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!

Sweetheart Lovebirds

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I have a darling Valentine's Day card for you using the Sweetheart Lovebirds CottageCutz Die from The Scrapping Cottage!

Aren't these little guys adorable?  I think they are the cutest thing!

To make my card, I cut all the die pieces with white card stock and colored them with chalk inks and make up applicators.  The colors I used are Perfect Plumeria, Thatched Straw, Aloe Vera (VersaMagic), and Mocha Mama (Powder Puffs).  I also shaped some of the pieces a little with my McGill Tool Kit & Mat.  Here's a close up for you.

I used a white card base and added a white mat embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (SU).  The sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU) is stamped with black ink.  I made the bow with Cotton Candy Baker's Twine (Really Reasonable Ribbon) and my Bow-Easy.  I glued one of the little flowers from the die on the bow center.  Then I added some adhesive pearls to finish!

Here is the die I used:

I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #117 - Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by today!
