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!

CottageCutz Heart Rose Wreath

Happy Monday everyone!

I have a card to show you today using a new die from CottageCutz, the Heart Rose Wreath!

I just LOVE this new die! I paired it with the bird from the Bluebird die that I placed inside the wreath. I cut everything out in white cardstock and used chalk inks and make-up applicators to color the pieces. These are the dies that I used on this.

I embossed the bottom portion of the card base, added some Cotton Candy Baker's Twine, made a bow, and added some pearls, Liquid Pearls, and a charm. Super easy card to make!

Thanks for stopping by!
