A Christening Card

Good Morning fellow bloggers - hope you are having a good week. My daughter had a sickness bug yesterday so is off school at the moment - but she is nearly back to normal today, happy, singing and bouncing around - yesterday she spent most of the day in bed!

Anyway, my card today is a Christening card I made for my cousin's little boy. I spent ages trying to get this card just right - my original idea was to stamp the teddy onto the gingham paper but it just did not look right, so back to the drawing board and I coloured it with promarkers. The stamp is from a Daisy and Dandelion set. The papers were printed from a couple of Crafters Companion CDs so I sprayed the finished card with CC silver sparkle. I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday from a couple of weeks ago but did not have the card made in time to enter!



I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Create a Square Card
Elephantastic - Blue

Well, that's it from me for now - I have lots of cards to make, but just can't get into the right mood at the moment - hope my mojo returns soon.

Love, Andrea xx
