Yesterday I decided it was time to get the 2008 First Holy Communion samples underway. This is the 4th year I've made personalised cards mainly through school & church.
My inspiration for one of the cards for this year was the Golden Wedding Anniversary card I posted on Wednesday.
I've kept the basic card the same, changing the colours & adding a cross embellishment.
My intention was just to change the pink to blue for the boys but after talking to my friend who has 3 boys she thought it would still be too girly . . . . . . . . so . . . . . . . . I'm going to change the birds & swirls to swiss dots but I'm stuck for what to replace the pink ribbon with. Any ideas . . . . . . all will be very gratefully received!!!
I also spent alot of time yesterday therapeutically winding my ribbon prize on to dolly pegs. This was the delicious prize from Michelle at Poppicrafts. If you haven't paid a visit to her shop yet, you should. She has some fab 'bits & pieces', some I haven't seen anywhere else. I can definately say the ribbon is high quality & the designs on the cross grain are gorgeous.
