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!

Seasonal Bird Card

Hi there!

I made this Best Wishes card using the Seasonal Birds stamp set from Stampin Up. This set makes really cute cards even though the images are small. I like that they're quick and easy to color where they are so small.

I love these soft colors together of yellows and teals. The teal paper is from the Linen Closet paper stack from DCWV. I really like these papers, and have used them a lot.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations from SU.
Other papers used are so saffron, very vanilla from SU, and the tan is from my stash of scraps.
For ink I used timber brown from Stazon.
Miscellaneous items used: adhesive pearls, rhinestones, ribbon, Rebecca EF (Cuttlebug), large labels, classic scalloped ovals large (Spellb), deco fan punch (inside card) (MS), prismacolor pencils, gold jelly roll pen.

That's it for now! Thanks for looking!
