Happy Birthday Little Guy

A special card fro my special little guy.

Nestabilities, Digi Boutique, Penny Black

My first child Flynn should be three years old today. I know I've mentioned him here before but for those of you who don't know, my little guy didn't make it. He died in my arms and my husbands when he was just two days old after suffering too many complications at birth. He was our perfect little guy. I won't go into details here, that's not what my blog is about but today can't go by without me doing something here to celebrate his short but complete and special life. He was the bravest little boy and just perfect.

On Tuesday it will be his third anniversary and on Wednesday I go into hospital to have his second little brother or sister. What a week. I'm so lucky to have Zac, Flynn's little brother who is making these days so much more bearable and helps me to smile.

I'm popping this card onto Dare U to Digi as their challenge is to emboss.

Hopefully my next post will be to share some lovely news with you all.
