Christening Card and a Rascal!

Good Afternoon Everyone and thank you so much for visiting and commenting on my cards, I do appreciate each comment and your time, and it makes the world of Blogging worthwhile.

I am feeling better, still coughing but the good news is that it's not in my chest, went along to see the doctor yesterday and he said it was just a very nasty virus but I'm clear chest wise, I'm doing all the right things to get better and it will just take time. He has signed me off work until next week so hopefully I will feel stronger by then.  Having diabetes means that I could be more at risk of infection
 are not something I take often.

My poor Alistair is having a bout of gout just now, and it's so painful.  It's been a while since he has had this and it's come from nowhere as we are pretty careful as to what he eats and he does take meds for it.  So I'm hoping that it eases off for him soon.

I have a card today that has taking me ages to make, just really because I've not been feeling too good, it is inspired by the lovely Teresa of http://craftingalldayscards.blogspot.co.uk/ 
who makes the most gorgeous cross over cards.


I was asked to make a Christening card by one of my clients for his new Grandnephew. As I mentioned I've taken inspiration from Teresa.
First Edition Paper, LOTV image, from the Art Pads. MB dies, Ribbon Girl Lace, WO Roses, Hobby House Pearls, Ribbon from Hobby Craft and a computer generated sentiment, a little stickles Frosted Lace and Star Dust.

Sorry it's a bit photo heavy, and here is another one, especially for Mrs. Duck;
Sorry I couldn't get him closer, you can just see my boy in the tree.  What you don't see is the big wood pigeon that was in the upper branches and has just flown  off, Teallach had just looked the other way and the bird took it's chance.  I have never seen Teallach over the road, he's branching out, pardon the pun.  He came back in disgusted.

Well, it's started sleeting here after being a really lovely day, so that's the end of the washing going out.
Keep well, everyone and Hugs to those who need them and hope to see you soon.

An absolutely stunning creation Kate - it's so beautiful and you can see the amount of love and attention to detail that went into this one. Sorry to hear you are still poorly - if it's any comfort my mum has had the nasty virus since early December and is only now starting to feel like she's getting over it, hope you and your DH feel 100% better soon Karen x

Wow this is a stunning creation, Kate. So much work and thought has gone in to this it is plain to see and the gorgeous lace edging looks so pretty. I am sure your client will be so very pleased with it.
Glad you are feeling a little better but poor Alistair needs some tlc now, you must keep healthy for the both of you.

Hi Kate
Glad that you are on the mend, even if slowly.
Sorry to hear Mr C is not too good again. My cousin gets gout if he eats prawns!
Your card is magnificent. What a wonderful keepsake for liitle David.
As for your "boy" isn't he the little adventurer now. Not much camouflage about at this time of year to hide from the birdies.
Thanks for the pic Kate. . . . . . . Maybe one day I'll be able to take the plunge and get another.
Keep warm.
