Hi all, hope you have not been blown or washed away yet. Blimey, it's windy out there!
On Sunday, while I was out in the craft space and Toad was playing on the Wii, I heard the phone ringing. Now, I don't know about you, but our phone always manages to go to answerphone no matter how quickly I scamper through the house - my mother thinks we vet all our calls! Anyhoo, all I heard were the words "card - Christening - Benjamin". Who the heck is Benjamin I thought as I made a grab for the receiver.
Turns out that it was my aforementioned darling mother calling, and Benjamin is the little lad next door to her. And he is being Christened in a couple of weeks so she asked me to make a card for her and dad to send. I said I would, and then I panicked. Never made one of these before. And it took some time before I remembered that I have this fab Lili Of The Valley stamp called Baby Christening
There was a lot of huffing and puffing over this. I didn't want it too pastelly and pale but I did want blue. So, a rummage through the papers later and I came up with a couple of sheets of Basic Grey, from different pads, and some Coordinations cardstock. However, it was all a bit overwhelmed in spots so I added the lace border and the blue pearls to try and break it up a little bit. Toad thinks it's fine and as he put it It will certainly stand out on the mantlepiece but I hope that it's not so different that my mother hates it.
