On Your Christening Day!

Wow where did that week go to? It flew past, with me not posting again...oops! Hopefully now The Perfect Sentiment is back on a Wednesday you will be seeing more of me lol!!

Well as its our first challenge back, we have a really easy challenges for you at The Perfect Sentiment....


it can be anything really, as long as your using on your card!

Where we take our Charlie to the vets, I have started leaving a box of cards for them to sell....with all pennies being donated to the 'Greyhound Trust' which is good cus that's what my pooch is! Well I got a phone call from one of the Vet Nurses asking if I could make her a 'Christening' card.....never made one before! Hope she likes it lol!!

I have gone with decoupaging stamped images & die cuts!

I just wish you could see the pink mirri card better, it's got tiny hearts all over it, looks so sweet!

I don't do the inside very often & did wonder what to put inside but Nige found this free sentiment online which we both thought was perfect!
