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!

Your Heart's Delight

Hi there!

If you're looking for my post on the "4th Anniversary Blop Hop for Our Daily Bread Designs", please "hop" down one post to find it!!!  :-D

This is a card I made for the latest Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #130 to:

Create a card or project that uses both dark and light. Opposite colors; black/white, brown/ivory, deep blue/baby blue, red/pink etc.

This is my submission for the Challenge:

I decide to use a deep blue and baby blue combination.  The blues are actually much darker than they look here, the paper is Night of Navy from Stampin Up.  This week I received a new Spellbinders' Die "Floral Ovals" and the "Elegance" M-Bossibilites Embossing Folder which I used here.  Both of the are GORGEOUS!!!  I fell in love with this Floral Oval the minute I saw it, and I know I'll be using it a lot!

The Scripture Verse Psalm 37:4, is from Our Daily Bread Designs' Scripture Series 2 Set.  This is a wonderful Verse and beautifully designed with the fonts.

For the ingredients I used:

Stamp: Scripture Series 2 (ODBD)
Paper: Solar White (Neenah), light blue cardstock (DCWV Stack), Night of Navy (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), Night of Navy (SU)
Accessories: Classic Ovals Large & Classic Scalloped Ovals Large, Floral Ovals , Elegance M-Bossabilities EF (Spellbinders), Fleur de Lis Punch (EKS) (inside card), adhesive pearls (Want 2 Scrap), button heart, sponge, flowers (Recollections & Michael's $1 bin), Branch with Leaves Die (Sizzix).

That's it for now!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
