YOUR THOUGHTS?

I am feeling especially crafty this year and have decided to create our Christmas cards. (Only after I learned from my mother that I haven't sent out cards is at least two years!) It is a card from our family, and I feel very much that even though she isn't here, Brenna is a part of our family. I would like to acknowledge her in some way without being uncomfortable. So I came up with this card:

I didn't put her photo on there because, well you know, dead babies are not very Christmasy. But I did include her footprints.

Your thoughts?

LOVE it! :) I bought a stamp of Charlie's footprint with angel wings on it (I'm a photoshop buff) and I put a stamp on our xmas cards when I sign them.
I love her footprints on your card. :)
