Celebration & Thanksgiving

It isn't everyday I am asked to make one of these or should I say two but I was and I said yes. I knew it wasn't going to be easy so I decided I should tackle these at the beginning of the week so that it still gave my friend Susan plenty time to buy a shop bought one if I failed.You can guess I wasn't that optimistic but I was only being honest with myself and there's nothing wrong with that.It was a case of worrying about not having a suitable stamp but after much rummaging I came across this christening stamp and the other one was guardian angel from Sugar nellie.I so wish I had a picture to show you but waiting on the parents to email me one lol

papers-ebay and DCWV nursery boy
stamp-forever friends christening
card candy-The glitter pot
