Baptism Boy!

Hello, and welcome!

It's currently 7.20pm on Sunday night, and I am jiggered!  Isn't Sunday supposed to be a day of rest?  Nope, not today, at least, lol.

Our Sacrament meeting seemed to be an extra special one, today........all the speakers were very focused on the Saviour's Atonement, when He freely offered His life in order to redeem every one of us.......always blows me away!
At the end of the meeting, we sang one of my favourite hymns, "I Believe in Christ", which was written by an Apostle, Bruce R. McConkie, and I was moved to tears by the words.......a very strong testimony of the Saviour's love for each of us.

Then, it was time for me to go be Nursery Leader for two hours, which I always enjoy......but, boy did it wear me out!
All the tinies seemed to be especially fractious........not that I really mind wearing chewed apple and snot on my best blouse, :D!

I mentioned a baptism card I made for a little friend....remember?.....well, that little friend is called Connor, and he is a real sweetheart.......he's big for his age, and husky, and has the cheekiest grin, and today was his baptism day....yaaaaay!!

I had to try to keep his card as plain and un-girly as I could, which I thought would be easy.....not!.......

I really wanted to put some blue baker's twine in those buttons, but Connor would think it was I didn't.  lol....

Don't you think Nikki did a fantastic job with this digi stamp?  I absolutely love it, and am so grateful to her.......go MelonHeadz!!
You can see that I tried to keep the colours choices pretty neutral, too........honestly! pickie boys!......girlie's are much easier to create for :).......

.......and the sentiment that Nikki made to go along with the image, is just perfect.........but those buttons do look a bit bare!

Connor really liked his card, so it couldn't be too bad, I suppose :D.

After the baptism, it was home to let out the dog.....she's gettin' on in years, and can't hold her bladder as long as she used to, poor thing......then, over to Olivia's house for birthday cake and presents!
Almost all my kids and grandkids were there, as well as the other set of grandparents, and aunts and uncles, so it was a very noisy affair......just as it always is when we all get together.....VERY noisy!
But, the little princess seemed to have a good time, and she actually smiled when she opened the card I made for her.....wooohooo.....result!!

Hope to see you tomorrow.....

  2. AM, stunning card! I really like the colour combo on this one and I am always amazed at how you get the 'male' cards just right! Thinking a few lessons for me are in order :)

  3. This is a great boy card for Anne-Marie, I love the colours and image you have used.

  4. Fab card! It's always so difficult to do a card for a male. I was determined to add a bit of bling to my stepson's birthday card last year so I improvised and used tin foil hehe Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley. Hugs Sarah x

  5. Great card, I love the die cuts & the buttons you added, perfect baptism card! Thanks for playing along with us at Paper Sundaes :)
