its that baby again!

Morning all from a very rainy Lancaster! Hope its not as wet where you are but I suspect it might be! This morning I've got a commissioned christening card to share with you and so my little LOTV baby has come out of the draw to be inked up again!!!!

I followed a sketch over at the fridaysketchchallenge and the colour scheme - being for a girl - I thought matched in with lavendar and lace at joannasheenchallenge. I've used meadowlark papers from prima and because of the layers would like to enter the card over at littlemissmuffetchallenges loads of layers. I've used ribbon, lace and diecuts to cover a line in the tictactoe at bearlymine-challenges blog and I'd also like to hope that a ribbon circle and a paper circle counts as two circles for the challenge at the thesisterhoodofcrafters. Finally I'd like to enter my card into the anything goes challenge at tuesdayalchemy

Let's hope the rain stops - I've got the moonlight walk to do tonight - its in aid of St. John's hospice and involves a 25km walk that starts at 10pm. Its looking wet - but hopefully I'll still have fun!!!!

Big hugs and fingers crossed for better weather!
