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!

Sun Kissed Thank You

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!  This week I have a little thank you note using Sun Kissed flowers and a floral flourish from the Cut Mat Create Collection.

The card base is made using the large rounded rectangle die from the Cut Mat Create Collection.  The sentiment is from the Arianna Bird Haven Set. I cut the floral flourish with white card stock and glued it directly on the card base.  The Sun Kissed flowers are stamped with Victorian Velvet Ink, cut with the matching die and then inked with Razz-Berry Chalk Ink.  I love this Razz-Berry color!  After shaping the flowers I added Prills to the centers and then glued them to the card.  I then added some White Opal Liquid Pearls to the flourish to all a little dimension.  (If you would like a closer look, you can click on the picture for a better view.)

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!  There's a beautiful variety of collections used and I love seeing all the new designers work!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
