Sentiments for New Baby or Christening Cards

I love this Bible verse: Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.  Psalm 127: 4-5

  • We're excited God has blessed you with another member of your family.  Looking forward to meeting him/her soon.
  • A baby is a blessing from God. I am sure your little one will be blessed by great parents, another blessing from God. Congratulations.
  • Can't wait to meet the next member of the family!
  • I am praying that God blesses your family as it grows. Wishing you a healthy, happy pregnancy and delivery
  • Congratulations on your developing little one.
  • New life, new experiences, new thrills. Congratulations on your new baby.
  • Life is filled with lots of things that make it all worthwhile but none is better than the love found in your baby's smile.
  • A girl, what a blessing, an angel from heaven, send down in you care, to steal away your heart, Forever.
  • Congratulations and the warmest of wishes to your baby girl.
  • Wishing you a wonderful new world of happiness to share with your baby boy.
  • When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies- James M Barrie
  • May your baby's christening day be filled with love, laughter and happiness.
  • With warmest congratulations on your son's/daughter's christening day. You must be feeling very happy and proud. Best wishes always.

Happy crafting!
