Delightful Inspiration

This card was fun. It is from Designed to Delight and is part of Faith's progressive challenge oh her blog Delightful Inspiration. The beginning of the month, Faith gives away a free digi. Make a card with it, link it to her blog by the following Thursday and Friday morning she will email you a new digi. Make a card or project with it, link it to her blog by Thursday and... you get the picture that is why it is a progessive challenge. BUT you don't have to wait to the beginning of the month. Hope over to her store and buy the digi, make a project with it and post by Thursday and she will email a new digi free on Friday!! It is so fun to see what everyone has made!!
Ok now about the card itself. This image is called "Beautiful Blessings". The writing in the back is the Irish Blessing. My side of the family as well as my son's dad's side (who is my X) is Irish. My son, TJ, treasures his Irish heritage. His wife, Lisa, as a wee bit of the Irish in her. During their wedding there was a lot of Irish tradations. Outside the church, attendee's were greeted by a gentleman in a kilt playing the bagpipes. During the wedding an old Celtic tradition call Hand Binding took place. And the Irish Wedding Blessing was read. The Irish Wedding Blessing and the Irish Blessing are very similar. So when I saw this digi, I thought of Lisa and how she really embraced TJ's love of his heritage. The paper has Celtic Knots on it. I used this paper on their first wedding anniversary card and have some for their wedding scrapbook. The heart is also a Celtic Knot. Inside the complete Irish Blessing is written.
