For all the precious babies in Heaven

I chose to make baby sympathy cards, today, in honor of my son and two nieces... who never had the chance to grow and play. My son would have been 9 years old, today.

Today's Splitcoast CAS challenge is to make a sympathy card. This first card is my CAS card for the challenge. The second two cards are more frilly for girls and not CAS.

Beautiful cards! I'm so sorry for your loss, even if it's been 9 years ago. Our daughter's 8th birthday was last week. It's hard to believe we've spent 8 years without her.
