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 think I need an extra cuppa joe!

Everyone (but me so far) has been sick. 
My whole house.
The flu one dr said. 
They have SOMETHING. 
Not really fevers as much as an irritating cough and runny nose -
and being up all night long. 
I am tired... but blessed and happy to be here taking care of them. 
(still crossing my fingers that I don't catch it though)
(is that mean?)
I did think I was getting sick earlier this week. Thankfully it was just a migraine. 

Another fun thing is that my computer is acting wackado!
I have tried to log on a few  mornings and NOTHING.
Windows wont load. I had a friend lovingly inform me that Kaspersky 
was acting a little 'persky' and messed up her computer.
She let me know to NEVER get it. The new version wasn't working well with the version of Windows she had or something like that.  Well, I had already installed
it a week or two prior to her email. I told my husband and hoped for the best. 
A few months later... and here we go. I am not sure if Kaspersky is the 'K'ulpret,
but that's all I have to go on right now... sigh... been backing up files and saving things
'computer willing'.

Another thing that happened was that I was unalbe to get my Fussy and Fancy card
to my sweet friend Sheryl in time to have her add it to their post today. 
I did have it made earlier this week! PROMISE! Just my comptuer and sick
people had me all flustered and limited ... so please forgive me for that. The FnF team 
has created some AMAZING projects for their current challenge RIBBON and SNOWFLAKES
Check it out and play along HERE

Here is a card I created for their challenge -
which also works for our FRESHLY BREWED CHALLENGES

Images used:

I used some brads that I have had stashed for YEARS as well as a MFT Grass die cut
to create the snowy feel. I used American Craft papers from the Craft Fair set.
The sheet music paper was from my scrap pile. 
I stamped the image to overlap the tree, then fussy cut and layered them
together to create this soft and fun little home for Christmas scene. 

Next up is another card featuring the same digi:
I paired it this time with one of everyone's favorite FBD Rubber Stamps:

Pretty sassy, right?
I used the current Splitcoast Stampers sketch for this card. 
The I love you dp is from paper studio, the snowflakes are from the
pebbles home for christmas stack and the green dots are from my stash.
I colored the ornaments with stickles. I added some heart shaped ribbon
to the tree. I think it makes the perfect garland for this, don't you?

All images were colored using prismacolor and copic markers. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
I do have one more bit of news before you go!
