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!

Flowers for You

Hi everyone!

I'm so excited to show you my first ever card as a Design Team Member for Elphine House Australia! This is an ADORABLE image designed and copyrighted by Elisabeth Bell called "Flowers for You". Isn't she sweet?

Here is the inside view.

I colored this in mostly purples in honor of Elphine House Australia's (EHA) purple logo. I used Stamin Up papers, lavender lace, certainly celery, whisper white. Stamps used are Noteworthy and God's Blessings (inside card) by Stampin Up. Miscellaneous items used: modern label punch (SU), framed tulip folder (SU), fence punch (Marth Stewart),Labels 4 (Spellbinders); ribbons, pearl stickers, lace, flowers, white gel pen, black marker, charm all from Michaels or Jo-Anns.

This stamp is offered exclusively at Elphine House Australia. This is a clear polymer stamp and it is now available along with a few other cuties here!

Watch for more of my creations with this new, adorable stamps!
