My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

3 August 2012

Naming Day

Morning crafters ... it's Friday and I have come to the end of my 2nd week off, but still have another 4 to go :O)  I just wish the sun would shine a little bit more!

Firstly I would like to welcome my new follower - thank you for stopping by - I hope you enjoy your visits here and find inspiration from my work.

So today's card, surprise surprise is not a DT one! YAY!

It's a commission I had this week from one of my neighbours in the next street for their Grandson's naming day on Saturday.

The card was delivered safely yesterday and they were thrilled with it - I love doing commissions, but always worry when they have given you very little brief that they will actually like what I have made!

LOTV Die Cut Image
Hints of colour added with Flexmarkers
Kanban Swiss Dots Cardstock
Papermania Blueberry Pie Papers
American Crafts Ribbon
Liquid Pearls
Pearls - NEC Stash
Computer Generated Greeting
DieNamics Letter Dies Using Kanban Cardstock

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
