Baptism


Hello, here is what has taken so much of my time this week.  It is an easel card and Ive used Mo's beautiful baby attending church for the first time!  I knew she had this super image so when I got the order I headed straight off to buy it!  Ive used white sparkle card behind the image and the sentiment and its my first time for attaching a little charm with a few stitches onto the ribbon bow.
Its also a first for me to use little beads as the flower centre, tiny little clear and silver beads set in glue just to add a little hint of 'special' to it.
The bp is all Pink Petticoat with the usual suspects from my stash.
I made a box for it to go in as obviously it was too deep for an envelope.

Ive had a busy sewing time lately, I made new curtains for our newly decorated bedroom last week and today made myself a pair of trousers but there's still loads more to do!

Ive also been kept busy selling my SIL's M&S clothes that her hubby buys her and she's not that fussed on them!!  She gave me nearly 30 items (which apparently is only the tip of the iceberg!), most of those still had the tags on them! How mad is that??  Ive only managed to list 13 items so far and they are all active and keeping me very busy!

Thank you for visiting me

It's a beautiful card Keryn, well worthy of the invested time. And not to be rude, by why doesn't your SiL just ask him not to???!!! Mine would swallow razor blades before buying me clothes!

What a wonderful card Keryn. I have two christening cards to do and am definitely going to use Mo's baby images - I adore them. So are you ebaying it then - I go through phases when I am having a good clear out - it'd definitely worth while! Cheers Claire x

A woman of many talents Keryn! This is gorgeous, the best image there is, and believe me I've looked, for a christening card. Don't work too hard today.

I absolutely love this card Keryn, its gorgeous and so girly pink .... perfect for the little baby! That image is so sweet too. I know the feeling being kept busy, haven't had much time for crafting this week at all, more painting and DIY to do, but my craft room should be finished by Saturday! Can't wait to get moving in there. Have a great weekend hun, take care love Claire x

Absolutely gorgeous Keryn ! Mo's images are rather special and you've certainly done this one justice. Can't believe you've made yourself a pair of trousers....my sewing abilities are what you might say 'rather suspect'...lol...Sue C x
