Christening card

Oh my goodness I have just looked at the date of my last post. Where has the time gone? I have been guilty of allowing my job to take over my life but hadn't realised how bad it had got until I saw that the last time I sat down and did something for me was the 4th of November!!!!

This week my Mother asked me to make a christening card for her best friends grand-daughter. When you are asked or rather I am asked to do something I find it really hard to say no and will find time even though I can't always find time for me, the gym ( mind sometimes not too upset about that because its often just legalised torture!) or just relaxing and playing with my craft stuff. I digress!

So the end result was this card.
I really enjoyed making this card and felt quite proud of how it had turned out and I don't usually as I am always the first to see the faults - that's not straight or this is not right etc etc.
