First Communion

I have spent most of the day on my feet as its seems to give my back some ease. I lay for about half an hour with a heat pad on. It has helped a bit:) While on my feet I did bake some bread, cranberry buns and semolina biscuits and then a nice stir fry for the tea. I am completely wrecked now though!
It seems to get earlier every year (like Christmas lol) but its time for First Holy Communions and confirmations! I enjoy making these cards especially the Holy Communion ones as I get to use my Whiff of Joy stamps. Isn't he just adorable?
