So sad to be making a card today with Papertake Weekly

So terribly sad!   We learned recently that the unborn baby of some dear friends of ours tragically passed away just 5 weeks before he was due to be born.   He is now an angel - forever sleeping.
It was so hard to work out what kind of a card to send and what to say inside.  Papertake Weekly's theme for ribbon and pearls helped enormously. 

Ivory card, Cuttlebug embossed and inked, with a stamped and heat embossed cross.  A little ribboned lace (thank you Janiel) and 5 pearls seemed to produce something suitable.

Hi sweetie can I just say that I was in this position when I was 16 my 1st baby boy came too early & died just before he made it into the world then the following year my 2nd son came to early he tried to fight but sadly just could not hang on & died a day later in my arms. To receive this absolutely beautiful card will bring them peace, love & support hun cus it just say everything your heart is saying which sometimes words cannot express.....this is beautiful & your friends will treasure it with their hearts. I'm sending my love & thoughts to them its something they will never forget & the pain will always remain. I wish them strength, courage & love but most importantly I wish them togetherness cus now is the time when a couple needs to become one.
I am so so sorry for droaning on hunni I've just had my 2nd sons memorium on friday he would of been 21....not a day goes by where I dont think of him & his brother. They will always be my angels.

Huge hugs sweetie

I am so sorry for your friends, Lesley, what an absolute horrible thing to happen. Being blessed with two healthy kids makes you so lucky but also brings home how terrible it is to have such a precious life taken away from you. I am sure your card will bring comfort to them, it's beautiful and heartfelt.
Love, Alex
