Ruby’s Baptism- Keepsake Cards and Stationery

Ruby’s Baptism,…continued…

So, sometimes I do crazy, ridiculous things NO OTHER person would even consider doing. Like, for example, creating these cards the morning of Ruby’s Baptism…like an hour before we’re supposed to leave. No kidding. I thought of doing them that morning while laying in bed, to be completely honest.

I don’t know why I choose to set myself up for complete craziness. There are just so many things I want to do and figure, I’m not gonna let time stop me. Life is crazy…there’s always going to be a million things on my plate and I guess it all comes back to priorities.

And, one of my priorities is making cute things for my daughter (Is there anything wrong with that? Ha!) Cute, but also precious. Ruby will look at this years down the line, maybe when she’s my age, and appreciate this (hopefully, that is!).

Some things are just important to me and even if it’s unrealistic, I’ll make time to have it done. And, I did it,…even if it meant sticking the photo on the card  right before the party started!

You see, a good friend, who is also a VERY talented photographer had taken family photos of James, me, and Ruby. We had just gotten back the pictures and I had to show them off….right? Who wouldn’t! They are gorgeous! I never got to show these off on my blog,..but here’s a few.

this one is just so cute of her….

Amazing, right?  Check her out!

And the photo I used for her keepsake card…

I, literally, just made up the word “keepsake card”. I sound so confident, like I really know what I’m talking about. I wasn’t really sure what to call this photo card, but really, it was something for others to “keep” and enjoy. So, there you have it, keep.sake.card.

I was home over the winter and found this card, which my dad had saved, in his Bible. I didn’t tell him, but it totally brought tears to my eyes. My sweet Pops. I love him!

And to go with whole ensemble, I made these matching notecards to write thank you’s on. Very sweet and very special.

Something we’ve been able to put to use!

Love ’em!
