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 Christmas Tree

Hi there!

I have a new Christmas card I made with a stamp set I recently bought used. It's been around a while, but I think it's pretty. I bought this pink embossing powder, and I thought this image is perfect for embossing.

I've been saying I want to do pinks for Christmas, so here you go! Who says Christmas has to be red and green anyway! I guess it doesn't really matter what the colors are, as long as you remember the REAL reason for Christmas!

The picture of this really doesn't do it justice...I need to take a photography class or something!

For stamps I used Scandinavian Season, Short & Sweet from Stampin Up. Papers are solar white (Neenah) and Chablis (Brazzill). I love this pink color! I used versa mark for the images and embossed with party pink embossing powder from Recollections. It matches this paper perfectly. For the other accessories: adhesive pearls, petite petals punch (McGill), modern label punch (SU), classic oval large (Spellbinders), scrollwork embossing folder (Cuttlebug), sponge, and diamond Stickles. It's a good thing I'm detailed!

This is a pretty and fairly quick card to do...I may do a bunch of this for Christmas, and they don't all need to be pink either! Thanks for looking!
