Tucker's First Communion

My husband and I are godparents to our nephew, Tucker. Tucker is as cute as can be and such a sweet boy.


Tucker's First Communion was last weekend so we headed back to Matt's hometown for the celebration. The mass was for just the First Communicants and their families and wasn't until 1:00, which totally threw off our whole family's internal clocks on what time it was. We typically go to the earliest mass possible so this was way different for us.

The week got away from me so Tucker just got cash in his card. But, he seemed excited about that because he had it all planned out what game he was going to buy with all his gift money. LOL

Okay, onto the card...


Thanks again to Kimberly for letting me borrow some of her Spellbinders dies. I don't know if I would have chosen this Labels Thirteen just by seeing it in the store but once I used it I can see how versatile this label is. It's great. Sorry, Kimberly you might not be seeing this one again. Just kidding. :)

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps
Ink: Van Dyke Brown (Nik Bantok), Spring Moss (PTI)
Paper: Rustic White and Spring Moss (PTI)
Other: Labels 13 (Spellbinders), Ripe Avocado ribbon (PTI), argyle embossing plate (SU!)

Catch you all later!

Your son is a doll! I'm sure he wouldn't want to be called a doll though. I had the biggest crush on a red haired, freckled boy in elementary school. Your card is perfect for the occasion and lovely!

Lovely seeing pics of your family! This is such a beautiful card - delicate and sensitive to the occasion without being frilly or girly! I love the dry embossing and the subdued image on the front - and the label with the sentiment on the inside. This is really beautiful!
