First Communion


Today is my nephew's First Communion. He is the younger brother of my niece, who only last month had her Confirmation. My sister has been very busy planning these events and will be relieved, I'm sure, when we all go home tonight! lol!

I don't often have reason to make a Yo-yo Yellow card, but John Michael loves yellow, so I went bright!

I used my Silhouette Portrait to make the cross. I lined up all the circles, then deleted the centre one and replaced it with a heart. I added his initials and today's date to personalize. Can you believe the fine-ness of these cuts?

  5. This will be such a beautiful remembrance. The cuts are great. I wish I had had a better first experience with my Portrait. I need to get back with it and work out the "bugs".

  13. So cool! At first I thought you had punched/die cut all of that. That would have sent you into the Goddess of Crafting stratosphere! LOL!
