Oh Happy Day!

Some of you know that my oldest daughter is going through cancer treatment. Well, today was her LAST CHEMO! We are so happy that one part of the journey is over. Unfortunately, the next part is just beginning. Her "roadmap" as they call it, has her having MRIs/bloodtests, etc every three months for the next two years. Then it becomes every six months for two years, then yearly for the next six years. As a cancer patient, she will not be considered "cured" until 5 years OT (off treatment), which that clock begins in three weeks. Time to start counting down.

In anticipation of today and how brave my four year old daughter has been, I posted on SCS if anyone wanted to send her a card. The cards started coming in today. And you know the best part? There were even cards for my youngest (2 1/2 yo) too! So here are a couple pics (sorry about the bad pics! I was trying to get pics done before they took the cards away from me!!! :))

So thank you ladies so much for sending my girls cards! They are so happy to get mail and these cards are all beautiful!

It was also a happy mail day for me too! I'm new to this blog world but have tried entering blog candy give aways for a couple months now with no avail. However, this month I've won twice! (Is good times coming my way now????) I got this from Erika Marting (Stampin Mama) who has an amazing blog with such wonderful creations! If you haven't checked her out, RUN over there! I won this great travel scrap kit that I can't wait to use!

The other blog candy was through Gina K! If you've never been over there, RUN as well! She has some amazing tutorials! I really learn a ton from sometimes just simple techniques! She sent me the new Fiskars scissors and I can't wait to try them out. Maybe this weekend?

Anywho, I must run. I hope to post the baby shower invitation I created (at least the pro-type!) this weekend.

Happy Easter and Spring! May this season bring you and your family many blessings.

New stuff

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything! Things have been really crazy and I'm trying to catch up. Between the family getting sick (including me!), work being stressful and my daughter having to go up to NY for an emergency procedure, i just haven't had the time to "play." I can't wait for next week.

However, I did get the new Papertrey Ink Women of Life stamps last weekend. I found a few moments to make some cards for my oldest daughter's teachers (Teacher Appreciation Week). Of course, she ends up flying with her father to NY for her procedure so the cards are still here at home! LOL!

I also made a few thank you cards. I'm the silent auction chairperson of my ECPTA and a few gals really helped me out by solicting and picking up donations. So I made thank you cards to send out letting them know how much I really appreciated their help. These were also made with PTI's Women of Life Set. I think I'm in love with this set. It stamps BEAUTIFLLY and the design is so elegant.

I wish I could spend my weekend playing, but alas it will be doing work while taking care of my 2 year old! Maybe once my dear husband and daughter make it home safely from NY and my work project has been completed, I can get back into my craft area and play. I have baby shower invitations to work on!!
