Last Minute

I'm jumping in quickly this morning to play along at CASology. Last minute. Made a very quick and easy card for a confirmation. I never seem to have them on hand, so thought I'd get one done, especially with the Cue Card that's up. This was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this:

 

More precious than gold, silver, or all the diamonds on earth. This is my precious...


I am a Christian. Strong faith. Love my Savior. Truly blessed. And very, very thankful. That is my precious. 

All cardstock is from Michaels. I used an AE die for the main panel, and stamped an AE burst in soft yellow. The cross is from a package of Sticko's that I picked up to use on the Confirmation pages for my son's scrapbook. Yep, still working on it...got 4 pages done yesterday. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo stamped in ME Smoke ink. And that's it. Lots and lots of white space.  Now I have to get a move on. I'll be hauling groceries from the block that intersects with my street...sewer construction STILL going on in front of my house. Pretty sure it'll be done by Christmas....though at the rate they're going, I wouldn't bet on it, lol! Catch ya later and happy dances everyone.
