It's a Busy Time of Year!!!!!!

Hello! Long time no blog! Sorry for my absence, but I celebrated my birthday right after Easter, and it's been crazy busy in my house! Must apologize also for not getting around to posting my Easter projects, gifts, crafts and cards. BUT, I do have a couple of cards for you today!! (Patting myself on the back for getting these up on my blog in all the craziness going on!)

I married into quite the big family, and we have just kept growning over the years. Anyhow springtime at our house means religious events, communions, confirmations and graduations. We have 3 communions coming up in the next couple weeks, so I thought I would share my cards with you.

I made a male version and a female version of the first card, and the last card is for my youngest daughter's best friend who is celebrating her first communion on the same day as my daughter - they are so excited!!!

I used my Cricut to cut out the cross on all the cards, using the Wedding Solutions cartridge. The stamped sentiment is from Stampin Up! (of course!) as is the top note die cut (the shaped background). Let me know what you think, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!

Take care till next time!
