Joyous Celebration

Morning All,
The other day, my neighbour asked if I would make two Christening cards for Sunday!!  I immediately went into panic mode - TWO cards for's been such a long time since I have made a card that I was not sure my mojo was in any mood to create. Luckily, the neighbour wanted both cards the same as they were for twins - phew!!

My neighbour knew exactly what she wanted which really helped - pink and silver with a cross and this is what I came up with.

The swirl is stamped with Versamark and embossed in silver and the words are computer generated.  The cross was cut by hand and the edges punched with a corner punch.  I don't have any dies that would make a cross so had to wing it - will definitely be getting one soon :0)  I kept the design nice and simple and am very pleased with the final result.  My neighbour was thankfully over the moon with them and announced that she would need a couple more cards in the next week or two so it would seem that I shall be back to making cards and hopefully back to blogging!!

Thank you so much for sticking with me.
