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 - Floral Clock

Happy Wednesday!

It's time some Heartfelt Creations inspiration!  This week I have a card made with the Floral Clocks and Timeless Clock Sets.

The main image on this is from the Floral Clock Set.  I added a second clock face popped over the image from the Timeless Clock Set.  The images were colored with pencils and mineral spirits to match the colors in the designer papers on the mat.  This mat is one of the beautiful card fronts in the pack.

The lacy medallion matting the image is the Raindrops on Roses Die.  I love this die cut and have found lots of uses for it!

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the designers this week!  You will also see a sneak peak of the next collection coming out April 9th along with a new video from Emma Lou on creating shimmery mix media backgrounds with your stamps.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
