Good Morning Ava!!!


We're home for the day! Oh we needed a break from the hospital. We left yesterday for the hospital at 7:00 a.m. and didn't get home until 9:45 p.m. Ethan is fine, but the Doctors were running behind schedule so that left us running behind as well. Wow were we tired when we got home. I'm a nervous wreck this week. Ethan's scan results should be ready tomorrow late afternoon and we won't hear back from his bone marrow biopsy until Tuesday. I hate the waiting. It's probably the worse. At least once you hear the news, you can deal with it.

So I'm trying to keep busy. The kids are eating lunch and I'm getting to play a little on the computer. Having a laptop comes in handy sometimes. I did make a card with my new Papertrey Ink stamps. I purchased Pond Life and I love it. The turtle is adorable. I raised up the shell of the turtle with stampin dimensionals and I sewed around the edges in a swirl pattern. I'm submitting this for the Splitcoast Wednesday stamp challenge so that is where the layout came from. I played with stamping the fish and the cattails last night too. I really love the new colors this month. I'll have my card posted tomorrow evening for the "BLOG HOP" at Papertrey. So be sure to check in sometime tomorrow evening. We were given a pdf file with small squares of their new patterned paper and were supposed to make something with them. I attempted to make a Father's day card. As most of you know, I don't really like making cards for men, but I do like how the card turned out.

CARD RECIPE:

Stamps: Pond Life (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Summer Sunshine, Lemon tart, Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Everyday Blessings (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Summer Shine (Papertrey Ink), Certainly Celery (Stampin Up!)
Ribbon: Lemon Tart Satin, Summer Sunshine Grossgrain (Papertrey Ink)

Thanks for stopping by. I'm going to try and work on a picture frame this afternoon for a baby gift. After Christmas I got 12 picture frames for about a $1 at Hobby Lobby and they are 8x10 I believe and hold a 4x6 photo. They are unfinished and can be covered with paper and that is what I am going to try and do. Tune back in tomorrow to see if I accomplished this!!! (Maybe if the kiddos take a nap :-)

Here's Ava.....she loves taking a bath, but hates to get her hair washed...so she's smiling because I haven't washed her hair yet. The other picture is Ava getting up this morning. That is her night night and her "bop". Ethan had to get rid of his "bop" when he turned 2. It went out to the trash and the trash man took it away. Ethan was so mad and insisted that we get that trash man back here right now. Ava is getting cut a little slack. Since Ethan has been going through all of these treatments over the past 10 months we decided that we would try to throw hers away after things calmed down a bit. So if you see pics and she's in school with a "bop" you'll know why!!!

Waiting is just the pits, isn't it? Not knowing is so much worse than knowing -- when you know, at least you're no longer in limbo and can make a plan. Hang in there! And keep stampin that cute, cute stuff with your new PTI! (I'm anxiously awaiting mine...) Big hugs!!
