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!

Violet Friendship Rose

Happy Wednesday!

I'm back with another card using the Classic Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations! This is a fairly simple one using one of the card fronts from the Classic Rose Paper Collection, a pretty friendship sentiment stamped directly on it and an added flower to match.

Here's a little close up of the flower.

For the flower I used the Classic Rose Cling and matching Classic Rose Die. They were colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Emma Lou has a great video tutorial on how to shape roses using this collection you can find here.

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 challenge:
