A Card for Max!!

Supplies: SU Baja Breeze, Soft Sky textured paper, white CS. Cuttlebug border EF, SU Soft Sky doublestitched ribbon. Stamps used are Studio G Dollar Stamps from Michaels.
This was a card I made for my friend from work, that I've never met. Julie had a baby boy on June 7th under life threatening conditions. She was due late July. It is beyond words the miracles that began to unfold when she was suddenly taken to the emergency room the day of her baby shower. She ended up having open heart surgery and delivering her baby boy prematurely. The story has a happy ending though, both mom and baby Max are well on their way to full happy lives. The two are actually now famous, film crews came to her home recently to interview her and document the story. I don't know when it will be aired, or under what format, I just know that her case was highly life threatening, rare and miraculous. BTW, Julie works out of the New Jersey office for the company I work for and we got to know each other through email, so like most of you that I've never met out here in cyberspace, I've never met her either!! TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Wow, Anne, what a great baby card, and what an amazing story. Love your nestie frame and that image is adorable. The embossing folder is the perfect finishing touch.
