"On your Special Day"

Hello Blog Friends, into yet another week....................where did the last one go??
The world is spinning so fast these days I am finding it hard to keep up!!!!   Maybe that`s an age thing.  Remember when we were really young and looking forward to something, it took ages to come.  Now I go to bed on Monday, waken up and it is Friday...............or is that just me??
We were at a Christening yesterday, Mia Katie, she is Elaine`s Granddaughter.  Just a very small affair but very nice indeed, a great day.   Wore dark glasses most of the time to hide my eye which is still a right proper mess.   Weather was good although nothing like it had been on Saturday.   I wore the outfit I had planned about a month ago.  During last week I was looking in the wardrobe for something else, It was so blooming cold.  What a difference in a few days.

Today`s card is Mia`s Christening Card

Base card A4 folded white card approx 8 x 6
Piece of white card embossed in a Creative Expression/Sue Wilson designed folder
3 Die cut squares using SB Marvelous Squares which I linked together
SB Butterflies cut in Pink and White
SB Crosses Die cut, layered and a little gem from my stash.  The crosses were sent to me by another great blogger....."Thank You" Jenny (Cardsrus)
A triple bow in white organza topped with a Creative Expressions Dazzler
The sentiment is a stamp.  I did add MIA to the bottom using my Calligraphy Pen
Just noticed I have taken the picture before I did that.  The card is in a box tied up with a ribbon so not undoing that now!!!!

Thank you for calling by today I really appreciate it
Hazel also says thank you for all the great comments on her "Cake"
That`s it for today
