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."

School Days

We {{barely}} survived our first day of school.
Anyone else out there heard of or use Connections Academy?
We tried it this year, but I am still not sure it was the best decision.
It is in fact driving me insane!!! I just knew I could not afford the $500 - 600 it cost in books again this year. 

ANYWAY - We will keep trucking on and see how it goes.
No major decisions yet; just still getting a feel for it. We spent close to 7 hours having school today.
Mostly going back and forth from work books to computers to little tutorial videos to workbooks and so on. I will be working all day tomorrow planning our books and lessons for next week. Maybe if I get everything printed out and ready, we will not be doing so much hopping.

Enough of my rambling. I do have something cute to share with you today. 
This card set was created using the digi Big Apple Book Worm. 
This was another digi drawn by request, but for someone I know in 'real life' lol. 
This digi was for a lady at my daughters dance school. She requested it for a summer reading program or something like that before the summer started. 

This is a card set I created for my sister to give out. I kept them really plain and simple. I used an older paper stack - MME Asparagus Stack for these cards. I printed the digi, colored them with sharpie and prismacolor markers,  cut them with the next to largest size lacy scalloped spellbinders die and voila! there you have it, a little gift for someone special. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Thank you for stopping by! 
Big smiles, 
this card set is for the following challenges
