Big News

Hello everyone.  I have been sitting on some news for a while now.  The lovely girls Michelle, Tracy, and Nina have asked me to be on their design team at Card Patterns.  I graciously accepted.  I love their sketches and have played as long as I have had my blog.  I get to create alongside of these girls plus 2 other new DT members.  The new DT will be revealed today at the Card Patterns blog.  Go check out the other new girls and leave some love for the fabulous girls who will be leaving.  I am so honored that they have chosen me out of all the wonderful talent out there.


On another note..my mother is having her surgery today on her  brain tumor.  Please send some love and prayers her way.  Send some for me too.  I am completely stressed out.  This is a very risky surgery.  I will be sitting very impatiently for hours during the surgery.
***Update***  My mom had her surgery and she is doing very well.  Her head hurts but that is a given when you have someone drill holes in your head.  I am so relieved.  I am tired...and going to bed.  This has been one long day for me.  I am grateful for all of you and the love and prayers you just keep sending our way.

Hugs to you all.  I can't begin to tell you how much each and every one of you mean to me.  It is you that keep me going during this stressful time.

Heather

I'm so sorry that I had the days mixed up on your mom's surgery--I am covering you all with prayer:) God is good!

Lord, I thank you that Heather is a believer that she loves you. I pray that you would cover her family today. I pray that you would give them peace--your peace (Phil. 4:7). Lord, I thank you that we can put our trust in you and know that you have a plan for us! Thank you for sending your son to die for us--and thank you for hearing our cries! Thank you that you are our strength and love!! I pray these things in Jesus' name- amen!

Huge congratulations on your new DT position. You'll be an asset to their team! My prayers are with your family. Savannah's beautiful prayer brought this scripture to mind. God's blessings!

Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
