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!

Especially for You - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!  This week I have another card made with the new Floral Key Collection.  This time I used blues with the beautiful browns in the collection.

The mat behind the images is one of the card fronts from the designer papers.  These card fronts make things a lot easier!  The flower image was colored with pencils and fussy cut.  The key is an extra key colored and popped over the image.  The sentiment oval was stamped on the designer paper, colored, and a extra key was popped over it.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
