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!

Frolicking Frosty Skating

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! This week I have another Christmas card to show you this time using the Snow Kissed Collection that was released on August 10th.

I used the Frolicking Frosty Set and matching Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die for the snowman. The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits and embellished with stickles and glitter. The "frame" was created using the Snow Kissed Paper Collection and die cutting the center with a Cut Mat Create Die.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:
