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!

Fancy Baby Booties - CottageCutz

Happy Saturday!

Today a have a cute baby “Congratulations” card for you using one of The Scrapping Cottage's  new CottageCutz Dies, Fancy Baby Booties!

I used a cream and brown color combination for this.  The booties were die cut with Natural White Cardstock and colored with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  I used a 4 1/4" square card base make with Fudgesicle Cardstock and a Natural White mat.  The mat was embossed on the top 2/3 with Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the sentiment was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I finished it with adhesive pearls, a bow and a button with a fiber bow.

Here is the die I used:
