Baptism Gifts

Hey y'all!  Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I had planned to have  a Cinco de Mayo card to share with you, but didn't have time to put it together.  I'll be posting it some time; it will just be late. =D

Bear's Baptism is coming up in the middle of May, so I've been wanting to make the gifts for the Godparents.  One of them had taken a picture of Bear when he was two months, and it was just so cute I had to make a couple of canvases for the gifts.



And here's a close up of the wording:


One is a couple and the other is a very close friend, so the alternate wording says "Godparent".  I had a lot of fun making these canvases today.  I painted the outside with a Ranger dobber in Pool. Turns out I've had it so long the sponge had dried up, so I had to soak it in some water before it would work. The paper is from American Crafts, and the buttons were a variety pack that I bought at JoAnn Crafts.  I've never been easy with buttons, so I was very excited with how these came out.

Well, thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you soon.  Until then, stay crafty, my friends!

Hello girlfriend!! OMG what a cutie Bear is!!!!! Im so smitten w/your little guy & his big smile....his God-parents are going to treasure these canvas- what great gift ideas!!!! I've been missing myself lately- where does the time go?!! We had a little health scare w/Elvis & thatht put me behind the eightball on everything, actually I was so depressed by the whole situation I didn't really want to do anything....thank goodness things see to be going in the right direction w/Elvis now : ) Him & Wilson are still working things out, but it's all good!!! I'm soooo ready for warm summer weather! I bet you are too....I can just see you taking Bear for long summer walks : ) Give that little guys some cuddles from me- have a great rest of the week!!!
