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!

Wedding Birds - CottageCutz

Happy Thursday!

Today I have a cute Wedding Save the Date card for you using 2 new CottageCutz dies from The Scrapping Cottage, Wedding Birds and Save the Date Dies.

The Wedding Birds Die was cut with white, black, gray and a tiny piece of Enchanted Designer Paper (Bo Bunny) for the bridal veil.  The Save the Date Die was cut with a piece of peach card stock (DCWV).

I started with a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" black card base, then added a white mat with the bottom embossed with Pirouette Embossing Border.  The designer paper behind the birds is also from Enchanted.  After assembling the dies together, I added some black trim, adhesive pearls, a bow and a rhinestone flower.

These are the dies I used:

Card recipe:

Paper: White, Black (Recollections), peach (DCWV Stack), Enchanted (Bo Bunny)
Accessories: Ribbon, Bow-Easy Tool, black trim (Jo-Ann's), rhinestone flower, adhesive pearls, Pirouette Embossing Border Folder (Cuttlebug - Anna Griffin)

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
