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."

I made some popcorn trim for a few cards. You can see the Grace and Daniel one HERE 
 Here is a close up of the popcorn on that card:

and stop by tomorrow to see the second card in the FBD October Rubber Release and Blog Hop!

                                 (( I will edit tomorrows post with a link to that card as well ))

 Here is simply how it was created. 
I used twinery twine, tulip puffy paint and a heat gun.
 Lay the twine on a heat proof surface such as a ceramic tile as I did. 
Then place dots of paint across the twine as long as you want your popcorn string to be.
 Heat your 'popcorn' carefully until it puffs up. I like to leave mine on a little longer to sort
of 'brown' it to make it look more realistic, but be careful not to BURN it. 

 See the hint of brown in that piece?
They look pretty.. and puffy, but not really like popcorn. 
To make that magic happen, carefully flip over your string.
See - it is still wet underneath! Use your heat gun again to heat the under side.
This is how you will get the popcorn pieces to look like the real deal!
Here is a peak for tomorrows hop post:

I hope you liked my simple little tutorial. 
Have fun creating!
