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!

Bella Rose Lattice - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!

This week I used an older set, Bella Rose Lattice Background, to make my card...I just love roses and couldn't resist using this set!

I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits and fussy cut it so I could pop it on the yellow to make it stand out.  The yellow mat is cut using the Timeless Rectangles Die and is popped on a purple card base.  I added a purple bow and button to finish it off. 

Here's a little close up:
