Big Sister Congrats

This is a card I made for a sweet girl who is so excited about becoming a big sister. I posted the baby card a few weeks ago here. Gabby and her parents have been praying for a baby for a long time and God has blessed them immensely with the arrival of Hannah. I don’t think Gabby would even notice that Hannah is receiving lots of attention, but I wanted to make a card for her as well. Hannah will soon be a month old and Gabby is still thrilled to take care of her. It will be so exciting to watch this duo grow up.
