The 5th Belongs to Calvin: In My Heart Giveaways

Calvin's In My Heart picture card

Calvin's In My Heart picture cardDear Calvin,

It’s your 35th month in heaven, and I can’t believe your 3rd heavenly birthday is just around the corner. I wanted to do something creative and design-y for today. So, I decided to create a Valentine’s-inspired e-tag with the message Always, I will carry you in my heart, because that’s how I feel about you and your sisters and brother. To celebrate your special day, I made this one with your picture.

And to say thank you to those who have been walking this journey with our family, I made a free version of the tag and am also giving a couple customizable versions. All inspired by you and your siblings.

You, Rainbow, Gaelen, and Charlie are our light, and we love you so much.

Hugs and Kisses,

To my readers I have three versions of the In My Heart e-tag to share with you: a freebie mini -ecard and two custom/personalized giveaways.

Update: I’ve decided to extend the drawing date to Saturday!

Mini In My Heart e-Card Freebie

Valentine's Day freebie from Dandiewinks One of the things I made is a Valentine’s Day mini e-card. It’s sized at 300×450 pixels, so it would be really easy to send as a text message from your smartphone or print as a 2×3 inch card. Just click on the image to the left to get your version of this sweet “Always, I will carry you in my heart ♥” card—without the watermark.


Custom In My Heart Photo Tag Giveaway

Calvin's In My Heart picture cardMaking this one seriously brought tears to my eyes. The picture of Calvin in it is the one that the hospital took for us, and it means so much to me to have it. Many of you know how precious photos of our children are to parents and especially to babyloss mommies and daddies.

So, I want to giveaway a custom version of this e-tag to a bereaved mommy or daddy as a way to add to the remembrances of their sweet baby. For the winner of this version, I will take a photo you send to me and edit it to show in the heart. Then I will send you a printable, hi-res version that you can add to your keepsakes. The photo/image could be of your baby, of his/her hands or feet, of handprints or footprints, of your baby’s urn, of a special stuffed animal, or anything else special that you’d like me to place in the heart.

Personalized In My Heart Name Tags Giveaway

This last one is open to both babyloss and rainbow parents, and it’s for a version that includes your baby’s name over the heart. Below are four cards with each of my babies’ names—three in heaven and one that continues to grow in my belly: Calvin, Rainbow, Gaelen, and Charlie. These would be sweet to post on your blog/website and/or on Facebook.

  1. I will carry my Joey and Baby Juno in my heart because pieces of my heart are missing and always will. Every time I share Joey’s name and story with someone new I meet I feel like I am keeping her alive in my life. Beautfiul ecard and tags….I would like the custom photo tag if I am randomly lucky today (:

  2. Crystal–these are beautiful! Some of the ways I keep my angel babies Hope and Janessa in my heart is through remembrance jewelry I wear that have their names on it. Also, being able to create pinwheel pictures for others angel babies through my blog pinwheels from heaven and then surrounding their big pinwheels with all these angel baby friends pinwheels keeps them close to my heart. I also have different kinds of baby books that I have for both of my angels that I add pictures to of others who have written their names and of things I’ve done to celebrate their short lives on holidays and monthly angel b-days. (I really like the In my heart name tags)
    Hugs <3 Thanks for doing this giveaway

  3. I carry her not only in my heart but I know her 7 month old twin sister, her 2 and a half year old brother and her 5 year old sister and her dad and many others are all carrying her right along with me! It makes me smile to know how much she is, was and always will be loved!

  4. Very adorable heart!! I can’t really say in what ways I carry them b/c they’re always there no matter what. I hold onto the memories of our times together and their love.
