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.

Dana,
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I must have missed the post for cards for your daughter on SCS. Can you e-mail me your daughters name and address so I can send her something. Also you mentioned that she has a younger sister. Can I have her name too so I can send her something as well. Let me know also if chocolate is ok to send to your kids.
Have a great day!!
Rochelle
