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!

Simply Christmas

Hi there!

I decided I wanted to try to make a "simple" Christmas card. Simple isn't necessarily easy for me to do. I bought the Sizzix embossing folder and die cut set at Jo-Ann's a couple of months ago. I wanted to use it to try making a simple card I could make for some of my Christmas cards this year.

This is what I came up with so far.

The card front is embossed with the A2 folder, and the ornament is the die cut included in the set. Very easy to make and I like the way it came out except for the scalloped oval. It should be up higher, but it's covering up something I tried and didn't work out, LOL. I will defintely do something different on the next one.

I used Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set from Stampin Up for this. The paper is iced cocoa from Coredinations and red rock from Bazzills. Ink is black from Versafine. Accessories used are nailheads metal stickers, button, fibers, scalloped oval punch (SU), Ornament with Flowers and Winter Botanicals both from Sizzix.

Thanks for looking!
