MTTC #498 starts 30 December 2022 with Theme of Welcome To The World Baby

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's very excited to create baby congratulations for a dear friend of mine. She didn't get married until 36-37 years old and was blessed to deliver her 1st child/daughter just before their 1st anniversary! Now her daughter has just delivered her 1st child/daughter just before her 1st anniversary! My friend just turned 65 and they are ecstatic for this new chapter in their family's lives. 

MTTC #498 is having a New Year's theme of Welcome To The World Baby and I've created 2 baby congrats cards that are similar to each other. MTTC's #498 starts December 30, 2022 and ends January 12, 2023 at 12:00am CT/Chicago time or 6:00am UK.
