Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I do hope all are keeping well, and were not affected too much by the high winds over the weekend.

The reason I have not been blogging much lately is I have been updating and buying more storage for my craft room and this has taken me such a long time to do I still have some more items I want to buy but have to do it gradually as you all may know.

A couple of months ago I was asked to make a Christening card and box,

So this is what I came up with.


This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it. 

I used a very old Tonic Die to create the card.

I decided to make a scroll to put the childs name and date of her Christening on.

The ribbon roses are very old from my stash.

Pink and silver rainbow card stock used are Hunkydory.

The white glitter card stock is Italian and from Amazon and die cuts wonderfully.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment especailly as I have been a very bad blogger lately.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
