In all things God works for the good of those who love him. Romans 8:28

truth

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.
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Little Snowflake

I think there is a bit of magic in snowflakes. Not the monstrous blizzards mind you, but the giant snowflakes that fall down slowly and seem to dance their way down to the ground. I know I am not one to talk because we NEVER get snow here. I remember playing in it every winter as a child before we moved to the beach, but my mom gets the ICK face when it is mentioned. lol!!! I still think that it is beautiful. The glittery glistening white blanket that covers the earth. How God took such special care in making every single snowflake different and unique and beautiful... much like he did with us :).

(see that photo above, I found it on the internet.. but it is a photo of the train tracks in the tiny little town I was born and raised in. This photo makes my heart smile)



Well, enough chatting, I am here to share a card and some fun. 
Today is Mocha Manic Monday at Fresh Brewed Designs. Every first Monday of the month we offer a special deal. This month we have a NEW image that has been released TODAY and is half price for TODAY ONLY!

Meet and welcome to the FBD family - LITTLE SNOWFLAKE



Again, I dug through my big ol scrap paper box (really it is getting RIDICULOUS!)
I used the MFT Diecut - fresh cut grass and cut out the 'icicles' using white cardstock and white polka-dotted vellum.  The glitter is martha stewart chunky glitter: Snow, and I colored the ornament and lips with a gel writer glitter pen. The image was colored using prismacolor and copic markers. 


For this card I used the Adorable sketch found at
Jingle Belles Challenge Blog
