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!

Majestic Morning Elegant Tag - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration!  This week I have a beautiful floral tag for you!

The base of the tag is made with Spellbinders 5x7 Elegant Labels 4.  The pretty designer paper mat is from the Raindrops on Rose Paper Collection which I used for the color scheme on the Majestic Morning flowers, Burst of Splendor leaves and Garden Romance butterflies. The white "hearts" tucked behind the flowers are from the Raindrops on Roses Die that I cut into pieces.

If this reminds you of my Majestic Blooms Box I posted last month here, that would be because I made these at the same time!  I really love how both projects turned out with these pretty colors and textures!

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see the beautiful creations by the designers this week!  Also, HC is announcing the new designers and ones that will be leaving the team.  Very sad to see the ladies leave, but I am looking forward to working with the new designers.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge #156 - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers #126 - Cut It Out (die cuts or punches)
Really Reasonable Ribbon #105 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
