my card-making marathon!

Each year at Easter, the Catholic Church welcomes new members who have been part of the RCIA program over the previous several months. As part of this celebration, our church asks each organization/group within the church to provide a card, signed by the group's members, for each person who is joining the church. This year there are 7 people receiving one or more of the sacraments of initiation (baptism, first holy communion, and confirmation) at the Easter Vigil. Since our Cub Scout Pack is one of the groups asked to provide cards, I got the bright idea to make the cards myself, LOL!

Once I had settled on the basic design, I pulled a variety of papers from my stash so that each card would be unique. I didn't expect it to take as long as it did to put these together, but I'm really happy with how they turned out. I used my Pazzles to cut the word "Christ" for the sentiment, and did the rest of the wording on the computer. The inside of each card says "Sharing with you the joy of new life in Christ! Congratulations from Cub Scout Pack 40".
