Rejoice In Everything You Do!

Hi, Everyone!
Today I would like to share some exciting news. I was invited by Laura Boetto and Chris Callebs from Paper and Pixels Magazine of Crafts Creating From The Heart  to do a card tutorial for there amazing online magazine. When I first received the invite I was thinking and thinking. I don't know if I can do it. It amazes me that other people see things in you that you don't see in yourself. I am truly thankful, grateful, and blessed. I am honored. For today's card for the publication is an image I used called Morning Glory by Crafts and Me. I was inspired by my scrapbook sister Ann she used an image from this company as well. Thanks Ann.
 This image has alot of  spiritual  meaning to me! This image reminds me of several scriptures. Philippians 4:4, Psalms 33-1,Psalms 18-24 (Thanks Candy for helping me with the scriptures I just could not remember the names bibles)Rejoice in everything you do! Whatever it looks like you Must Rejoice.  When you Rejoice it takes away the anxiety and sets you in a better place. I want to thank Laura and Chris again for inviting me.

Tip- When picking out your image always look for dp that has a little bit of detail to match the image.  If this can’t be done? Look for a die that will blend with the dp/image. When I design a  card. I first pick out the image then dp build up my card / put it together then color my image last.
