Another first!

I was asked by a smashing friend to make a 1st Communion card for her nephew.  I had absolutely no idea where to start but I knew that this was a very intelligent young man and that it needed to convey the meaning of the ceremony.  I found this simple stamp on Ebay and decided to make as clean and simple as possible with a prayer inside.  This is how it turned out.  A huge thank you to Sarah for finding the Spellbinders inverted scallop circles for me, I'm going to have fun with these.

Here's me with my fab sis-in-law, Sue, before we did our 5k Race for Life walk in aid of Cancer Research in the beautiful Hylands Park in Chelmsford. It was a very warm and beautiful day and I didn't realise how huge Hylands Park is as we never repeated any part of the course. It was lovely just to walk and natter with friends and family for an hour or two. After the walk it was off to the pub for lunch in the pretty gardens of a local pub.
