Confirmation 2016

Our church had six Confirmands this year and I was asked to make cards for them.  This is what I came up with. I really like the simplicity of this card.  The leaves are made from vellum so they sort of just float on the card.  They are not glued down except under the cross.  I hope this gives you some ideas for cards of your own!

We had a horrible storm last night.  I just finished planting all of my bedding plants etc and we got hail and wind.  I think my plants are toast.  Lots of hail and wind!  It is still raining so have not been out to check on things, but it looks like a big mess outside.  It hailed so hard that my alarms went off.  And it hailed for a long time!

Also I picked up a book from the library yesterday that I had had on reserve.  It is Lisa Scottoline's newest called Most Wanted.  It gets you from page 1.  Hard to put down.  If you have read it, let me know what you thought. 

Until next time, happy trails to you...
