Happy 1st Birthday!
Jessica here popping in to share a sweet baby's 1st birthday card I made for a special little girl using Rhubarb's Birthday Wish stamp set. I paper pieced Rhubarb with some textured brown paper and added a little paper pieced cupcake to his hands for the birthday girl. Rhubarb is my go to stamp line to use for cutesy birthday cards lately! I just love him!
I'm going to bore with the story on why baby Grace is so special to me and my family. I taught Grace's daddy when he was in fourth grade while he was living in Michigan which is where I student taught. Grace's mommy Hannah is the daughter of a former teacher of mine who is from the school that I am currently teaching at in Wisconsin. Before they were married, they were reminiscing about teachers they both mentioned that one of their favorite teachers was a Miss Ewers. Since my maiden name isn't the most common one, Hannah called me up out of the blue and asked me if I ever taught at such and such school and did I remember teaching a Tim while there. I did and we all had a good laugh. Isn't that funny? They met at college, married, and are now back in the area and going to our church. It's really a small world sometimes, isn't it?
Have a blessed day, friends!
