Yesterday afternoon was our church's Blessing of the Animals at the Manger service. I shared with you information about this in earlier posts and showed you the Top Note die animals I made for the bulletin board announcing the event. Well, it was Gabby's turn to go to church yesterday and be blessed. Here are some pictures from the event:
Here are two of the girls from our church who were an angel and Mary. They have beautiful voices and did a great job singing carols during the event.
OK, for your being so nice to view those pictures, I'll share more quilting cards. I have had fun making these cards and find them very versatile.
This one uses the 1-1/4" punch and you punch two each of three patterns. I glued down the squares to vanilla cardstock and ran the whole thing through my Square Lattice embossing folder.
This (above) is a card for any occasion. I decided it would be a nice card for a masculine birthday, so I made this one. Same layout but using more masculine-colored papers. I sent it to my BIL Billy for his birthday. I hope he liked it!
Then, I made this one for a Christmas card--in fact, I made several of these.
I've decided I LOVE this layout and know I'll be making many more cards using it.
Thanks for stopping by today---and for being so patient in my absence. It's a busy time of year and I was away longer than anticipated!
Come back soon!
