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!

All Glammed Up Background

Happy Wednesday!

It's that time of the week to give you a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations! This week I have a card made with the All Glammed Up Background image.

I also added an additional flower spray and fancy shoe using the same image and matching dies to "pop" on the main image. Here's a close up of the pretty shoe.

I colored the images with pencils and mineral spirits and added dots of Platinum Liquid Pearls here and there.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the design team this week.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
