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."

Summer Days .. drifting away

Happy Monday everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by today. 
Can you believe summer is almost over. Some schools have already opened their doors. 
Summer is ending .... and that makes me sad. Where did it go?!?!

I am going to try to keep Summer with us a bit longer by sharing a few fun beachy cards with you. 

The first is featuring Beach Bums  Rubber Stamp 
(only one left in stock!)

 this card was alot of fun to make. I had made these frames to sell at Mayfest 
and still had some left over, and thought they would make a fun embellie frame for a card...
but I never got around to it. I have had her since May, ready to go. 
I just could not let summer pass by without using her!

The frame is cut out with 2 spellbinders nestie dies using clear cardstock
I then embossed it with a larger dot cuttlebug embossing folder. 

challenges for this card include Sweet sketch Wednesday sketch, Loves Rubber Stamps: Bingo, 
The Ribbon Girl: bingo, Moving Along With The Times - Summer, Southern Girls - Water Play, Creative Belli - vacation/travel,

Next up is the sweet little Beach Baby digital stamp

Challenges for this card include the sweetest thing sketch, pile it on bingo,  Moving Along With The Times - Summer, Crafts and Me - use a digi, Fab 'n' Funky -  Pearls/rhinestones, 

Our RUBBER RELEASE HOP final countdown is finally here! woot woot!
We have been playing games and having fun over at our facebook events page.
We have a sketch challenge going on and another new challenge for everyone- going on now! 
It is something SO SIMPLE and can get you 5 free digis if you win!
all you have to do is share a pic of you with your favorite coffee cup / item 
or just the item itself if you are camera shy. 
Here is mine -
This cup was gifted to me by my TOC (which also stands for BFF in our weird language)
Catherine. I have a few special cups sent to me by friends ... but I was on my way to church and this was my cup of choice to take along with me. I LOVE that it is glass and has a lid! AWESOME!!

What are you waiting for! Come play along!!!

  3. Hi Heather, It is so fun to have you stop by and join us. We think of you often too. My grand kids are already back in school. They have been for a couple of weeks. I am always happy for the temperature to cool down a bit at this time of year, but I know what you mean. The thing is, the year is almost over and Christmas is just around the corner. Where did the time go this year? Anyway, both of your cards are adorable. I love those fun frames you have made. such a cute idea. Your images are darling too.
    Thanks for stopping by.
