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."

Good Friday Morning!
I thought this day would never come! What an 'off' week we have had here at my house.
It just felt backwards or something. sigh.

I have heard people comment about how they are ready for Christmas, and others get all Grinch like and puff up all mad :) hehehe. We crafters know that we are running out of time to get our Christmas cards made.. so we just look at those Grinchy people and smile. We know that soon enough their hearts will be warmed by the joy of Christmas .. it's just a matter of time.

I am here today with a few fun Christmas / wintery cards to share with you.

The first up is one I created using the FBD Digital Stamp: Grace and Daniel Stringing Popcorn
It is a pretty simple card. I used traditional green and red colors. My kids seem to think of those colors first when they think of Christmas time so I made this one for them.
I really had fun putting this card together. It made me smile and think of times when I was a child, stringing popcorn and decorating (fighting) with my brother and sister. *sigh*

Materials: Scrap paper from HUGE BOX o SCRAPS, twinery twine in khaki, prismacolor markers and bic markers. GO HERE TO SEE HOW TO MAKE THE POPCORN

Next up is a card I created using the FBD Digital Stamp: A Snowman Christmas

I, again, went with the traditional Christmas colors. And again, I used all scraps to create this card. The icicles were created using a MFT fresh cut grass diecut :))  The embellies and the pillow box were diecuts from a kit called Colorbok Gift Box Project Pack: Jingle Bells. I have had this stack for about 4 years now and really haven't broken into it. I was a little intimidated by the 3d boxes and things in there. I am glad I found it, I will be able to create some fun little packages with the pillow boxes... and decorate them much more elaborately :))

Well, that is it for me. I am off to wake my children and get our last day of school started for the week.
I hope you all have a wonderful and a blessed weekend.
