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!

It's a creative, fun exploration of the vintage spirit. The Floral Key Collection will unlock your imagination to creating incredibly beautiful, "fine art" cards.

Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by December 3rd to be eligible to win the entire Floral Key Collection valued at $200. The winner will be announced on December 4th on the Heartfelt Creations blog.

Now for my first creation with this beautiful new collection!

The focal image on this is from the Floral Keys & Locket Set that I colored with pencils and mineral spirits and fussy cut.  There is also a second layer on the image from the Burnished Key Set along with the 2 keys in the top corner that were cut with the matching die.

And here's a little side view showing the different layers.

The ticket with the "Make a Wish" sentiment is cut from the designer paper.  So many beautiful elements in the designer papers to create with!  Both the main mat and the image mat are from the designer papers also.

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the gorgeous creations by the designers this week and leave a comment for a chance to win the entire collection!

I'm submitting this to the latest Word Art Wednesday Challenge #108 - Anything Goes.

  1. Hi Kathy from freezing cold snowy Cumberland. I read your post and went To the HFC website. The exciting news is that there are 4 retailers very close by. Two across the river form my house, one I go to occasionally and that is such good news. Your cards are always breathtakingly beautiful. The DSP is such a subtle backdrop for the amazing die cuts. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation with us this week.

  3. This is so pretty, Kathy. I don't know how you get your colors to look muted, and soft like this - but it's amazing. Thank you SO very much for sharing with us. I enjoy seeing your art so much, and I am grateful when you link up. Every piece you make is just SO lovely, and I love visiting to take a real close look. Thank you!
