying and loving and uplifting one another. What could be better?

I have to give a shout out to my TOC! Thank you for being in our hop today!!!  This lady has been there for me through EVERYTHING. and  I mean EVERYTHING. I can share anything with her and know that she will not judge me but will love me.  I am so thankful that our friend Carolyn (the other TOC) introduced us and that we have continued to keep in touch through the years. She is always such a breath of fresh air. God truly knew what he was doing when he placed her in my life!

Gods plan is always just so amazing. We have no idea what he has for us, then we turn around even way later and see it all painted out for us.  I have never had a 'real friend' in my life and can now say I am blessed to be able to count them on two hands :)) So to all of my amazing friends in this hop with me, know I love and appreciate you and you are the best friends anyone could ever have!!!
