     Hello anyone who stops by and thank you for taking the time. I don't blog often not sure it's my thing really but making an effort to make it my thing as I love to craft and seems a great place to pop some of my completed work.
     I was asked by a family friend to make a special Christening card for her Granddaughter. She asked if she could have cupcakes featured somewhere as this was the nickname for the little one. So I took the opportunity to use one of my many cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss some cupcakes so as not to overwhelm the card but send the loving message as requested.

          Spellbinders crosses with Little weed by Crafts too dies were used, and I decoupaged an image I found in my stash.
     I always like to make the back of the card part of the journey so I added a die cut I had from goodness know where and a memory box heart I cut along with the image from the card front.
     For the insert I scanned an image from the invite her daughter had created and used My Craft Studio to crop and fade the image and add it to the card insert to continue the journey.
     Ha Ha I think she liked it as it brought a tear to her eye, job done I think maybe! The lady also mentioned it being a keepsake so while I had my crafty mojo flowing I thought I would have a go at bunting again, and here was my attempt.
     I dusted off my Cricut machine for the letters and embossed each one with the m-bossitillites dots from spellbinders. Marianne Ballet dies with Joy bunting, and Cheery Lyn butterflies and back to spellbinders swirls. The bunting it self is Spellbinders also. The flowers were fabric ones from my stash to add further texture.

     and this is how it turned out, better than I expected and I was pleased with the end result, as were our friends and this is how it was used much to my surprise and pleasure on the special day.
     What a wonderful surprise for me also, and the bonus was the day was a success to for both sets of families.
     Thank you for looking and hope you visit again to see what craftiness I have been attempting another day. Huge hugs and have fun xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
