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!

Sweet Little One - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration!  This week I have a sweet baby card for you!

I used white and cream/light yellow card stock for the base, mat and die cuts with white embossing for the stamp images.  I love the soft look and think it would work for a boy or girl baby card.  Here's a couple of close ups for you.

I just love these little booties!

Make sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!  Lots of baby projects to check out!  Also, Emma Lou has a stunning sneak peak of the Arianna Blooms Collection being released next week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
