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!

Sunrise Lily Wishes

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration!  Today I have a fairly easy card for you, once again using the Sunrise Lily Collection.

The mat/frame is from the Sunrise Lily Paper Collection which I created by die cutting the center using the Cut Mat Create 2B Die. I stamped this beautiful inspirational verse from the Sunrise Lily Wishes Set on white cardstock to place behind the frame opening.

The flowers are from the Sunrise Lily Swirls Set that I colored with pencils and mineral spirits, then die cut with the matching Sunrise Lily Swirls Die. I used Heart of Gold Prills for the flower centers and adhesive pearls to embellish the card.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week! Emma Lou has also announced the Design Team Semi-Finalists!!!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
