Christening card

Here is the card I have made for a christening. I have used this gorgeous stamp from Whiff of Joy called Confirmed Melinda, coloured with my promarkers and glittered the wings with stickles. she is mounted on silver card and then pink card. The swirls are cut on the cuttlebug and finished with some little pearls. I printed the sentiment on the computer and then cut out with my nesties. The little paper roses were bought from my local craft shop and some organza ribbon finishes it off.

Todays Efforts

I have made some bits to send to Crafty Granny for Crafts & Cards for Alicia I hope they are ok.


These are just cheap shopping list pads covered in basic grey papers with a bit of added decoration.


These are some little calenders I didn't have any beer mats so have cut down some mount board to the right size again covered with basic grey papers and some flowers added.


These are tic tac holders with a little poem inside.

And these cards are to go to Ikki for her breast cancer appeal.
