DT card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 22 : Baby Creation and Blog Hop

Card 1: This a card made with the free baby image from Crafting with  Dragonflies, and the gold swirls are from one of our generous sponsors Flourish with a bling, enjoyed using the swirls as the stick well and are very versatile...

Card 2: The back ground papers are from Far Far Hill, free digi papers and the images including the sentiment is from one of our generous sponsors: Pickeld Potpourri

This is my daughter (now 18) one of my favourite shots of her, she would have been about 2 months old there....and had 10 tiny TOES
After two boys my biggest desire was to have a girl, and God blessed me with one...I was already 37 at the time and the boys were 10 and 13...and yes, I did feel the difference....and she had trouble sleeping through from the get go, so for her first 8 years, neither her or I ever slept through the night... Thank God that;s over....she has turned out to be a wonderful blessing to all of us..

BLOG HOP details:

The way you can hop is by thinking of numbers! Go to each Design Team's blog, read the clues and THINK OF NUMBERS while you do this! Remember - our theme is BABIES, so what do Babies have related to NUMBERS?
There may be a small amount of poetry in there........but I am sure you will be able to work that all out! You collect a word or maybe a whole phrase from each blog along the hop and you need to make sure that
  1. You leave a comment on a blog to be eligible for that blog's prize
  2. You DON'T mention the word/phrase in your comment on that blog!
Leave a comment on the main blog, Crafting with Dragonflies, as well as on each of the girls as you hop along, they all get to pick one winner from their comments including me..... Also follow the instructions on the main blog to finish off the hop from there. 

Happy Hopping Folks

Order of the HOP
If you have come from Tania, then you are in the right place, leave me a comment and make your way to Wynn.....good luck...

Well there you have it, now go and have some fun, blessings Hilde
Remember, you can just play the challenge as always, or do both.....but you must enter a creation on the main challenge blog to enter the blog hop...
