Blingy Baptism

Quick post for tonight...not feeling the greatest, so I need to go to bed early. You know Moms are not allowed to get sick! I wanted to participate in the latest Mojo Monday contest (Mojo68) and since I needed a couple of baptism cards, I decided to try that. I lent out my one and only cross stamp, so I was a little stuck. But then I remembered I had a bunch of rhinestones left over from the Baby Francesca box and card, so I decided to make them into a cross. I added some elements from the Priceless set to highlight the rhinestone cross. Can't really think of too many of the details right now, but overall I liked how the card turned out.

And since I needed another baptism card, but for a friend of ours that is an adult (I am always impressed by those that find religion later in life), I tried the same thing with a few changes. Obviously the colors were changed (this is SCS Color Challenge 200) and since my blue rhinestones were smaller and again it was for a man, I changed some of the elements that I thought were girly. I honestly am not sure which one I like better now.

Anyway, sorry for the lack of details or really anything interesting to say...just need some sleep now. Oh, if you can believe it, I have NOT heard from Marsha Sutton of Stafford, unless I hear from her tonight, I will be selecting yet ANOTHER winner of my Blog Candy for a Cause II tomorrow! Seriously, talk about a lackluster end to an awesome blog candy...whoever wins in the end, better hoop and holler some to make up for the lack of excitement! Stay tuned!

I never would have thought of that design for a Baptism. I love it. It is neat when an adult commits to be Baptized and goes through all the classes.

I hope you are able to get rest and quickly recover.

Your cards are so pretty!!!
If nobody claims the prize, please pick me, I would love to have 5% of the goodies, LOL.

God bless you

What beautiful cards! I've been following your blog to keep up with baby Francesca...she's still in my prayers.
A crying shame no one has claimed their prize. You can bet I would! :)

Your cards are beautiful. Hope you are feeling better after you get much needed rest (I'm sure). I can't believe that the blog candy hasn't been claimed.
