More 1st Communion Cards



We have 5 grandchildren receiving their First Holy Communion and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil Mass next week. Another one is being baptized. For those of you who follow my blog these are the children that our oldest son and his wife adopted. We are lucky grandparents and I am a busy card maker! I am trying to make them all different. The first 2 cards (for the boys) was my previous blog post. These are for the three middle girls (9, 8, 7). Sunday morning I will post the last one on my Stampin Sisters in Christ post. 


I really like the way these turned out. There is nothing better than making a card for specific people (kids) who are very close to my heart.

Thank you for looking and for your comments.

Brautiful confirmations cards, I love the soft gently colouring of the WOJ 'Confirmand Melissa', your embossing is fabulous and they each have such pretty details.

So glad you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge,
