First of Three

I've got orders for three Christening cards, all for the same little chap. I probably mentioned this ages ago when I was first thinking I should get started on them. Then something rather exciting came up which I needed to deal with first - more of that in a week or two!
So today, I finally got the first of the Christening cards done - I wanted to get this one finished as I'll be able to see this particular customer over Easter and so hand-deliver it.
Ooooh I do love the idea of bypassing the nasty Royal Mail if I can! Funny how such small things can give so much pleasure!It;s a funny tbning, but the last time I actually got the stuff out to make a start on these cards (just before the exciting thing happened....;-) ) nothing was working - but this one came together really quickly. Maybe making this one before the one the Baby's mum has asked for was what made the difference as I also need to make a presentation box for that one. I think all the colour matching for box and card was making it seem more difficult - especially as I'd run out of the Lokta paper I like to use for gift boxes.
Anyway, I've now found a new supplier and had a boxful of lovely handmade paper arrived yesterday so it'll be full steam ahead on the other two cards and the box , with no excuses left...:-(

Just in case it all gets busy around the Waffle Corner I'll wish you all a Happy Easter now - while I've got the chance. I hope all my Bloggy friends have a peaceful weekend.

Thanks for looking
