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!

Angel Tree

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for the new release for August!  This month we have another Christmas Collection called the Winter's Eve Collection.

Here is my first card for this new collection!

I love the little angel and tree scene.  I colored it with pencils and mineral spirits and popped in inside the window cut with the window die.  I added a window over it also colored with pencils and cut with it's matching die.  The beautiful medallions around the window are from the Window Box Elements Die set. I cut the larger one and added it on each side of the window.  You can see complete instructions for this at the end of my post if you would like them.

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:

  1. This is gorgeous. I love the pink with the pop of blue at the bottom. It just draws you into the scene!

  2. I am smitten by your creation. Love the die-cut window and your lay-out. So sorry for the delayed comment, just been super busy. Thank you so much for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you some encouragement from God's Word in Ephesians 2:10 which says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Be blessed!
