Precious News

Wow. Do I ever love the new images in this round of the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge. They are all about babies. I love babies and our church has been in a baby boom for the last 4 years - about 60 babies. I make baby cards as often as birthday cards.

This image by Mami Doodles of an expectant mom is darling. This girl looks so hip in her boots and tights, I had to use my new Recollections (from Michael's) zebra striped paper and a buckle brad I have had in my stash since the beginning of time. The orange floral paper is also by Recollections. The sentiment is one of mine. I am not going to offer it yet, though, because I am thinking of changing it.

Could you please help me to improve this sentiment? I am thinking of changing it from, "No word so precious.... No news so lovely"  to "No word so precious.... No news so great". What do you think? The original or the alternate version?

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings on your day,
Teresa
