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!

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspiration

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for me to show you more inspiration using some new stamps from Heartfelt Creations and also an older set too this time!

On this first card, "Tattered Thank You Swirl", I used two of the new sets Tattered Blossoms Swirls and Heartfelt Expressions for the sentiment.  The flowers are colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  I love this Swirls set because you can do lots of different designs with it. 




Note: Full instructions are at the bottom of the post, and you can always click on the picture to see a better view of it!


On the second card, "Purple Rose Simplicity", I used an older set that I've been wanting a long time named Classic Bella Rose.  HC sent me this set, as well as the matching dies, as a welcome gift for the Design Team...boy was I excited to see it!  I love roses and it's such a pretty set!  The sentiment is from the new set Heartfelt Expressions.




I hope these give you a little inspiration today!   Next Wednesday I will be using the new June Release stamps and are they gorgeous!  You can see a sneak peak of them on the HC Blog if you would like.  You can also see lots more inspiration from the other DT members there on the Blog!

Blessings!

Kathy

    I think this is one of my all time favorites.
