Christening Card

Hello everyone, I can't believe how quick the weeks are going at the moment not only is it just over 14 weeks until Christmas it is only 28 weeks until Benn and his friends have to sit their exams., how can that happen, I'm sure it was only a few weeks ago that he started school lol.  Well that's how it feels anyway.

I also can't believe that in this day and age people can be held as slaves or that it could happen where I live. The whole town is shocked to think that this was happening right under our noses to these poor peole and why the police left it so long from when they were first made aware to finally raiding the place.  All I can say is thank god they did though as it is absolutely shocking and so sad, I had never seen so many police around as there were last Sunday.

Well I know I haven't been blogging much lately but I haven't been very well, I have been suffering lots of migraines.  Saying that I haven't been slacking either as I have still had to get a few customer orders done but haven't had the time or indeed the enthusiasm to download them from my camera yet but I thought it was about time I updated my blog as I hadn't realised how long I have neglected it.

Here is a christening card that I was asked to do a couple of months ago but haven't had a chance to show you (see I told you I was pretty bad at downloading my photos didn't I).

I am going to enter this into the following challenges.

Crafty Ribbon - Anything Goes
Ruby's Rainbow - For the Girls
Fab n Funky Challenge - Bingo (Embellishment, Ribbon & Diecut)
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Monocromatic
Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes

Well that's it from me today but I promise I won't leave it as long next time.  Hope you all have a good weekend.
