Back story: This is for my great-nephew, Caleb. He has a hard beginning in his little life. He was born very premature, at 24 weeks gestation - only a pound a half. He spent the first 5 months of his life in the NICU, under great care of nurses and doctors.
He is home now, and doing well. He weighs in at 9 1/2 pounds. Still on oxygen, but starting to do real new baby things. His "corrected" age is about 3 months old.
|2 months old - and now|
The card details:
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - I like the tilted designs -- it adds a lot of interest
I am also putting this in Crafty Hazlenuts Pattern Paper Challenge and her Anything Goes Christmas Challenge
The stamp is from W Plus 9 and the pattern paper is from SEI.
I am also putting this in the following challenges:
- The Male Room - Christmas card for a male -- Caleb is all boy!!
- Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge -- Anything Goes
Here is a pix of Caleb going out shopping for his first Xmas tree:
Don't you just love the hat, the blue eyes, and those pinch-able cheeks?
Thanks so much for looking. Have a very Happy Holiday!
