Tilda with Baby Tingla for a Special Friend
Well it is Monday and March is underway! The weather here is unbelievable snow & ice last week and this week we will hit the 60 degree mark. At least the sun is shinning and spring is a few weeks closer. Did you have time to craft this weekend? I did and I actually got a couple of things finished.
We have a Bible study group with four couples. Three of us have married children and about 7 months ago we were trying to figure out who was going to be grandparents first. Well it's not me; it was my dear friend Susan. Her daughter was due to have a baby in May. Her daughter moved to Palestine in January and last week came down with severe preeclampsia. Praise God little Madison Joy was born 10 weeks early and very tiny 2.5 lbs. but according to the doctor is very healthy for her size. And Madison's mom is also doing well too. We will continue to pray that Madison will grow and be able to go home with her parents in a couple of months.
I made this card for Susan. The handwritten note was what she had posted the day after Madison was born. The picture of her sucking her thumb is just too cute. Here is the back of the card.
I used this template from one of my Magnolia magazines. It seemed fitting for a dainty little girl. I used paper, ribbon and fibers from my stash to decorate the dress. Of course had to add some bling. Tilda and Baby Tingla were colored with Copic Markers W00, W01, E000, E00, E11, E31, YR20, YR21, R000, R00, R01, R20, E41, E41, and E43. I thought the sentiment was quite appropriate for this card. Lastly, I added some glitter to their wings.
Here is a close up of Tilda and Baby Tingla.
Thanks for stopping by!
