A Change From Christmas Cards

Evening!

A bit of a change from Christmas cards today (which is what I really should be doing, time is marching at an alarming pace!)

My friend's daughters were both baptised on Sunday. It was a lovely service and a lovely day which I'm very pleased to have been part of.

I thought long and hard about what to do for the girls - Eve is 9 and Lucy is 6 so baby cards were not appropriate and I couldn't really find images that I thought suited the occasion so I ended up printing their names and going WOW. I think it works.
