Christening Card

hello friends!!
hope you are all okay.  Thank you all for all your kind comments and words recently. Really means so much to me - I feel I'm not alone!! 

anyway here is today's cards. Yes I did say cards! LOL. after not being a very good blogger recently I thought I better show you these 2 which I made today. These were made with about 4 hours notice. Although they are not needed till the weekend the lady requested them for today.

Firstly is a christening card. Now I don't have the fab LOTV image christening image of the baby with the window behind it and sadly I thought it may be a digi stamp but no as usual Rosie got it wrong again. LOL.
So I used this Forever Friends bear from my triple CD. Because of the short notice of the request I simply printed it out and matted onto pink cardstock and then onto the base card.

 The wording is done direct from the PC onto the linen cardstock printed in pink using the font Francine. I like to do personalised cards as you can buy any card from the shop but a personalised one is more special - well I feel it is anyway.

here is a close up of the bear.

Next I was asked to make a wedding day card. Again I used a well requested style which I think is very popular now with us crafters. 
The colour choice was red and although it looks rather reddy orange here it is definitely red!!

Again this is personalised with the bride and grooms names on along with the wedding date itself. I printed direct on the linen base card then matted onto red cardstock. I rounded the bottom corners just for a slightly different look.
I wasn't too sure if all the wording should be printed in red so  I tried it but I felt it was better this way.

Hopefully they will like it!!

thanks again for sticking by me you are all stars!!

hugs always to you all
