The Lord's Unfailing Love...

Welcome!  
I hope wherever you are in the world life is good for you today!

I'm back this week with another Flowering Dogwood Collection project for Heartfelt Creations!
It's another wall hanging!
I saw this wooden cross for altering while shopping in Hobby Lobby during my little adventure to CHA and immediately thought of the Flowering Dogwood Collection!

Would you like to see how it turned out?

Well let's keep you waiting no longer...


I had not had a chance to use any of the faith based stamps released on Black Friday yet, so I thought one of them would surely be perfect to add a sentiment on this cross!  I really like how the sentiment turned out there in the center.  I've stamped it, fussy cut around it and then popped it up off the wall hanging with pop dots!

I've kept this creation more monochromatic keeping it with the greens and blues. 
Unfortunately we're in a stretch of cloud cover again and the photo really doesn't show off the floral colors clearly. 

I've included all of the instructions to recreate this wall hanging at the end of my blog post. 
It really wasn't a hard or labor intensive project at all!

I do hope you stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog as well to take in the amazing creations the rest of the design team have created!

Until next time...
