RETIREMENT CARD AND BOX


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

I do hope you all are keeping well, and for those of you feeling poorly or under the weather I am send lots of get well wishes your way.

Today I have a Retirement card and Box I made for my daughter's work colleague. 




The card is 8"x8" in size and the box I made to fit it.
Forgot to mention that I made this card blank by cutting down 2 A4 size cards.
The lady in question has a Black Lab dog so the request was for that on the design. 
The image is
 Pollyanna Pickering's art work, and papers from her CD which was lent to me from a friend.
I decided to go with a hinged design to accommodate the little 4" cards to sign by all the staff.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit and super comment you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

ANOTHER CHRISTENING CARD AND BOX


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

The other day I got a lovely surprise in my post I received a set of dies from Practical Publishing saying congratulations for being featured in Simply Cards & Paper Crafting Magazine.
Now they did not say what issue it was shown in, and I have emailed them, and not got a reply.
If any of you perhaps has seen the magazine with it in could they please let me know which issue it was in.
I sent it all in before my dear hubby took ill so I forgot all about it. 
Hope somebody can help.

Right back to today's post.
Here is another Christening card and box.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
I used John Lockwood's Oakham Die which is so gorgeous.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
