This card is for my Granddaughter we went to her naming day last weekend and I made this card to hopefully look like her- we had a beautiful time in the local park with all the family there and a few friends as well- she is one and a half years old and they have been trying to give her a day for some time but each time it is organized one of the children gets sick- Rose is the youngest of three and usually when one gets sick they all get sick so it has had to be postponed a couple of times- they all had colds again but they thought they had better go ahead with it this time. As you can hopefully tell by the picture Rose has red hair- and is affectionately called “the ginger ninja” by her dad,  she has even started saying “ginger” if anyone says it now. Quite a difference from her older brother and sister- they have taken their mothers Italian side and are both quite dark in colouring in comparison but her mothers’ sister also has a red head- so it must be in both families- my husbands family have red in their heritage – at the moment she hasn’t got the renowned temper of a red head in fact she is quite the opposite and is very passive with most things but doesn’t  let anyone get away with upsetting her. Both girls in the family do have quite loud and very high pitched screams if and when they are upset and cry.

This is  for the   Forgotten Stamp Friday-Week 15 at “Can you say “ Addicted” to stamps” blog- this is such a great blog sight and so appropriately named for me at least.  This Flowersoft  “Moments in Time” stamp was one I bought a while ago and have only used it a couple of times because I was never sure about colouring but I’ve been practicing and I think it looks ok. The tag with the title was given to me by one of the members  of my U3A card class who has this set of dies and she kindly cut several of each of the labels for me- Thanks Doreen
