Christening Card

Hi all,

I felt a little bit better today so managed to make a few cards, I started off with a couple of small ones which I will post up tomorrow but really enjoyed doing this one so thought I would post this one first.

My lifelong childhood friend had a baby girl a few months ago and he phoned me the other day when I was in the queue for the cinema asking if I would like to be his daughters God-Mother.
I was so overwhelmed and ended up crying in the cinema queue! Bit of a drama and I think the guy behind the counter was slightly freaked out but none the less it was a very special moment. It means a lot to me as his parents are my God Parents and mine are his :-)

I have made this card for my God-Daughters Christening in a few weeks time.

Wow, what a honour to be asked to be a Godmother, you clearly mean a lot to your friend and his baby.

You have done them proud with the card, it's beautiful and will be a very special keepsake.
