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!

Serendipity's Super Simple Christmas Card Challenge

Hi there!

Today I have a card I made for Serendipity's latest Challenge to make a simple Christmas card. I don't usually do things the simple way, but I thought I would give it a try. Here's what I came up with.

Note: Sorry, the picture isn't very good and it definitely doesn't do it justice. The mats and image are actually a beautiful rich olive green.

I used the "Holidy Bundle" stamp from Serendipity and simply embossed it with a dark green embossing powder called "Old Fashioned Olive" from Stampin Up on Very Vanilla paper (SU). I colored the berries and border with an English Red Le Plume marker. Matted it with dark green paper to match the powder called Capers from Bazzills. Then I just embossed the card front with Petals a Plenty embossing folder from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU) which I colored with Always Artichoke marker (SU), punched with word window punch, then added the modern label punched in Capers paper. I added 2 adhesive pearls and a bow. That's it! It's actually very quick to make. You could color the bundle itself to make it red and green plaid if you wanted to spend a little more time on it.
