God Keeps His Promises

Good morning girls! It's finally Friday and even though I no longer work outside the home, it's still a day to look forward to!

I am thrilled to get to share with you my first Friday creation for Sugar Creek Hollow with you! Even though the Grand Opening isn't until March 1st, you can pre-shop now!

Over the past few weeks, I keep getting news that is discouraging or upsetting to me. Not major things - just little things really but the other day I saw this little stamp: God Keeps His Promises. (on clearance for 97 cents no less) and it just felt like a warm hug from God himself. A little reminder in the world that He is faithful, He has my back and that He Loves Me. A prefect pairing with this flourish heart from Sugar Creek Hollow.

I saw a new challenge the other day: I Love Digis and they wanted to see pink for their first challenge. Not a problem, I happen to like pink!! And I also have been wanting to play along in the Midnight Madness challenge so I used their sketch for the layout. I paper pieced my heart with that adorable polka dot paper. I have just a little smidge of it left now.

I encourage you to take a visit over to the rest of the designers blogs. We all have creations to share today. They are such a talented, loving group of women. I have been so blessed to have been asked to be part of the team.
