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."

Wreaths are Cool!!!

Well ....  today they are! :))
I love looking at the pretty decorated houses as we drive to church on Sunday mornings. 
I am usually on the bypass and highways going to dance, 
so I don't get to enjoy the scenery unless it is speeding cars or roadkill :(( 
I  just wish I had the decorating skills others have. I love the beautiful fall colored wreaths. If I slapped one
on my little ol house it would just look worse than it did before! HAHAHAHA!!! Don't get me wrong, I am totally blessed to have what I have, I just don't do much outside work. I clean and do everything inside, and my hubby works all the time, so he doesn't do it either unless it is mowing and that sort of thing. My outside house is just not worthy of being decorated. Maybe one day!

Anyway - our challenge this week at Freshly Brewed Challenges is to use this photo inspiration pic:

And here are the cards I created for the challenge:

  Come and Knock on my Door rubber stamp
the spiderwebs and spiders were all doodled on this card. Everything else is supposed to be there :))
The sentiment stamp is from a Martha Stewart set I purchased about 7 years ago?
The little brads are by Jazzy Brads. 
TIP I scored the bg paper every half inch and then ink distressed it all to give it the look of siding.

Wreath Girl Rubber Stamp
  This card was a quick and simple card I created using Papertrey Inc cardstock
(teal and brown) and paper from my scrap pile. I love the paper I pieced her dress with. 
It was a RAK and I have NO idea what it is! I have saved bits and pieces of it to paper piece with. 
The sentiments are computer generated.

This card was created using the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a lovely and blessed day!

  13. Great cards!!!! Love the google eyes on the topiaries!!!
    Thanks for joining CTO this week!!

  14. OK, first of all I have to say - I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN! I do all the inside work, and hubby is at work practically 24/7. At this point, he's not even keeping up with the mowing, let alone stuff like washing the siding. I'm pretty sure our house looks worse than the empty one down the street ;) lol!
    The Halloween card made me laugh right out loud - the eyes on the topiaries are brilliant, and I love that laughing stamp! As for the wreath card, it's just lovely. And the sentiment is perfection! Thanks so much for playing with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week :)
