Card Ministry

Our church, St. John's United Methodist, sends birthday cards to seniors, as well as various thinking of you, sympathy etc. I started a Card Ministry where several ladies in our congregation make handmade cards for our Ministers and staff to send. It has been so well received and makes me very happy to be able to contribute using a hobby that I dearly love. There is also a group who makes Christening Blankets for our babies when they are baptized, who we made cards for too:)  We even made graduation cards for our seniors and some for those graduating at the Methodist Children's Home.
Some ladies gave  us some buttons that will be so lovely on these cards:)
Here are the cards we're making this month.

Thanks to Becky for this idea.
I kept looking at this and thought something was a bit off, so here's another take on it. I used Crumb Cake card stock on this one, and I think the warmer tone looks better:-)
