First Communion!

Happy Sunday evening everyone! I know that it's very late for Blogger's Challenge, but I think that I have a pretty good reason. My little one made his First Communion today. I've been busy trying to get everything prepared for guests at the house and all of the hullabaloo that goes along with that. That has left me little time for stamping and little time for catching up with all of my friends on the computer.

It was a beautiful day here and all of the children were just wonderful! They're such a blessing! All of the dishes are done and everything is cleaned up and put away, so I thought that I'd share the card that I created for my little guy. I'm so glad that I was able to still participate in this week's Blogger's Challenge even though I'm a little late. I used the praying hands stamp that I picked up at the Dollar Tree a couple of years back and I made the sentiment on the computer. I stamped the main image twice and cut one of them out for some extra dimension. The entire image is die cut with my Nesties (Labels One). Our challenge this week is embossing, so I used my Textile Texture embossing folder and my 'Bug to add some subtle elegance to the card. (After all, it is for a boy...lol!) Then it needed something, so I went and added the ribbon. (Now, it's not so boyish...lol!) He loved the card anyway! I'm a very lucky Mommy! {wink}

For more embossing ideas, just click here and you can see what the other Ladies in the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with. Have a wonderful start to the work week! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D

This is very pretty and I think it looks great even with the ribbon on, still masculine in my eyes :-)
