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."

10 things I LOVE

Happy Wednesday to you all!
I have been busy this week spending time with my family and getting things done in the shop, I have not posted as much as usual. I have missed you guys :D

(minus the pumpkins :D)
by Fresh Brewed Designs
This week at Freshly Brewed Challenges we are looking for all of those SHAPED cards. This is always a huge challenge for me! I am so not good at making anything BUT an A2 or 5.5 x 5.5 card.

I remembered these lovely romantic papers (and tags and heart shaped cutout) that my friend Tracey sent to me not too long ago as well as was inspired by a card a friend Vanessa created for her August Guest Designer position (yes, you have to wait until then to see it... but it is totally worth the wait!!!) She stamped and cut the girl off of the background to the Spicy Pumpkin Latte rubber stamp. I loved the way it looked and wanted to give it a go myself. I think this card turned out soft and romantic and sweet... and would probably have never happened if not for Vanessa's inspiring creation.

See these roses. I made them all by myself :) I am so proud!! :) lol!!! I really enjoyed making these. So much in fact that I tried (and failed) at three other attempts or styles. I will stick to my original plan with these for now :) Perhaps I will look up some tutorials on paper or ribbon flowers when I get the chance :D who knows!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a day filled with lots of Fresh Brewed Inspiration! HUGS, Smiles and God Bless!!!
