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!

Baby Buggy - CottageCutz

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I have a cute baby card for you using the Baby Buggy, Best Wishes, and Fancy Floral Lace Border CottageCutz Dies from The Scraping Cottage.

To make my card, I started with a square 4 1/4" white card base and added a piece of Fancy Floral Lace Border cut with light green paper (Chick-a-doo from S.E.I) to the bottom.  I cut a light green mat (3 1/2" x 4 3/8") and an embossed white mat slightly smaller and glued them together.  I folded Baby Pink Seam Binding in half, wrapped it around the bottom of the mats and glued it in place.  I then added the mats to the card with pop dots just above the border.

The Best Wishes Die was cut with the light green paper and glued to the mat as pictured.  The Baby Buggy Die was cut with white, light green, and a flowered designer paper from Nana's Nursery - Baby Gift Paper from DCWV.  I shaded the white pieces of the buggy body with Pixie Dust VersaMagic Ink and  glued all the pieces together as shown using a mixture of the light green and flowered papers.  The buggy was added to the card with pop dots.  I added a larger flower to the buggy with Diamond Stickles in the center.  I made a triple loop bow and added a smaller flower with White Opal Liquid Pearls added to the center.

These are the dies I used.

Card Recipe:

Paper: White (Recollections), Chick-a-doo (S.E.I.), Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl (DCWV)
Ink: Pixie Dust (VersaMagic)
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (SU), Bow-Easy Tool, Baby Pink Seam Binding (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Diamond Stickles, White Opal Liquid Pearls (Ranger).
