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!

Ice Skating Harriet - North Coast Creations

Hi there!

Today I have a stamp from North Coast Creations called Ice Skating Harriet.  NCC is a new stamp company from the Our Daily Bread Designs' owner Kelley.  Their website should be up and running sometime in August, but if you would like to purchase this little cutie you can contact Kelley at ODBD.

Here is my creation using Harriet...

As soon as I saw this image, I thought of pinks and greens and I had the perfect paper for it, Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.  I only had scraps left from, so I had to work around using only small pieces.  The little ornament shape on the bow is a leftover from Christmas cards last year.

For all ingredients used:

Stamps: Ice Skating Harriet (North Coast Creations)

Paper: Solar White (Neenah), Eskimo Kisses (Basic Grey), Yultide (K&Co), Pink Pirouette (SU)

Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)

Accessories: Bow-Easy, White Seam Binding, Sweet Heart Twine (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Labels 23 (Spellbinders), adhesive pearls (Want-2-Scrap), mineral spirits, Snowflakes #8 Embossing Folder (Sizzix), Joys of the Season Cartridge (Cricut), Prismacolor Pencils
