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."

Well Owl Be!!!

We are having a NEW DIGI RELEASE at Fresh Brewed Designs AND a new month long prize challenge has been posted to Freshly Brewed Challenges. Stop by the blog to see what we have all been up to :)

For our new summertime theme challenge I created a few cards for you using 4 of the new digis

I had so much fun with this card! I kept the owls white to change things up a bit. My go to is normally brown for some reason. I think they are totally adorable in white. The little mommy (or daddy) owl is taking the kids to the pool for some summer floating fun! They are all fussy cut and colored with prismacolor markers.
This card is one of those clean and simple and over-thought cards. I over-think easy cards :)
I used some OLD handmade paper, kraft cardstock, deep brown cardstock, twine from Fresh Brewed Designs( Mocha Latte Brown and Petal Pink and White) and twine from the Twinery in flax
 this card was fun to make. I used all scrap papers
The flower was quilled (I have not quilled in YEARS so be kind!) I added stickles to it to make it sparkle.
I wanted it to sortof look like a pinwheel  or firework so I hope it came across that way. 
The background is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder but I hoped it would sortof look like fireworks too :))
