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."

I live for the APPLAUSE!!!

Hello everyone.
I am here today with a somewhat personal post and a big ol'
WOOHOO shout out for my daughter. 
My daughter is a part of a dance troupe who competed last weekend.
My little girl and one other had competed last year with a larger group, 
but the other girls in her class were first timers. 
They scored very high winning a platinum award.
They were all amazing, I was (am) so proud of them.
Of course my daughter knocked my socks off. 
She amazes me every time I get to watch her dance. 
Blown away. 
(photo below. My daughter is the one in the middle doing a tilt)

I wanted to do something special for the girls in this troupe, 
but nothing too cheesy since they are all tweens and everything 
that an adult does is cheesy ;). 
I decided to draw them in their costume and make them all a 
personalized card. I do hope they like it and my daughter isn't 
embarrassed by my giving them out. We shall see ;)

Here they are:


I used an OLD stack of 12x12 papers for these.
MME Garden Vignettes gitter cardstock. 
The other black and white cardstock base is from Papertrey Inc.
I colored the images using copic markers and added some black diamond stickles
to resemble the sequins on their outfits.

Thank you for stopping by today and listening to me brag on my little miss.

Please stop back by Monday for our NEW DIGI RELEASE BLOG HOP!
You won't regret it! ;)
