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 Because I Love You!

Good Morning!
It has been TOO long since I have had the chance to post! 
This card was created for our new Month long Prize challenge for  Feb at Freshly Brewed Challenges. We are wanting to see any projects that show LOVE!!! 
I chose to create a friend themed card... you will see why later in this post :D HEHEHE
I made a matching card and little envelope. This little envelope has a secret inside... 
as you lift the bag open, there is a little slider in there that pulls the goodies up for the recipient to see right away! Genius right?!? This template is actually called Surprise Purse. It can be found at Creations by AR along with MANY OTHER AWESOME TEMPLATES!
 I used my NEW twinery twine (and older twine in maraschino ) to decorate this felt heart. The new color I used is called FLAX. It is a really light brown and goes very well with the kraft paper, dont you think? I tried to stitch it on with a blanket stitch, but found I am not soo good at that one... need more practice definitely! :D
Here is the card all alone. I used my Fresh Brewed Designs La Dulce Vita (the sweet life) rubber stamp, an OLD woodblock stamp by stampcraft called love for the sentiment, a marvy scalloped punch for the white circle, my nestabilities punch for the lacy scalloped circle die, American Craft Bookshelf Alcott designer paper, PTI Kraft paper, prismacolor markers, twiinery twine in flax and a 5x7 embossing folder.
Wait for it...
Wait for it.....
Look at this again.. inside the envelope... 
what does that say? Oh! you have a chance to win a free rubber stamp!
How you ask?
