Happy 21st!

 

 

The fantastic Ann Prescott who makes beautiful quilts, cushions and other fabric crafts to sell at Ayrshire Arts & Crafts ordered 21st birthday cards for her children.  James is fanatical about a computer game (can’t remember which one as it’s too old for my kids to play!) and so I based the card on that.

Anne found it very easy to choose one for Rachel as she’d seen the patchwork cards on my my website! Very apt as that’s Ann’s expertise! I personalised it by putting ‘Rachel is 21’ round the happy birthday in the corner.

I had an email from Ann the other day saying they were delighted with the cards – especially James. Smile

Confirmation & Communion Congratulations

 

Along with the invites I was asked to make several special cards for the communicants.  One was for a lady being baptised and making her first communion.baptism confirmation

Then the girl’s design was this one:

And the boy’s:

The stamp set used was again the special blessings and also, for the top one I broke out my old Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps.  I should use these more often as they’re fun to use and very difficult to get poor results from!  In fact I have some more ladies birthday cards to make for the stall so I know exactly what I’m going to use!!

Back again?!

This time just to let you know that I’ll be having my stall at Eaglesham Fair on Saturday, along with Mairi from Oscar Cat Creations (I bet she has some daleks and ferrets just waiting for you to adopt!!) and Sheila from Treasure Trails.  Come along and have a great day full of fun at the fair!

Calm is returning!

The last few weeks have been hectic – it was the first holy communion and confirmation for the children in DD’s class so I’ve had invitations and cards to make for that, medals to make for the boys, prayer cards etc not to mention my DD having a special blessing – wearing the full communion outfit and then the parties afterwards!  It’s lovely that the non-catholic children are included in every part of the service, and they just receive a blessing rather than communion itself.

So today I have a couple of the invitations that were ordered to show you.  The wording was done on the pc, the cross is part of the Special Blessings set by Stampin Up.
