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!

Starburst Notecard

Happy Monday!

Today I have a little notecard and matching envelope to show you using leftover pieces from my last project, the Happy Anniversary Easel Card.  I've used the Starburst Flower, Greenery and Elegant Envelope CottageCutz Dies.

This is a super quick and easy project to put together for a pretty notecard to go with a gift.  The envelope was made using black card stock that I added the large Starburst Flower to using Le Creme designer paper and then just added a rhinestone flower to the center.  The notecard was made using more of the designer paper for the card base and flower and then black for the Greenery.  I finished it off with three little rhinestones on the bottom corner.

These are the dies I used:

Project Recipe:

Paper: Le Creme (DCWV), Black (Recollections)
