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."

In EVERYTHING Give Thanks - Pumpkin

Good Morning!
I have two projects to share with you.
I have a NEW Word Art Wednesday challenge project and
a matching card for a NEW Freshly Brewed Designs challenge. 

This weeks WAW Anything Goes Challenge scripture is FREE for you!
*it always is*
You do not have to use it to create your project. 
The challenges are always anything goes using family friendly 
and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. 
This weeks WAW Sponsors: Daydream Designs  and Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co.

We also have a new Freshly Brewed Challenge!
This challenge is to create anything using COLORS OF FALL.
Simple enough right?

Here are my projects:

This was such a fun project to make. I actually cleaned out my craft room. We moved furniture around and I HAD to go through EVERYTHING!!! So I totally did SHOP MY STASH this week. I cut my scrap pile in half by setting a box aside for some friends to go through. The rest will go to a few little girls at dance. I taught a few girls how to make cards and they are hooked.

I cut out several circles using the plantin schoolbook cricut cartridge then cut out a large scalloped circle, leaves, and flourishes using the accent essentials cartridge. The image was paper pieced by printing the image onto patterned cardstock. 
The image was cut out using a lacy circles spellbinder die. 
I love the glitter!!! It is called  green agate by Martha Stewart. It is a very light, silvery green. 
So pretty. I outlined the pumpkin using a glue pen an sprinkled glitter over it. 
I used an old watercolor brush from the kids craft supplies to brush away the access glitter. 
For the paper pumpkin, I traced the edges with aleens tacky glue and sprinkled the glitter over it. 

I tried to get a photo of the crystal fine glitter on the edges of the pumpkins leaves and stem, 
but it didn't work out too well for me ;)
Just know its there, lol!

Here is a photo of the top of the pumpkin
that features the free word art wednesday word art file:

And here is a close up of just the little card featuring our newest
digital stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with me today. 
I hope that you enjoyed your stop and that you were inspired to 
create and play along in our challenges 
but most of all to stop for a minute and think about all that the Lord has done for you. 
Good times and hard times. The happy and sad. 
Every moment of every single day He is there with us.
Our father, friend, comforter, teacher ...
He is everything and only wants what is best for us. 

In EVERYTHING give thanks
because He LOVES you!

Have a blessed and happy day,
