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."

FBD October Rubber Stamp Release and Blog Hop Day #2

IF you are looking for my FBD HOP DAY #1 CARD GO HERE

Welcome to the Fresh Brewed Designs October Rubber Stamp Release 
and Blog Hop Day 2! If you have hopped during day 1 I imagine you are a bit like me.
Jaw still dropped on the floor. The cards were AMAZING!!!
You can tell everyone is ready for a little Christmas cheer!

For my Hop Day 2 cards I chose to create, again, with 

 For this card I used the Out Of The Box technique. 
It was fun cutting her out this way - but hard choosing the right die or how I wanted to cut her out. 
I also tried to stay with the shabby chic theme for this one. The box that is also a part of this stamp
was removed from this card altogether. 
ALL paper was found in my scrap pile :))and she was colored up using copics and prismacolor markers. 

Challenges for this card include:
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch, Loves Rubber Stamps: out of the box technique,

Her PJs were paper pieced and the image was stamped OVER the tree. 
It appears to be masked off but since the tree is a digi, we all know that will not work. 
 I stamped the little box twice, cut it out and pieced it over the first.
 A little paper piecing and distressing and stickles and Voila - 
my fun and bright little Christmas creation :)
Challenges for this card include:
