Helicopter Prayers and Hugs and Smiles

On Sunday my husband and I get to dedicate one of our favourite little people at Church.  We’ve been blessed to journey with this couple from singlehood, to doing their wedding ceremony and now to help them dedicate their little son to the Lord.  What a privilege it is to walk with people you love through many significant phases of life.  

So, to honour this special occasion I put together a sweet little card with The Cat’s Pajamas new set Sending You.  I hadn’t been able to work with this fun helicopter yet, and it’s perfect for a little boy design.  

Stamped on XPress It Blending cardstock, coloured with Copics and then all gussied up with these cute papers from Echo Park, Little Man.  There are times when it’s just FUN to play with patterned paper and as you can see I had a lot of layers to play with.  :)

I used some fun TCP CutUps dies including Framed Up Two and the Clouds Border Die.  

Here’s the inside of the design.  I think it’s perfect as a card to celebrate a Baby Dedication.  We’re standing with them as they raise their son with our prayers, hugs and smiles.  

Enjoy today friends!  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Christine, what a blessing this coming Sunday, and may God continue to bless both this couple and their dear son. And what an adorable card! You could never find a more perfect DP than this one for the adorable image with this copter rabbit -- hehe! Your coloring is amazing, and what great fussy cutting. I totally love it and love the precious inside sentiment! Just sweetness. Enjoy Sunday! Hugs, sweet friend!
