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!

Leaping Frogs

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations! Today I have another cute card using Heartfelt Creations' Winking Frog Collection of stamps, dies and designer papers.

This was a super easy card to put together once the coloring of the frogs was done. I stamped the frogs on white cardstock, colored them with pencils and mineral spirits and cut them with the matching die. I then stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, popped the frogs on the bottom and added it to a card base matted with one of the card panels from the designer papers. So easy to put together!

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the designers this week! Emma Lou also has a new video tutorial for you on how to make paper floral corsages.

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:
