Holy Communion Cards and Potato Casserole

Hi, guys!  Hope you are having a great weekend.  I mentioned the other day that this weekend we would be celebrating my niece's First Holy Communion.  I thought I would share the card I made for her.



Stamps: Catholic Rubber Stamps




I made a few other cards for family and friends to give as well.






Stamps: Delta, Paper Angel







My sister made these adorable nugget favors.  She uses computer software to make these.  Everyone loved them.




When we have family functions I am asked to make potato casserole.  It is a great recipe.  If you travel the highways of the U.S. you probably have come across Cracker Barrel restaurants.  The recipe I use is one similar to the one that they make.  My young nephew emailed me to remind me to bring one to the Communion lunch. 




It is delicious and I recommend you give it a try sometime if you need to take a dish to someone.  I had to leave the party with my mom and a friend to attend my husband's show.  My sister was supposed to save some for us for when we returned and we came back to an empty dish!  I think that speaks well for this recipe.


Have a great night!   I will be back tomorrow with the final Mother's Day cards I made.

Love the card! It's so nice to give handmade gifts, I hope it was appreciated. My oldest niece had her first communion this weekend as well. I knit her veil for the occasion.

Thanks for the recipe too. I love Cracker Barrel Hashbrown casserole!

Hi winnie thankyou for the nice comment you left about my tag. You've made a lovely series of cards for your niece . I was fascinated by your potato casserole we don't have the Cracker Barrel chain here in the Uk I shall Certainly give the recipe a try as i think we can get frozen hash browns in the supermarket ,I'm not sure what Colby cheese is though I'll have to do a bit of research . Have fun toni x

These are fabulous 1st Holy Communion cards - the stamps sets are so limited for this occasion. You really did an amazing job and I'm sure everyone will be so pleased with them.
