Through Rain or Shine...

Hey, hey!

It's a UNITY Saturday today....WOO HOO!   Today my friends we are HOPPIN' with the WONDERFUL Unity DT girls for the premiere of the January STAMPIN' STORE KIT {Livin and Lovin Life!}

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kit!   I was so excited to work with it-only prob was what to start with first!  Well, seeing as I just celebrated my 10th Anniversary this week, the adorable sentiment "Through RAIN or SHINE you'll ALWAYS be Mine" was the perfect way to end the week!


Then this ADORABLE image that I used totally reminded me of the song "RED UMBRELLA" by Faith Hill.  Do you guys know it?  It's a great, upbeat love song about having a safe place, a shelter, and finding that rainbow through love so yeah...works for me!
Sometimes life can get a little dark






I'm sure I've got bruises on my heart
Here come the black clouds full of pain
Yeah, you can break away without the chains


Your love is like a red umbrella
Walk the streets like Cinderella
Everyone can see it on my face


So let it rain
It's pourin' all around
Let it fall
It ain't gonna drown me
After all
I'm gonna be okay
So let it rain


You can wear your sorrow like an old raincoat
You can save your tears in a bottle made of gold
But the glitter on the sidewalk always shines
Yeah, even God needs to cry sometimes


Your love is like a red umbrella
Always there to make me better
When my broken dreams
Are fallin' from the sky



So let it rain






It's pourin' all around
Let it fall
It ain't gonna drown me
After all
I'm gonna be okay
So let it rain


Let it wash my tears away
Tomorrow's another day
Yeah
Thanks for hanging out with me while I sang you my little Faith song :) LOL.    I am LOVING the designs by the amazing UNITY DT girls made with this kit...make sure you check them OUT:
