Hoping for some nice, boring days!

Aaaaaahhhh.....

Christmas is done, we are back in the States and getting more or less organised to resume normal life! It is so nice to relax after the hectic holidays.

Whilst we were in the UK over Christmas, we held Leo's Christening at St. Columba's church in Omagh, Co. Tyrone. It was a wonderful service and a really lovely day. It also meant we got to catch up with loads of people all at once!

I've made a couple of thank-you cards tonight to give to the minister & organist (handily, they're married!) and Stew's parents for organising the do. Here they are!

This one is for the minister & his wife. I used supplies from January's Simon Says Stamp kit, and the awesome "Swallowtail" stamp from SU!. I am seriously addicted to those ribbon slides too...

...as you can see! A much simpler card for Stew's parents and this one's SUO. I coloured the ducks (geese?) in using a blender pen & SU! inks.

Finally a quick snap of my gorgeous boys just before the Christening (whilst they were still looking smart!):
