First Communion


Yet another First Communion, this time I used my lovely WOJ communicant stamp, cut her out with two nestabilities, punched a nice border, added some embossing and a ribbon and cross charm. I stitched the background paper to the card, punched white flowers with my ms flower punch and added some pearl centres and punched leaves. The sentiment is a stamp from stamping all day which I embossed. The frame around her looks black but it is actually gold mirri board. I am entering this into these challenges.
1. Totally Gorjuss - charmed
2. Fab'n'funky - woj stamp which usually neglected till this time of the year
3. Creatalicious Challenge - wings and flowers
4. Sweet Stampin Challenge - In stitches
5. Allsorts - stitching
6. magical Crafts - something for girls
7. The Crafty pad - stitching
8. Critter Challenge - use 10 elements (stitching, flowers, leaves, pearls, ribbon, charm, image, punched border, glitter, embossing)

Hi Pinky

This is just beautiful, It has a real feel of serenity about it.

I keep meanting to tell you I saw three of your Countrymen on TV the other evening, they had voices like angels. No idea how I can to see them as it was on QVC and I rarely turn that on.

Anyway, they were wonderful and I really got goose pimples when they sang You'll Never Walk Alone - as a Reds supporter I was almost in tears.

Thanks for joining in at Allsorts this week.

Hi Pinky I have been doing the rounds for the last few hours and I have finally gotten to you phew lol. I must admit I do love these communion cards you have been showing this one is as beautiful I love that little charm it is all just perfect. By the way in answer to your question about the highlight pen I use it is an Inkssentials opaque white which I got from Joanna Sheen but I also got one from Sir Stampalot with the Copics starter kit great buy.
