Summers Christening Day!!!!

Here is Summer with her proud Great-Grandparents xxx

We had a really lovely day the weather was cold but at least it stayed fine.

The cake was in lilac and white and looked beautiful.

Now my card there are quite a few pictures of this card but I was really please with the design and these papers where perfect. Because the papers are co-ordinated they are so similar you really can't see the detail in the pictures.

I have used the Christening image from Lily of the Valley and coloured it with copics and added glamour dust!

You can't really see this but its the most beautiful glittered velum which I found last week at the Craft Box I have torn and inked the edges.

The large section of flowers are punched retro from co-ordinated prima papers and some beautiful new additions I found in hobby craft!

More pictures of the flowers and you can see where I have cut the image to sit out of the nestie!

You can find a tutorial for this over at Rach's blog here!!

Finally some white seam binding a perfectly matched pink button and sentiment.

Thank you for all your lovely comment I have received I really appreciate them all and they always cheer me up!!

Things are still the same here but what will be will be!!!!

I also forgot with all the hassle to let you all know that Dusty is OK and after all her blood tests and urine tests they still can't find what the problem was and they just think she was having a reaction to something!! what it was we will probably never know!

My Mum is in hospital having a small operation today ready for another in a few months so I have everything crossed for her as she was very nervous!!

Hope you all have a great week Loads of Love Chanelle xxxx

Karina said...

So lovely pictures and Summer is a darling. Thanks for sharing those pics with us.
Your card is stunning. Love everything on it. So many lovely details. Gorgeous!
And I'm glad Dusty is fine again. I had something similar with my cat few months ago. They didn't find out what he had. But the most important is that he's fine again, and so is with your baby.
Hugs, Karina
