Cards for Little Boys

I am delighted to report that I have managed a little crafting today! This was alongside walking the dogs and driving Alex to school at lunchtime for her Graphics GCSE. Alex officially started her study leave today, so no school other than the last three exams (my crafting may suffer with this change of circumstance!)

It is my youngest nephew Otto's christening in July, and following a little ebay purchase of another die, I knew exactly what I wanted to do on his card. My OH has been asked to be Otto's godfather which he was delighted to accept and then I pointed out that the christening is to take place on the same day as the World Cup Final! Goodness knows what will happen if by some miracle England make it to the final!!!

Whilst all those appropriate papers were out, it made sense to me to also make a first birthday card for a friend's little boy Ben.

Hope you have managed to craft today too!

  1. It isn't by chance a little boat die Carole?
    Fab cards and oh dear - christening on day of World Cup final!! Hope I'm proved wrong but I don't think we'll get that far!'s probably an evening match.

    p.s. So far I've resisted the temptation of the kennel - mainly 'cos I don't know the # of the die so didn't order on ebay. Do you have a "squeeze" or larger die cutting machine?

  2. Lovely cards Carole, so much yummy crafting, how wonderful!

  3. Hi Carole

    What fab cards. Know what you mean about the Christening on the day of the World Cup Final. Alexandra's christening was on Guy Fawkes night and also the day of the Scottish Cup!! I'm sure my brother disappeared for a bit that afternoon!
