Baby Boy Baptism

     Unfortunately, I have had one of those days!  I took my son to eye therapy this morning and on the way home it was snowing (wasn't suppose to until this afternoon) and I had difficulty getting stopped at a stoplight. I think the van died or the brakes stopped working appropriately and i had to stop with the emergency brake. I was finally able to get it started and going again to drop my son off at school.  After that i needed a couple of things from Walmart so i decided to take a chance and go.  All was fine while shopping to go out to a flat tire. I drove the vehicle around to tire lube part and had them to look at it. After sitting there for an hour  "THEY COULDN'T FIND ANY REASON FOR IT TO GO FLAT!" They didn't charge me, but now i'm on eggshells wondering why the tire went flat. Onto a brighter note.

     We have a Baptism this week at Peace Lutheran and i wanted to make a special card for this baby for his special day. This is What i came up with.  The image is a digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Baby Boy Baptism", i believe. The faux stitching was done with a stamp and white embossing powder to make it stand out more.I used a Spellbinders die frame to mount him on. I found some Ruffled ribbon in my stash, added corners using a Cuttlebug die and inked them up with my Faded jeans distress ink.  I used a Cross stamp and cut it out to add to it and used Stampin'up tags to mount the sentiment on.  I found the sentiment somewhere online.Sweet and Simple yet for a good purpose.
