birth announcement cards Anne-Lieke

About two years ago, I started going to yoga classes, and am hooked since. Well, that’s not completely true… the first class was just torture (I could not believe how people could move with their bare knees on that hard floor). But that feeling soon went away. I love Hatha yoga (no strain but relaxation). And I love my favorite teacher Asha (she is just the best yoga guide ever). The last couple of months I have witnessed how she was pregnant, beautifully, and in miraculous ways, was still showing us how to do elegant poses. But now it is time to say goodbye, luckily for just a little while. To celebrate the start of her pregnancy leave, I wanted to make here a special card.

The entire universe is inside you

While browsing Pinterest, I found this wonderful saying: The Entire Universe is Inside You. I knew right away I had found the theme for my card. Not just because this is exactly what yoga is about, but it is also the perfect celebration of the new life that a pregnant woman carries inside here for nine months. Once I got going, I made a few more cards in the same style. One for the newly born daughter of a dear friend from Australia, and a happy birthday card. It may still take a while before spring is here, but these lovely pastel colors make it feel like it’s almost here.
