Santa Visit and Saturday Sketch!


It's Saturday and time for Lauren Meader's Sketch. This is what I came up with after I flipped the sketch. I just got this set from SU and I love it! I've wanted it for a long time and am so glad I got it. Won't it be cute for a scrapbook page title! I found this patterned paper in my stash. The colors I used were pure poppy from PTI and bashful blue from SU. I cut the snowflakes out with my Pazzles. I didn't know how it would cut with them being so small, but it worked perfectly. I added some bling to the whole thing with my 2 way glue pen and my favorite, dazzling diamonds.. It's such a cheery card and we definitely have snow, lots of ice too!

Last night my husband and I took the kids to see Santa (for the second time because Ethan forgot to ask him for something!). They just love seeing him and aren't afraid at all. Of course I had my sanitizer in hand....there are lots of germy kids! Ava wasn't even afraid. They asked him for lots of things and even waved good-bye. For $2 you could take your own pictures too. I just love this picture! Too bad Santa couldn't show up for all the pictures I want to take of my kids!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. We did end up traveling yesterday, but then had to turn around and go to our local hospital in the hopes of getting platelets here. It didn't work out as planned though and we are heading back in this morning to get platelets for Ethan. I'm just praying that we don't end up in the hospital with any type of infection for Christmas. What a bummer that would be. We are enjoying the Christmas festivities. Our first Christmas is this Sunday and then we have a couple more spread out throughout the week.
Thanks for checking in. Be sure to stop by to see all the other gals cards too.

Oh what a cute card! I love your color combo...it's so cheery :O)

Sad to hear you have to travel today. I pray you don't end up in the hospital over Christmas also. The kids look so happy sitting on Santa's lap, I'm sure it would be so special to let them both wake up together on Christmas morning at home to open presents :O)

What did Ethan forget to ask Santa for??

Safe travels, Alicia.

You'll be in my thoughts this holiday. I hope Ethan will be able to wake up from his own bed on Christmas morning.

Great take on the sketch. Love how you flipped it!

Hugs to all

I'm new to your blog (found it from a link from Lauren's blog) and love your cards! I'm so touched by the story of your son, Ethan. I have a 4-year old nephew with the same name and couldn't imagine him going through what your Ethan has to endure. It will only make him stronger! Your children are adorable! I hope you have a very healthy Christmas and New Year!
