a couple of Mo Mannings

Hiya peeps, hope your all keeping well.  I've recently had a few orders, these being two of them.  I was asked to make a baby's 1st Christmas for a lovely friend of mine.  I got this gorgeous lil image from Mo's Digital Pencil, I've not used any of her images before but have admired her illustrations for a while now.  I've coloured Kai with Copics, the papers are DCWV.

Here's what the inside looks like and the box.

Another first for me is to make a Christening Card, I was totally stumped what to make until I saw this beautiful image over at Mo's Digital Pencil, I've coloured her with Copics and added some Glamour Dust.  I've had these papers for yonks, not sure who they are by sorry.  Flowers from Hobbycraft, Martha Stewart butterfly punch from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

And this is what the inside looks like. I was asked if I could put the baby's birth details on the card along with the Christening details, then I found this lovely verse on the internet.

Well I only have two more days left in work ...yippeeeeeee!!!!  My daughters break-up next Tuesday which is great for me, not for them though.....lol!!!! but at least it'll give me a few days to get more organised for Christmas. 

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, lots of luv 'n' hugs to you all xx vicki xx
