Thanks Mom!!!

Lauren's Saturday Sketch (just a little early)!

I talked my Mom into helping me out since we are still out in Philly. This is the creation that she came up with for Lauren's sketch. I had time now to post so I thought I would.....tomorrow might get a little hectic. We might actually get to come home tomorrow. That would be wonderful. Ethan is doing rather well. I've said this a million times, but he doesn't look or act sick, in fact he looks great. They have him on a sedation med to keep him pretty mellow since he can't get out of bed. We'll find out in the morning if we get to fly out sometime tomorrow evening, wouldn't that be wonderful!

My Mom made this card using a new Stampin' Up set. It will be available starting on October 1st. This is called Winter Post. The snowflake punch is from Martha Stewart, she picked that up at Wal-Mart and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from a hostess set called Punches Three. She used the small oval and scallop sqaure punch from SU and layered them. Circle nestibilities were used for the main image. I don't actually have the card, so some of my guesses might be wrong, but I think I'm pretty close. The colors she used are kraft from PTI, Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla from SU. I couldn't tell you what she did at the top. Your guess is as good as mine.....she has an endless supply of ribbon, so who knows. It looks like felt with stiching. I really like how this turned out. I wrote Lauren on e-mail and said that I probably wouldn't have anything, so she'll be surprised to see a post from me tomorrow.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. We are just hoping to come home and praying that this treatment worked on our son. It's very overwhelming being at a new hospital in a new city and not knowing anyone. Hopefully I'll be back to post early next week with some new creations, I'm more than ready to stamp something and I am very excited to try out something new on our pumpkins at home. I saw these pumpkins painted in a magazine that I was reading and they look so cool.....that will have to be our arts and craft project next week!

Thanks for checking in and be sure to check out the other gals doing this sketch too.

OMG...I LOVE your mom's card :O) She is awesome for doing the sketch in your place! That's so sweet!!!!

You, Ethan and the rest of your family are still in my prayers. I hope the treatments work as intended.

Also, I know you are super busy not only with being a dedicated mother, but also with stamping. I tagged you on my blog today...because I admire your strength (and your creations). If you're interested in playing, please make a quick visit to my site and copy the rules :O)

Hope your trip home is swift and safe. Have a great weekend!
