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!

Pink Rose

Hi everybody!

I've made a couple of things this week for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge on Split Coast Stampers. This is my first time doing this and I'm having lots of fun! The challenges can only be accessed by Fan Club members, which I finally am. I have to keep the details about the challenges a secret, but I can give all the others details for it.

I made this card with my OLD rose foam stamp...I think the first set I ever got years ago. I just love this image! I love pink roses too! This is the same stamp I used to make the blue rose card March last year in my Mom's memory. She actually loved pink roses, so I've been wanting to do this in pink for a long time.

I love the way this one came out. I love pink and green together, especially these bright, clear shades.

I'm submitting this to SCS Challenge DTGD11kharmagirl. For papers I used watercolor bouquet (K&co), Chablis (bazzills), and old olive (SU). For ink I used black (versafine). I colored it with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. For accessories, I used labels four die (Spellbinders), felt bird (puffies), ribbon, twine, adhesive pearls, charm, chain, and jump ring.

Thanks for looking! I have more things to post, so keep an eye out!
