Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!


I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Golden Bath Time


Happy Wednesday!

Today I have another card using the Pampered Pooch Collection from Heartfelt Creations. This week with an adorable golden retriever having a bath! I love these golden images, especially where I have a golden retriever myself :) Here is my card!



Aren't they cute? As soon as I saw this collection, I couldn't wait to color this little guys!

The "frame" I created for the image is made with one of the card panels from the designer papers that I matted with green and added to a brown card base. The images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps...my favorite way to color! The 2 little goldens were die cut with a matching die. The Best Wishes tag was die cut from the designer papers.

In case you're interested...here is my golden retriever, Bailey! The sweetest boy ever!




This picture was taken in my craft room by my desk...he's waiting for me to move the cords so he can lay down. Such a sweet face :)

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!

Papered Pooch Missing You


Happy Wednesday!!!

It's the second Wednesday of the month which means it's time for the newest release from Heartfelt Creations!!! This month it's all about puppies! Actually dogs, but they're all puppies to me! Here is a little write-up about the collection:

There’s nothing better than sharing time with your four legged fur baby, soaking in the adoration found in their bright eyes, the love displayed through their wagging tails and those endless supplies of slobbery kisses!  Whether you’re enjoying the antics of a young energy filled and mischievous puppy, or the relaxed and laid back company of an older furry friend, you are sure to fall in love with the new Pampered Pooch Collection by Heartfelt Creations!  This newest paper collection is filled with adorable fun loving illustrations of heartwarming pooches, their favorite treats, and pretty floral touches all set against beautiful shades of denim blues, grassy greens, chocolate browns and crisp creams.  The four captivating cling stamp sets include charming illustrations of man’s best friends at play, sitting pretty and even causing just a slight paw-full of trouble.  These adorable images have been coupled with a multitude of sentiments perfect for so many different occasions and are ideal for the young and the young at heart!  Cute dimensional pooch themed embellishments such as doggie bone shaped treats, paw prints, collars and of course a collection of fun loving furry friends themselves are easy to achieve when pairing the coordinating cling stamps and die combinations. So relax, get creative and celebrate great memories of canine friends both past and present, create a little something special for that puppy adoring friend who’s going through a “ruff” time, or simply lay back and bask in the joy of life as our wet nosed, fur covered friends do as we share with you the Pampered Pooch Collection…drool not included!

Here is my first creation with this collection!



This little guy is so cute! I love the paw print designer paper for the background too. The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. This is a fairly quick card to put together once you have the coloring done!

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see what the designers have for you! So many cute projects!

Violet Blushing Rose Swirl


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for the new Blushing Rose Collection release from Heartfelt Creations! Here is a little more about the collection.

Soft in hues and striking in patterns, this newest rose themed release will have you reminiscing of old fine bone china, lace tablecloths, and elegantly wallpapered sitting rooms. Delicate images of swirling roses, fluttering butterflies and vintage scripted postcards nestled among old fashioned wallpaper like stripes, beautiful brocades and decorative lace accents have been gently set against calming tones of pale yellows, mixed blends of greenish blues, and soft lilacs. Lovely rose clustered embellishments featuring open blossoms, delicate rose buds and swirling foliage, along with a charming banner are handsome embellishments ideal for bringing a touch of old world charm to all of your paper crafting creations. Stunningly shaped roses in vintage yellow hues, paired with charming shades of muted blues bring greetings of Friendship, Thanks, Get Well Wishes and Thoughts of Encouragement. Simply add a touch of flower shaping, a kiss of ink, along with a sprinkling of glitter and your creations are ready to be assembled and gifted!

For my card this week I used the Blushing Rose Swirls Set for this beautiful flower image and the matching Blushing Rose Swirls Die. The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits and popped onto a partial embossed white mat. The sentiment, stamped below the embossed area, is from the Encouraging You Set.

Pink Classic Rose Thank You


Happy Wednesday!

It's that time of the month for Heartfelt Creations' new collection to be released! This month we have the Classic Rose Collection! I LOVE roses, so this one is one of my favorites to date!

Beautiful in color, exquisite in fragrance, and ever so dignified, the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens.  Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection!  Filled with delicate illustrations of roses ranging from buds, to full blossoms, rose wreaths and flower filled vines, the three cling stamp sets and coordinating dies included in this assembling will have you building gorgeous rose gardens filled with varying sizes of dimensional flowers as realistic as those found in nature themselves.  The captivating decorative paper collection will whisk you away to perfectly manicured rose filled grounds, serene meadows where brooks babble and wild roses hold their heads high, and alluring views from charming old world buildings clad in weathered brick and vining florals.  The handsome color palette of regal purples, deep brick like reds, rich corals and leafy greens filled with delicate swirls, stunning brickwork and floral patterns, along with tender handwritten script are among just a few of the magnificent elements found within this graceful paper assembling. So join us as we slow down, enjoy the view and take some time to linger and smell the roses.

Here is my first creation with this beautiful collection!




I used the Classic Rose Cling and Classic Vines Cling Sets for the flowers and leaves creating various size flowers. These were done using Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on Natural White cardstock and coloring with chalk inks and make-up applicators. The Eyelet Oval Die was used for the scalloped edge oval and the solid center oval. I heat embossed the sentiment on the solid oval using Gold Embossing Powder and edged the oval with a Gold Leafing Pen. The background mat behind the oval is from the Classic Rose Paper Collection.

Snowman Waving Hello


Happy Wednesday!

This week I have another Christmas/Winter card for you using the Snow Kissed Collection from Heartfelt Creations! This time I'm using the other snowman image from the Frolicking Frosty Set. Last week I used the skating snowman, this week I'm using the waving snowman.




This little guy is so cute! I colored him and the ornaments with pencils and mineral spirits. The image was stamped twice so I could add a second snowman over the image to "pop" it over the first. There is a matching die for the snowman.

The snowflakes were stamped with Nautical Blue Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also added a little color to some areas of the snowflakes using a Dove Blender Pen and the blue ink. These all have matching dies so you can easily cut them out and add to your card. I used foam tape to add them giving them a little depth.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to what the talented ladies have come up with for you!

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge #246-247 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

Blessings!
