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!

Festive Holly Christmas

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!  This week I have another Christmas card using the new Festive Holly Collection of stamps, dies and designer papers.

I used one of the card panels for the background of the card die cutting the center with a circle die.  I then added white behind the opening with a sentiment stamped on it.

The holly images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps, cut with the matching dies and then popped onto the card around the opening.  Fairly simple card to make, but comes out pretty and festive.

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:
