HIS Banner Over Noah is Love!

Almost four weeks ago, a dear friend of the family had a baby with a heart defect.  Thankfully (and I choose to call this miracle #2—#1 is his life) they found the heart problem prior to birth, so his mom could give birth at a children’s hospital with specialized physicians, nurses, and equipment.

He has left the NICU this week and I thought that was cause for a paper-crafting celebration!

Banner for Noah

In between the pennants with his name are some quotes that I thought would be appropriate hanging near him.

quote 2 quote 3 quote 4 quote 5quote 1

The hearts are from a Verve Stamps set: Wild Thing.  The quote “the joy of the Lord is my strength” is from the Verve set: Serenity.  The Philippians and Psalms verses are Plane Janes, also from Verve.  Finally, the “I believe in Miracles” and Hebrews 11:1 are from Rubbernecker.

The ribbons are from May Arts Ribbon.

Shape dies are from Spellbinders and the alphabet is from Sizzix.

The patterned paper is from “Me and My Big Ideas

I hope Noah’s family and caregivers find this to be an encouragement!
