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 Wedding Chapel

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today I have a center step card I made using two of CottageCutz Dies, Wedding Chapel and Blossom Branch.  I just love these dies, they are so much fun to work with!

I cut out all the pieces with white cardstock and colored them with inks using sponges and make-up applicators.  Some of the pieces were shaped a little with a molding mat and stylus.  Here's a close-up of the die pieces.   I love how the flowers came out with the blue ink and liquid pearls.

These are the CottageCutz Dies that I used.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday #66 - Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon #68 - Spring Colors & Ribbon
Cutie Pie Challenge #38 - Pretty Pastels & Cute

I hope you like my project and it give you a little inspiration!
