Two Very Special Cards

Good Morning...I hope you are having a great week. My week continues to be busy but I wanted to stop long enough to share a couple of very special cards with you. The twins will be baptised next week and wanted to do something a little different for them. This card used the Spellbinders Label 7 dies and the help of a fellow blogger, Valita. I had seen this type of Easel card done on her blog a while back and knew when the time came I was going to use for this special occasion. When you get a chance, check out her blog, she is so creative and can turn a punch or die cut into something amazing! I found this poem on the Internet and thought it was perfect. I changed the words from 'this tiny baby" to "these tiny babies" and will post in here for those of you that may want to copy it---

Lord  Bless These Tiny Babies,
Who Are Brought To You Today,
And Teach These Precious  Little Feet,
To Follow In Your Way.

Lord  Bless The Babies’Parents Too,
And With YourLoving Care,
Grant Them All The Happiness
A Family  Can Share.

This next card is for a very special friend that has found herself working outside the home and having a tough time juggling her time. I wanted her to know that not only is she in my mind but in my heart and I think about her often--- 
That's it for today...If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me.Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day, I hope to see you again soon! If I have inspired you with todays posting, I'd love to hear from you so please take a moment to leave a comment and if you aren't already, I'd love to have you as a follower.

Both of these cards are wonderful - love the shape of that easel card. You chose such pretty papers and embellishments and won't the recipients LOVE them!

Kelly, These are both SPECTACULAR. Dare I say your most amazing work yet? The card for the boys is a precious keepsake like all the others you've made but this one is so, so special. It reminds me of a decoupage someone made for my sister early on. The second card is great too. They're both a little step away from your usual and they both are perfect.

I came upon your blog a couple of days ago and have already purchased the nestabilities to try to make a book easel card. Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful verse. I will have to make a card for a baby boy soon, so this was perfect timing!
