DP Miracle from Above card

I heard a statement on the news last week that more children are born in September than any other month. I had my son in September a couple of days before my cousin and a close friend had their daughters, the same year. All three of us had waited for many years to have children.  They were truly a cherished gift, the answer to much prayer! So I made a couple of baby cards, just to be ready for a joyous occasion.

Here's one I made using Doodle Pantry's "Miracle from Above" image and patterned paper. (I flipped the image in photoshop so that she'd face the flowers and opening of the card.) I embossed the background with the 5" x 7" CTMH dot embossing folder.

This is what I typed inside:
A baby is a blessing,
A gift from heaven above,
A miracle of life,
To cherish and to love.

Children are a gift from the LORD;
 they are a reward from him. (NLT) Psalm 127:3

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you and the "babies" in your life with His joy and love!
