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."

Just a regular ol blog post kind of day...

**forgive me for getting this post up so late. I spent the morning
with my little man at the pediatricians office. He has the flu :(

I have a few projects to share with you...
and I am putting them all into one post because I am taking care of a sick little fellow
as well as trying to keep my little miss happy... sooo here we go!

My first project is for the new challenge at

I always look forward to sharing these projects. It is so encouraging for me to 
visit the blog, read the devotion, see my wonderful co-DT members projects
and to think about all of the wonderful things our Lord does for us every day.
We need Him - and we need each other. That is part of His plan for us.
To love one another, fellowship, be kind to and pray for one another... 
I am so blessed to know that I have so many friends here who I can trust and count on
to be that for me and I thank God for you all every single day.

The lighting for this card is terrible :( I will admit that right off. 
It was taken when it was very overcast and drizzly all day. 
So this is as good as it gets folks!

My daughter's ballet teacher LOVES coffee. 
Possibly as much as I do *wink*
This image was drawn with her in mind. I created this card as part of
a set I am going to be giving her for Christmas.

If you are interested in this image, you can find it in my shop here:

Speaking of CHRISTMAS. This card is also for our month long challenge

 Here is a close up of a little bit of the sparkle. 
I do not have an icicle die, so I used my freshly cut grass diecut. 
I layered the cut cardstock and vellum to give it a more icy feel ;)
The snowflake and fourish were cut using my Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge. 
The background was embossed with a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. 

I also designed a cute little coffee mug for her teacher:
Hope she likes it ;)
