return of the pears.

"Guess how much we love you?  Just a hare above the rest."
xoxo Tia Kelly and Wujek Alex

Our new niece Julia was christened last Sunday in a small family ceremony.  She looked so beautiful in her little white dress (that was made from her Grandma's wedding dress.  So sweet!)  We celebrated with a small lunch afterwards at my sister-in-law's family's house.

Alex and I were undecided on what to gift to her, so we decided to go with the book "Guess how much I love you?" which we have gifted to friends in the past.  The characters are bunnies (so naturally, it's our FAV) and it's really really sweet.  I hope to read this to our future children one day.  I also found a prayer card with her name on it at the local religious shop.

In the front cover of the book, we wrote the little message above (Tia is "aunt" in Spanish and Wujek is "uncle" in Polish.  Gotta include all the cultures in there!).

My craft stash doesn't contain any religious-based products, and since it was National Scrapbook Day (NSD) last weekend when I was creating these cards, I decided to play along with a challenge from Gossamer Blue and use three different stamps on a project.  (Such fun hanging out in their Facebook group and playing along with challenges and chatting with other crafters!)

I used to really love these pear stamps and use them all the time when I purchased them a bunch of years ago to make a wedding album.  (It's funny how we forget about products we own when new things come out, isn't it?)  They're so versatile and obviously look good in lots of different colors!  Definitely need to use them more!


PS: If you have any questions regarding any of the products used, please leave them in the comments and I will give you the info if I know it.  Thanks!!
