These are the christening cards and boxes I made for my two nieces, Anastasia and Tamara who were christened today. They are aged 8 and 9 so I didn't want a babyish image. I have used this gorgeous Confimand Melinda from Whiff of Joy. I have paper pieced her dress, coloured the rest with distress inks and added some rangers stickles glitter glue to her wings. The papers are all from the free My Minds Eye pack in Cardmaking and papercraft Magazine this month. They really are beautiful, worth buying an extra mag just for the papers. I finished with some lace, ribbon , flowers fromWild Orchid crafts and sentiments made on the computer. I am really pleased with how they turned out.
We had a really funny incident at the christening, the rector forgot to put water in the font!
I am married to Stephen and we have two daughters and a little grandson. We live in the centre of Northern Ireland in a town called Portadown. I work part time and spend most of my free time between crafting and looking after my grandson Ryan who is now three.
