I have to say I was flattered when a friend of mine asked me to design an invitation for a special group of young ladies who attend the Upper Deck here in Tillsonburg.
The Upper Deck/YFC (Youth For Christ) is a drop in centre for youth where they can feel safe, accepted, and most of know the love of Jesus Christ.
The invitation had to be soft, feminine and special. I say "special" becasue the girls receiving these invitaitons are special although they did not think so in the beginning.
The girls complete a 10-12 week coarse where they learn to love and respect themselves. They build self confidence, self esteem and values. Upon completion of this program each young lady will be invited to a special celebration and it is a big deal. I am not sure of the all the details but I was excited about this challenge and could not wait to get to work on it.
The top card was my first sample but wished I had used ribbon to soften the look so that is how I came about the bottom sample.
I know the "comment" section of my blog is not working but I would like to know what you think so feel free to email me at
Have a great day and remember to make someone feel special today.
