Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.

Are any of you having trouble commenting on my blog as my dear blog friend has mentioned she an't comment on my blog since blogger changed.
If any of you are, please let me know through an email, and I will see if I can do anything about it.
My email address is on the top of my blog where it says contact me.

A couple of weeks ago I said I had to make cards for family well I was asked to make this card, and box by my DIL for her friends Grand Mother.
They call her Nanny Teapot so could I include a teapot and cup and saucer in the card.
Here is what I created, and the payment for the card went to
 Children in Need. 

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
I started by trying out something with Gilding Polish, and Pixie Powders.
I used Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish on white card, and then I sprinkled Pixie Powders Lava Red, and Rich Gold when it was dry I put it through an embossing folder.
The roses I made out of pink 160 gsm paper with gilding polish on it and put Glamour Dust on them.

Thank you for you visit and your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, Nanny will absolutely love this card and box. Your gilding polish and pixie powders, then embossing looks fabulous. I'm also loving your china teapot and cup and saucer, lovely for afternoon tea.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
