On Saturday it will be two years since Ottawa was blessed to witness the ordination of our newest Bishop (an Auxiliary Bishop, to be precise). Surprisingly, he is quite a young man (as Bishops go). Unsurprisingly, he is kind and gentle, with a gracious and loving heart. He serves us well as our shepherd.
And would you believe that his name is Christian!?!
Honestly my friends! With a given name like that, how could you not expect him to be wonderful?
In any event, I wanted to make a card to mark the occasion for him, so here it is. The image of the cross comes from the stamp set, Blessed By God, and is perfect for the occasion. The sentiment comes from a retired set (Graceful Words) that I will never, ever part with!
The card is quite simple in design. I used the emboss resist technique (just stamp and heat emboss the images, then sponge to create a shadow-effect) to create a 'simple' card that contains a whole lot of love and appreciation. It is understated and refined. Just like the man himself.
It'll do quite nicely.
Hope everyone is looking forward to a wonderful weekend. And I hope Bishop Christian enjoys his Anniversary - and knows just how very much we appreciate his service.
God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
