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!

CottageCutz - Fancy Perfume Bottles

Hi there!

Today I have a card using a new die from CottageCutz, Fancy Perfume Bottles.

I love the vintage look of these perfume bottles!  I had fun cutting the different color papers and piecing them together to mix them up and match the designer paper.  Here is a picture of the die:

This die is one of MANY new CottageCutz Dies this month that have that vintage look.   There are corsets, furniture, dress forms, purses, etc.  You can visit their store to see more of the new vintage release here.

Card recipe:

Paper: Fairy Belle (Prima), cardstock stack (DCWV)
Ink: Amaretto (Powder Puffs)
Accessories: Fancy Perfume Bottles Die (CottageCutz), sponge, adhesive pearls, lace (Jo-Ann's), Very Vanilla Seam Binding (SU-RAK from Jill), Bow-Easy, flower (RAK from Sabrina)
