Hello peeps, it’s the Canada Day long weekend here and we are having great weather, although it certainly didn't start that way!
Why am I on the computer you’re probably thinking right? Well I have a special post for you today, because I made a special card for a friend’s daughter and I must get it packaged up with a little gift.
My friend’s daughter, Paula, recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Now one would think that this is a wonderful occasion, but this time there is a sad factor to this otherwise wonderful blessing.
For many years Paula was unable to carry a baby to full term, but recently the medical reason was discovered. As a result of this discovery and subsequent treatment Paula learned she was carrying twin girls.
As with most multiple births, statistics go against carrying them to full term and this indeed did happen to Paula. Heartbreakingly, one twin was stillborn; her name was Charlotte.
Thankfully her sister Claudia survived and is presently thriving so I am told. I will be meeting Claudia for the first time very soon, so of course I had to make a card to go along with my gift.
I chose Saturated Canary’s Butterfly Baby for a couple of reasons.
Reason #1; it is my understanding that Krista designed this image for another special baby who suffers from a rare illness. Krista did this in order to raise money to help the family with their medical costs.
Reason #2; this image has wings, and I thought it could also represent angel wings, as in Charlotte is now and angel watching over her sister.
I discovered this CAS layout somewhere out there in blog land and instantly fell in love with it, but unfortunately I cannot tell you where or I most certainly would.
Sleeper - R00, R20, 21, 22 and colorless blender
Wings - BG0000, 000, N0, R21, 22 plus Stardust Stickles
Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
Eyes/Sleeper bottom - BG93, 96, YG 03

I found this beautiful quote online and thought it appropriate for this occasion as well.
So peeps, I have taken enough of your valuable time, and I must get back to enjoying the remainder of this long weekend with some friends.
Take care and thanks for stopping by JS
