DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #77 - Special Birthday Card



My DT Card for Lexi's Creations    Challenge #77 - Special Birthday Card
The challenge will run  Oct. 29th - Nov.12,2012. .Please join us at Lexi's  I'm so looking forward to seeing your creations  and while there be sure to check out the work by my team mates, they are a very talented bunch!! 

This fortnight we celebrate Lexi's Creations 3rd year of challenges and in honour of this milestone our theme is 'A Special Birthday Card'.  This can include any major birthday that one celebrates and in my case it is the First Birthday of a great granddaughter! Last year in late September a lovely young lady came to stay with us while she waited to give birth.She is  my husbands grandson's partner and the baby had a heart  defect . It so happened that the city we live in had the hospital that could give the child it's best help upon birth. Five weeks later the little babe was born and here it is going on a year later, wow,  the little baby will soon be one year old!  She is thriving and developing normally and with monitoring should lead a normal life.I could not think of any better  birthday to celebrate than her's, what a treasure she is!
