Butterflies are a symbol of resurrection, hope, joy, and new beginnings. That's why I chose to feature one on my mini card today.
This butterfly means even more to my family. It is a symbol of miracles!
And speaking of miracles...this little one was born this week. My sister Nicole and my brother-in-law John were BLESSED with the birth of their very first child. Here's a photo of little Tristan. They have been married for 16 years and suffered through several miscarriages. God has truly brought them their miracle.
After seeing all that Nicole and John have gone through these many years has truly touched my heart. I cried and cried when I first held my little nephew in my arms. I am bursting with happiness for them both.
Their journey prompted me to make this mini card for a dear friend and her husband who are going through infertility issues as well. And since I'm addicted to making mini cards I'm also entering this into Moxie Fab World's Challenge #23 - Make an Itty Bitty Card.
I placed some white mesh ribbon on the front, punched out a little butterfly, and added a "be positive" sentiment and stick pin.
And before I go...here are a couple of more photos of the little guy!
Here's my Mom, Dad, & Tristan
(Nana & Papa are so proud!)
(And don'tcha just love my Dad's hat? We are in Texas after all! LOL)
And here's my daughter Rachel with her new little cousin.
Their birthdays are 7 days apart too.
She is gearing up to be a great babysitter!
Thanks for letting me share my little story about miracles!!!
