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 - Boo!

Happy Saturday everyone! 

Today I have a cute Halloween card using 3 new Fall CottageCutz Dies.  From the Halloween Release I use Scarecrow Pumpkin and Spooky Ironwork Sign, and from the Harvest Release I used Harvest Fall Corner Dies! 

Aren't these too cute? 

I used a bunch of different colored cardstock (mostly scraps) and ink for this.  I shaped some of the pieces and inked in some shading and shadows.  The background is a piece of Iced Cocoa Coredinations Cardstock that is embossed with Triad Leaves Embossing Folder.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but the card base is black.   Here's a close-up of the Scarecrow Pumpkin with Harvest Fall Corner.

Here's a close-up of the Spooky Ironwork Sign.  I used a black marker to write "BOO!" on it.

These are the dies I used on this.

Thanks for stopping by today!





  1. This is just too cute!!! Love all the details.

  2. Oh Kathy I just love this little scene, great use of all the dies!


Thank you for blessing me with your sweet comments!
