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!

Everything is Coming Up Daisies!

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at Elphine House Australia!  The new Challenge is to incorporate daisies on your creation!  That shouldn't be too hard to do, where a lot of Elisabeth Bell's stamps have daisies on them and you can use ANY of her stamps not just EHA's!

For the challenge this week, I'm using a new stamp from Elphine House Australia called "Carrie: Three Wheeling" adorable! 

She has such a sweet face! Her tricycle reminds me of when my boys were little!    I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and mineral spirits to match these beautiful Eva papers from Basic Grey.

For all ingredients used:

Stamp: Carrie: Three Wheeling (Elphine House Australia)
Paper: Solar White (Neenah), Brocade (Bazzills), White card base (Georgia Pacific), Eva Designer Papers (Basic Grey), Certainly Celery (SU)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine), Certainly Celery (SU)
Accessories: White and Black gel pens, White Opal Liquid Pearls, Prismacolor Pencils, Mineral Spirits, ribbon & lace (Michaels), Moss Seam Binding & White Netting (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Fanciful Flourish (Cheery Lynn Designs), Labels 18 (Spellbinders), adhesive pearls (Want-2-Scrap), sponge, Petite Petals Punch (McGill)

You can use any Elisabeth Bell stamp or image to enter the Challenge!  The winner will be picked randomly and will receive 2 stamps of their choice!

Hope you can join us this week!

I'm also entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #26 - Flowers - using dies or punches which you can find here
