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!

Christmas Quilt Card

Hi there!

I made this Christmas card for someone special who LOVES quilting. I found this tutorial on Split Coast Stampers in the "Resources" section done by Jenna Barber which you can find here.

I saw this back when Jenna first did it and have been wanting to try it out. Just don't look too closely at it! It was my first one, so there are a couple of things I learned that I will do differently on the next one.

Papers: old olive, real red, confetti cream, merry moments dsp (SU)
Ink: black (versafine), old olive (SU)
Stamp: teeny tiny wishes (SU)
Misc: sponge, ribbon, baby rick rack, button chipboard (k&co - glad tidings toys & presents), paperlace II embossing folder (Cuttlebug)

Yippee, another Christmas card made!




  1. Your sister will love this card! You did a very good job.

  2. What a beautiful Christmas card. I made one of these, but mine didn't turn out half as nice as yours. You have inspired me to try again...

  3. Just found your Christmas card through Pinterest. Love the colours you have chosen. It looks crisp, clean and elegant.

  4. I totally love this card. I finally had time today to case it. Thanks for the inspiration.


Thank you for blessing me with your sweet comments!
