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!

Perched Pink Owl

Happy Wednesday!

It's that time again to share a little inspiration with you from Heartfelt Creations! This week I have another Sugar Hollow card for you.

I used one of the card fronts from the designer papers that had a little perched owl. I then added the same owl image popped over it that I had stamped, colored with pencils and mineral spirits and die cut with the matching die. (Ever seen a pink owl? Me neither:) I then added some flowers that I fussy cut from the designer papers to match the ones on the card front.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see what the design team has for you this week!

Also, if you are interested in becoming a designer for Heartfelt Creations, they are doing a design team call right now. Now's your chance to work with a wonderful company! You can see more about it here.
