No Words

Sometimes there are no words.

A precious young couple in our family lost their baby Tuesday night.  Three weeks from delivery, there is no explanation why the baby's heart suddenly stopped beating.  This morning she delivered their stillborn son.

What do you say?  What can you possibly say or do to ease that pain?

I tried to make a card which will honor their little boy who has flown to heaven.  Yes, we know he is safe in the arms of Jesus, but it still hurts to know he won't be resting in the arms of his parents here and now.

The bird is painted with pearl white Lumiere.  It looks harsh in the picture, but really adds a beautiful touch of angel dust.

The words have been "kissed" with Boutique Borders in Twilight over Heavenly Blue. I've also used Buttercup ink, ribbon, and paper.

I hope it brings comfort and conveys in a picture what words can never hope to express.

Until next time,


  1. I so am sorry to hear about your family's loss. I cannot imagine what the parents must be going through right now. Your card is beautiful and I hope it will bring a little bit of comfort to them. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  2. What an absolutely beautiful card, Becca - and really hard to make, I'm sure. Thanks for joining us this week.

  3. Just beautiful, I'm sure this was a tough one to make. What do you say? There just are no words...Your card is a thoughtful show of support. Thanks you for sharing it with us at H2H.

  4. My heart goes to that young couple. I hope that this card will bring them some comfort. It is truly beautiful

  5. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for their loss - my daughter lost both of her 1st 2 babies - not that close to delivery but at 4 and 5 months and that was so very hard....your card is beautiful....I hope they find peace and support from those around them.

  6. Becca, there are no words. So sorry for your family's loss. Beautiful card.

  7. It is hard to make a card under such difficult circumstances but your card seems inspired.

  8. What a wonderful card, both in detail and emotion. So sorry for your family's loss.
