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!

Hang In There!

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for me to share a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! This week I'm using more of the Sugar Hollow Collection, this time with the You're A Hoot Set.

These little owls are so cute! Love how the little one is hanging upside down!

I colored the owl image with pencils and mineral spirits and die cut it with the matching die. The flowers are fussy cut from the designer papers which I added some Prills to the centers.

The oval is made with the designer papers and white cardstock using the Eyelet Oval Die. Love this die, so pretty! I stamped the sentiment directly on the pink oval. The green background was also taken from the designer papers.

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

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
