A Christening!!

WOW!!! Two posts in one night!!! AMAZING. Even more amazing given I'm sick at the moment. BUT... I had to get these invitation made for my Beautiful Ella who is getting Christened later in April.

You would've thought I'd learnt my 'cutting out' lesson after my recent post for my sister's Baby Shower invites (check it out here and here), but NO I didn't and I've just spent the last hour or so cutting out little butterflies for Ella's invitations... call me CRAZY!!!

I wasn't sure what to do for these, but this is what I eventually came up with. Hope you like it.

Here is a close up of the butterflies... I cut out 50 odd of these!!!!

Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Live your Dreams Ink:- Blush Blossom Card:- Blush Blossom, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa Accessories:- Dimensionals.

BEAUTIFUL! You did NOT just cut out 50 butterflies, did you?! You crazy girl! Your invitations turned out beautiful. I hope you are feeling better soon!

SARAH...they are adorable!! Girl, I can't believe you cut out all of those butterflies yourself!

get well soon. Your invites are adorable, perfect for a little girl's christening. I so do not have your patience. I cut out 3 'Eastern Blooms' flowers the other week & that was enough. can't believe I used to do decoupage back in the 90's, get very weary nowadays with cutting out. You are an inspiration.
