The second christening card........

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Its quite grey & miserable up here by the sea :0( However its the weekend so who cares wooooooo hooooooo.

Ok remember the other day when I said I was asked to make a christening card but because my confidenceis a bit.......well urgh....... I made a few to see which one turned out nice lol.
I did foofy & fancy, vintage-ish & soft, & also clean & simple. 
Here is the vintage, soft & delicate one.
I was actually pleased how this turned out, again it has no sentiment yet as it could also be suitable for new baby.........good to have one just incase & this suits girl or boy ;0)

 I adore this gorgeous lace that the lovely Sandy sent me when I was GDT for her. The scalloped pearls & Pearl Trim I added to the lace are from WOC.

This beautiful image I got free & I think its on my Pinterest if you would like it peeps, they are lots of free printables on my pinterest. I printed it out on Matt Photo paper..........tbh its not very often I use gloss paper as I love the softness of Matt.
The metal corner I fran-taged up with Shabby white.

This is the inside, a small verse could be put in the square on the left & then I will add a placement to write your own message............not added that yet lol.

I lurve this Pion paper I've used & I will have to get more as it could be used for soooo many occasions. I inked the edges with Pumice Stone as its softer & I machine stitched all around the papers.
The flowers are from WOC & I added a little bit of Stardust Stickles to them, shame it doesnt show as the delicate sparkle looks gorgeous IRL.

Thank you for all your lovely comments my lovelies. I'm will be round to visit you all soon, it may take me all night as I'm babysitting my grandson tonight. Ben & Megan have been invited to an engagement party & they are taking Payton but we think it will be too noisy for Arjay. Also he can get cranky as he now has to wear a special harness 23 hours a day as his hips are not sitting in their sockets. So its not very comfy for him bless him :0(

Anyhoo's thank you for stopping by means a lot mmwah

A Christening Card or Baby Girl

Hello everyone how are you all? Sorry I've not been about I've not been well at all & not bothered with crafting or the laptop tbh. Although when I went on yesterday I noticed the new Magnolia's so had to pre-order them lol. Anyway they finally think they have found the cause to me being ill & in lots of pain so I have to go next week for a preocedure to get it confirmed but up to now its looking like I may have Chrohn's Disease........but we wont know for certain til next week.

Anyhooo's enough of my moaning, sorry my lovelies. Ok I was asked a while ago to make a christening card & well although I said yes, after I was nervous as I had never made one before........EVER!!
Also my confidence on card making is taking a slum at the mo, I dont know why, so I made a few incase some of them were rubbish lol.
This I've not put a sentiment on as it could do for a new Baby Girl as well as christening.....
I've used my favourite baby girl image from Mo Manning & went with lots of foofiness on this one ;0)

The fabric flower flower is from my stash & the white rolled one is a MB die. The remaining flowers are from WOC.

I've made a double bow with seam binding & attached a silver dummy which I attached to some chain, then added a bit of extra bling with the button.

The image is called 'Baby Girl' & she is coloured with copics. I think the colours used are.....
E21, E00, E000, R20
E35, E33, E31, E30
R83, R81, RV10
C3, C1, COO
I also added shabby pink fran-tage around the edges.

I used an MS punch around the edge & the papers are MME 'Lost & Found - Madison Avenue' & I've inked the edges & machine stitched them.

Well thats it from me I have my gorgeous grandchildren today as its Megan's 21st birthday so Ben has booked a day off work & has took her out for the day shopping for new clothes & a bite to eat. So I'm gonna enjoy my day babysitting............ me loves my nanna time ;0)

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
