Communion card

Simon's best friend Niamh celebrated her 1st Communion Day last weekend.  The service was beautiful as was Niamh in her white dress.  We had a lovely party after the ceremony and did not let the rain dampen our spirits.  It was quite funny when Niamh greeted us back at her house - she was still wearing her beautiful white dress, but the ballet slippers had been replaced with much more sensible boots.

This was the card I made for her.  The Celtic Cross was from Waltzing Mouse's Celtic Heritage set, as was the chalice on the envelope.  The sentiment was from Waltzing Mouse's Light of the World set - it's actually 2 stamps so the positioning is very flexible.  Naturally I set it all off with a background stamped with the WMS Cabin Plaid Backgrounder.  

The die cut alphabet I used to spell Niamh's name on the envelope was from WPLUS9.  I discovered this site while visiting other blogs and decided to try ordering directly from the States.  They have a fab collection of clear stamps and matching dies - well worth a look.


  1. Looking lovely! Beautiful celtic cross!

  2. Gorgeous, love the cross it's beautiful. What a pretty colour too.

  3. Just stunning Kate - so perfect for a First communion card and I love how you've used the sentiment from the other's perfect!


I'd love to hear from you !!!
