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!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge #77 - Psalm 103:2

Happy Wednesday everyone!

This is my last post as a Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday!  It's been a fun month of creating with the beautiful word art they provide to us!  I really love the font on this Psalm 103:2 verse for this week!

I made this card with a rich brown monotone.  The ribbon looks a little red in the picture, but it's actually a gorgeous brown color.  The flowers are from an older JustRite Stamp called Plant a Little Love that I colored with pencils and mineral spirits.  The image was then fussy cut, shaped and "popped" on the die cut with the verse.  The background is a piece of tan cardstock that I embossed with the Paper Lace II Embossing Folder and inked with Mocha Mama Ink.

Card recipe:

Stamps: Plant a Little Love (JustRite)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso (SU), tan (stash)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Accessories: Brown Sheer Organza with Satin Center (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Paper Lace II Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), charm, brad, adhesive pearls (Recollections), Bow-Easy, Brown Gala Glitz (Art Glitter), Decorative Labels 8 (Spellbinders), mineral spirits, Prismacolor Pencils: Peachy Beige, Light Umber, Dark Brown, Espresso, Black

If you would like to join in the challenge this week you can use the word art they provide on their Blog or anything uplifting/encouraging.  You can read more about it here on their Blog and also see all the beautiful creations from the talented design team!
