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."

Snowflakes at my Door

Good afternoon. 
We are being hit with yet another rain storm here in South Carolina. 
I am so sick of the rain.... thankful for rain... but still sick of it.
Does that even work? lol!

Anyway, I am here with another fun Christmas card. I have been 
enjoying the cooler weather (it's been in the low to high 70's the past few days)
That means I get to open curtains and light a few fall smelling candles. 
When the sun is beaming and the temps are so hot, my AC can't keep up and
I have to keep the house looking like a dungeon. No fun!!! :(

I created this card using the Fresh Brewed Designs Rubber Stamp

The actual image just has the topiaries plain. I drew in the snowman faces and buttons. 
I love to add fun things to the topiaries for different seasons and holidays. 

I used patterned paper from the American Crafts HOT COCOA stack. 
The Kraft paper was embossed using a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. 
I added some silver and crystal stickles to the card for an extra touch of sparkle! 

I chose a monochromatic theme for this card because I love how simple, yet beautiful 
it is. It makes the card look old fashioned, simple, warm, and inviting. And is much different 
than my normal bright, bold style. 

Thank you for stopping by!

I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed day.
