Hello Blog Readers and Happy New Year!!  IMG_8770Where have I been?!  Yikes…time flies during the holidays!  Sadly I haven’t done a lot of stamping.  We have just been so busy with family.  Sometimes you just have to prioritize.  🙂

So I have to take a minute to be a proud Aunt!  My beautiful niece McKenna was baptized on Sunday! This is a picture of us after her ceremony.  She slept through the whole thing and woke up afterwards for the party.  Ah…to be a baby!  I have three little boys and just have to say that it is so much fun to have a little girl in the family!  I know that I just can’t help myself and have to practice a lot of restraint when I see cute little girly things in the store.  It’s so different looking a little dresses and outfits for girls.

I needed a special card for her baptism and I wanted it to be simple, yet elegant.

IMG_8719I pulled out my go-to stamp set for these types of occasions called Crosses of Hope.  I wanted a mostly white card so I left the base white.  I did a little bit of embossing on the bottom with a new tool that is coming out in the Spring Mini Catalog that I know you are going to LOVE.  It’s an embossing plate for the Simply Scored Tool.  I love the look of it and it sort of reminds me of dry embossing.  The cross on the card is stamped in Regal Rose and the “God bless you” is stamped in Early Espresso.  I added a cute little flower on the bottom with a pearl and finished the card off with some Whisper White ribbon.

It was a beautiful day for McKenna and I was so blessed to be a part of it!

Be Creative, Kristin
