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!

For my card this week, I used the Sweet Little One and Sweet Lullaby Sentiments Sets.

I just love this adorable image!  I colored it with pencils and mineral spirits to match these beautiful Sweet Lullaby designer papers.  I stamped the sentiment just below the image so that they would both fit in the “frame”.  The “frame” was created by using one of the card fronts in the paper collection and cutting out the center.  I love these card fronts, there's lots you can do with them!

The medallion was made with the Sweet Lullaby Sentiments on cream card stock and white embossing powder and inking the top piece with the “Sweet” sentiment on it.

Here's a close up of the image and medallion for you.

There's lot of gorgeous projects on the HC Blog this week!  Be sure to visit and leave a comment for a chance to win the collection!
