I recently heard about Angel Gowns, Australia, who donate their time to make incredible gowns for babies that either do not survive pregnancy, birth or pass away soon after birth.
They rely on donations of all materials, ribbons & embellishments to make these tiny gowns, often for sizes 0000 & smaller.
This is such a beautiful gesture, at such a sad and traumatic time for families. To have one decision already thought-out for them, of what to dress their baby in, would bring some comfort to Mum and Dad during this painful time.
Here is an example of their work:
While speaking to a friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Debbie about Angel Gowns, I decided to spend some time making cards for their use. They could choose to send these cards as a thankyou to brides who donated their wedding dress or businesses that have donated various items for this special cause.
With this in mind, this is my first group of cards that I made & sent. Vicki has received my cards & Im very happy to say she likes them!
I made 4 cards each of Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon & Blushing Bride, (appropriate, right??)
Im off now, to plan for my next group of cards to begin on, thanks for stopping by :)
