Ethan and Ava (Lily and Billy ) Sledding!

When I saw Lauren Meader use this new set, Lily & Billy Winter Plate, from Pink Cat Studio, I knew immediately that I wanted it. It fits my kiddos perfectly and looks just like Ethan and Ava sledding in the snow. Isn't it adorable. I used the colors pink pirouette and bashful blue from SU. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. My snowflakes are punched with the Martha Stewart snowflake punch. The scallop punch is from SU. I added some "bling" with my dazzling diamonds. I can't seem to get enough of these lately. I also added a little more scallop to the edge with my fiskars edge punch.

This card is for my little girl, Ava, who is just 2 1/2 with a very "vibrant" personality. She's not looking forward to her Mommy and Daddy and brother leaving for Philadelphia this week so I made her this card. She loves my cards and loves to run around holding them. Ethan has his MIBG treatment this Thursday so we will be gone all week and Ava has to stay home with grandparents. She's getting too smart in her young age and knows all too well what is going on.

Yesterday was Ethan's benefit and it was just wonderful. There were over 1000 people there and it was just a very great day. It was more than I could have ever imagined. So many thank yous to our friends and family who made all of this happen. Ethan is doing great and had a wonderful time playing all day long yesterday. Here's a picture of him at the barn setup they had to take pictures yesterday. Isn't it adorable. I have to share one of Ava too as she is always helping me take pictures of my cards!

My posts will probably be few and far between with our trip to Philly this week. Have a great week! Thanks for checking in. more thing, I've had a few requests asking where my jammies came from from Saturday's post and they came from Target! Boy do I wish we had a Target where we live!
