For today's Free for All challenge---using the negative of the die. I also made this card for the HYCCT challenges.
Several years ago now, my friend's baby daughter was born pre-maturely with cancer and died a few weeks later---such an awful time in all of our lives. One of the things I remember her saying to me is that it made her sad that there would be no celebration of her baby's birth. No shower. No Congratulation cards. She thought her baby was a beautiful gift and thought her short little life should be celebrated regardless of the cancer or the prognosis.
So I made a 'hello little baby' card in honor of my friend and her baby. That was quite a few years and several children ago, but on Mother's Day I still send her a card for ALL her kids, including the little one who is romping in heaven :)
I had trouble fitting my card with one of the challenges (I thought about For Kids Sake, but it's really for mom, not the kids) so ended up fitting it into the HYCCT challenge: H-hello, Y-yellow safety pin, C-cloud, C-clothing, T-teal felt
ETA: I didn't get this sent off in time last time, so I submitted it for publication in Simply Handmade: Baby, July- August 2013. But since I I just got it back from the publisher I can send it off with this last round of HYCCT challenge cards :)
