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."

to perk you up ...

Happy Saturday!
It is already a gorgeous day outside. The sun is shining,
birds are singing, the cool breeze is blowing, and God loves me. 
What could be better?
I am excited to be done with my housework for the day. 
I worked all week and am able to just relax some today. 
The kids and I will do some cooking, creating, and reading. 

I have been somewhat LACKING in my own mojo...
until I recieved an email from my friend, Jeannie, letting me know about a FUN
COFFEE THEMED CHALLENGE at The Card Concept challenge blog.
Coffee? Well Duh! That is right up my ally!
Then, while I was on facebook yesterday for one of my pop in's throughout the day
and stumbled upon a technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
I don't USUALLY do anything that takes a few steps to create. (drying time, fancy folds, etc.)
I am usually rushing and don't have time... but this one looked fun so I dug deep and found a little patience
and allowed myself to be ok with not completing a card in 5 minutes ;) lol. 
Another thing I don't often do is play along in challenges at SCS. 
I am not even sure if I am allowed to enter my card, but regardless, I had fun creating it :)

Fresh Brewed Designs Rubber Stamps:
Sentiment from the SHE LOVES LATTES set
Latte Cup from the CARD BACKER stamp

Materials to create background:

Painters tape :)
Smooch paint: Black

Other materials:
Papertrey inc Cardstock: White and Black
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
Our lovely lady was colored up using copic markers and prismacolor markes. 
(the a little note sentiment was printed in word)

Here is another view of the card so you can see all of the lovely shimmer.
I even put a few drops of the shimmer paint on a tray and brushed the paint
on her jeans, then added some dots to her pants using the black smooch.
It was fun getting all messy.
And believe me! I DID!
My glimmer mist bottle was stopped up, and my inpatient self kept pumping away anyway...
and ended up with blue hands... then I took the cap off and tried pumping it to break 
it loose... but all it did was shoot blue ink out of the bottom and all over my foot! 
HAHAHA!!! So, in making this card, I also was able to tattoo myself and make
myself shimmery beautiful too :D hehehe! 

Thank you for stopping by today.
I do hope you have a lovely and blessed weekend.
