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 & Scor-Pal Cross Promotion

Happy Wednesday!

Today we are doing a cross promotion with Scor-Pal. Please visit the Heartfelt Creation blog at and the Scor-Pal blog at Prepare to be blown away with all the amazing project featuring the Scor-Pal and Heartfelt Creations products.

I love my Scor-Pal Products and have been using them for years!  I use the Scor-Pal, Scor-Buddy and Scor-Tape all the time!  I just got the new version of the Scor-Pal that has measures in 1/8" and love that too!  I would be lost without my Scor-Tape, I use it for all my trims, box making, anything that needs extra adhesive power!

For my card today, I used the Summer Season Set with this beautiful Summer image and the Ornate Gateway Die for the window.  This shows the gate closed that I decorated with flowers and vines.


Here is the gate opened showing the beautiful Summer Season Image.  I just love the pinks and greens in the designer papers and colored the image to match.  I used my Prismcolor Pencils and mineral spirits to color of my favorite things to do!

Make sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations and Scor-Pal Blogs to see all the beautiful creations!

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:
