It's a girl! And another girl!

Ten years ago, I became an aunt when my nephew Timothy was born.  I was beyond thrilled to become Aunt Cindy.  Seven years ago, I married Steve and instantly gained two more nephews, Ian and Sean.  Nearly five years ago, I became a mom when Trevor was born.  On Sunday, I became a godmother to two girls, Kylinn and Ellia.  It is an honor and a privilege to be mom, aunt or godmother to these six. 

Here I am with my two new goddaughters, their mom Courteney, and my co-godparent Rachel:

I wanted to make special cards to mark the baptisms of Kylinn, Ellia and Courteney.  I hadn't done heat embossing in years, but I knew it would be perfect for mimicking the look of stained glass.  The stamp is by Stampin' Up.


I used Prismacolor Premier art markers to color in the stained glass.  I love the way the colors blend.

 

After I colored the windows, I cut them out.  I added embossed vellum to a card blank and adhered the window to it.  Finally, I tied on a piece of white nylon netting.  Here are the finished cards:


And a close-up of one:

I know I will love being a godmother as much as I love being an aunt and a mom.  Thank you to Courteney and Carl for honoring me with such an important role in their daughters' lives.  I feel truly blessed.
