New Momma

One of the girls in my craft group has been trying for many years to get pregnant and she has lost a few along the way, but she is about 4 months along now and I couldn't be more happier for her.  Since I went through the same thing I can so understand what she has been going through.

This is another embossed image that was given to me, she even sanded it a bit for me, so all I did was sand it just a bit more, cut it down to fit on my card base, color in their eyes and add the die cut corner and sentiment :)

My Father in law has passed away. We are so glad that he is now with the Lord and no longer in pain. He was the last of our parents to go, such a strange feeling not to have any parents alive now. Thank you all for your prayers and sweet thoughts.

What a wonderful card to give to someone who has tried so hard to have a baby. Very cute card.

My daughter went through a lot to get pregnant and had to do invetro which worked on the first try. I now have my first grandchild, as you know.
