Hey everyone ….

I’m having some time off work this week to get some chores done although I haven’t actually done much yet because the weather has been so gorgeous  …in fact I’ve been completely lazy if I’m going to be honest!!
I set off for Marks & Spencers yesterday to get my friend a birthday present, it took me all day to muster up the energy to go and then I got 5 minutes down the road, got stuck in traffic and turned round and came back home!

This is a Christening card I made for my friend, I’d already taken the picture but just before I gave her it I decided to add a couple more flowers to the top right of the image so this isn’t quite the finished result.
She was really pleased with it, I’ve done a few recently with names and it makes them very personal and something you could never get in a shop.

All Our Dreams

Here’s what I used on the card;
Lili of the Valley stamp – all our dreams – coloured with ProMarkers
Core’dinations card
Maja design paper (I love this paper for boy’s cards, it’s so hard to find a good blue one)
Tim Holtz brads
Lace and flowers from The Ribbon Girl
Spellbinders nestabilities labels 18
The sentiment and name were done on the computer

That’s it from me today, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day x
