Vintage Baby Dress

The challenge on SCS today was to make a vintage card using ephemera. Would you consider 1944 Vintage????? My mother, who saves EVERYTHING, gave me the cards she and my father received when I was born. I had such a good time looking at them and reading the messages......from people who have been gone a long time. I cut out the cards, saving pieces I really liked, and thought I might use someday.....And I guess someday is here.

My grandmother, mother and I made a Christening dress when I was pregnant with my 1st child, my DS. Gramma did all the lace (11 yards of it!), Mom did the putting together (34 tiny tucks), and I did all the embroidery. A real work of love! My three wore it, and then my grands!! The lace is left over from this dress. (I guess I'm a saver too!) The dress on this card looks just like the one we made all those years ago. How cool is that!!! I hope you like the card and this story that certainly goes with it!!

Have a great day (I am.........that headache is finally gone!) Hugs.
