Baptism Card

Our little Leah will be baptized this coming Sunday so I had to make up a card for the occasion. Since I am getting around in a wheelchair I was not able to get to a lot of my crafting supplies so I had to rely mainly on digital and computer generation for this card. So it is not exactly what I had in mind but it will work and I hope as she gets older she will like the card I made for her.



The cross was a digital image a friend sent me so I used that for the card. And the praying child is a digital I got years ago from I Brake for Stamps. The verse I computer generated and made it personalized for her. I colored the images in with my Bic Mark It pens. The little flower stickers were from Jolees By You and the background digital paper is from Artsystamper Digitals. Inside the card I added this verse: I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1.

Well we are still working with garden goodies. I took care of green beans yesterday as far as taking the ends off and cutting into pieces but did not freeze them yet. But we did freeze more beets so I think the rest of the beets I will try to find someone who will want them. We have plenty in the freezer now. We also got some huge heads of cabbage and since we have plenty of them I will be taking one head of cabbage, some beans and some potatoes to my daughter for her family. One of my daughters got some when she visited a few days ago. And there will be more coming from the garden so since it is harder for me to work with garden things I will gift some to others. But my sweet hubby is helping with the freezing of the veggies. So I am truly blessed. I gave him the day off so he could go fishing. I hope he has a good catch.

I am going to perhaps work on more Christmas cards. I think I am in the 70's now. I did quite a few last week. And mainly am using digital images and card kits for most of them. So that is very convenient. We might have to remodel and move some things so I can get to my other supplies easier. 

Well take care and have a good rest of the week.

God bless, Verna

What a sweeet card and I'm sure Leah will treasure as something her grandma made. What a garden you must have - WOW. You'll eat well all winter. Your hubby is a jewel to help and I'm sure he enjoyed his fishing trip.

Your beautiful Leah will surely treasure this card in years down the road knowing you made it especially for her. I love the sentiments both outside and inside. I hope that muscle in your leg is improving and you can soon get out of the wheelchair, but I love your spirit - you push on in spite of the bumps in the road! I hope you're back on your feet in no time! Hugs
