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!

Pink Arianna Blooms - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!  Today's card has lots of white and pink!

I used the Arianna Blooms Collection for the flower and sentiment.  The flower was made with the Arianna Blooms Set and matching die using 3 of the flowers that were stamped and inked on white card stock using Victorian Velvet Ink with a pretty center of Tu-Tu Pink Prills that matched perfectly!  I layered a white and pink die cut from the Arianna Lace Die underneath the flower instead of using leaves.  I love how it came out and it's so pretty with the white background and touch of pink.  The elegant sentiment is from the Arianna Blooms Bouquet Set that I stamped directly on the Decorative Labels One die cut...I love doing that!  Here's a little close up of the flower for you.

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations for you today by the designers!  Emma Lou also has a sneak peek of the new Christmas Collection being released on August 13th!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
