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!

Pampered Pooch Missing You

Happy Wednesday!!!

It's the second Wednesday of the month which means it's time for the newest release from Heartfelt Creations!!! This month it's all about puppies! Actually dogs, but they're all puppies to me! Here is a little write-up about the collection:

There’s nothing better than sharing time with your four legged fur baby, soaking in the adoration found in their bright eyes, the love displayed through their wagging tails and those endless supplies of slobbery kisses!  Whether you’re enjoying the antics of a young energy filled and mischievous puppy, or the relaxed and laid back company of an older furry friend, you are sure to fall in love with the new Pampered Pooch Collection by Heartfelt Creations!  This newest paper collection is filled with adorable fun loving illustrations of heartwarming pooches, their favorite treats, and pretty floral touches all set against beautiful shades of denim blues, grassy greens, chocolate browns and crisp creams.  The four captivating cling stamp sets include charming illustrations of man’s best friends at play, sitting pretty and even causing just a slight paw-full of trouble.  These adorable images have been coupled with a multitude of sentiments perfect for so many different occasions and are ideal for the young and the young at heart!  Cute dimensional pooch themed embellishments such as doggie bone shaped treats, paw prints, collars and of course a collection of fun loving furry friends themselves are easy to achieve when pairing the coordinating cling stamps and die combinations. So relax, get creative and celebrate great memories of canine friends both past and present, create a little something special for that puppy adoring friend who’s going through a “ruff” time, or simply lay back and bask in the joy of life as our wet nosed, fur covered friends do as we share with you the Pampered Pooch Collection…drool not included!

Here is my first creation with this collection!

This little guy is so cute! I love the paw print designer paper for the background too. The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. This is a fairly quick card to put together once you have the coloring done!

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see what the designers have for you! So many cute projects!
