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!

ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTCODBD51)

Here it is!!! My first post as an Our Daily Bread Team Member!!! How exciting!!!

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD51)! The Challenge this rotation is all about 2012! Or, at least the numbers that make up the year. Like 2-0-1-2. The numbers are a formula or recipe for how much we can add or not add to our card! Any stamps are allowed; however, if you use ODBD stamps you are entered twice for the win! Play as often as you like! The more you play the more you increase you chances to win!

2- Use two of something

0- Use zero of something (list what it dp? No die cuts?)

1- Use one of something

2- Use two of something else

For today's card, I am using ODBD Scripture Collection 2. I love Proverbs 3:5,6. This Collection of Scripture Verses, along with the other collections, can be used for a lot of different themes and I love having them on hand. I actually had this already stamped and die-cut from a while back and had it filed in my recipe card box with my other "leftovers" from projects. If you missed my post about how I organize my die-cuts, mats, card bases, images, etc, you can read about it here on the post!

Please stop by and check out the other team members who are playing along this week. They have some beautiful creations to share with you!



Paper: Sahara Sand (SU), Palo Verde, Safari (Bazzills), Heritage Scrapper's Solution (Hot Off the Press).

Ink: Rich Razzleberry (SU).

Accessories: Ribbon, paper flower, adhesive pearls button, run-ons (all Michael's).
