From a withered tree

First of all, I would like to thank you all SOOO very much for all of the kind words, support and many prayers that were said for our family! Each and every one of them was (and still is!) greately appreciated. I'm happy to report that Kylie is doing extremely well adapting to the change of having to take different medications twice a day and we also made it through our first at home injection of the Methotrexate (scary stuff btw!) un-tramatized :) We take her back into Seattle Children's on Tuesday for a full day of tests and her first out patient Hemoglobin infusion. I will take all of this with a smile on my face and even say 'thank you' since I had been on the otherside of the wall thinking for a whole week that my little girl had Muscular Dystrophy.

Kylie also had her first day of school this week and although she had a rough time when I dropped her off at her class, she came home saying that she had a lot of fun and likes her teacher :)

Chloe also started school this week and is proud to be a full time Kindergartner! I asked her if she was ready to go back again for the next day of school and she told me yes and then corrected herself by saying "I'm excited to go!!".

So now that I have two out of three kidlets in school full day, I have more time to get things done during the day so that I may not need to stay up till all hours. I might find out what it is like to sleep again lol!!

Ok so back to stamping, So like I had mentioned awhile ago, I actually have a ton of cards that I have made but have yet to share them with you guys. My goal is to get a bunch of posts scheduled so that I can at least have some eye candy to share instead of nothing at all :)


First up is this ATC that I made for a TSG challenge a few weeks ago. I absolutely adore this beautiful cherry blossom branch that Chris illustrated for the The Journey stamp set. It makes my creative heart happy :)
*Stamp set used: The Journey
*Black base, Sahara Sand mat and Very Vanilla main panel
*Stamped the orchid in Momento, sponged the edges and stitched with sewing machine
*Stamped image again, colored with colored pencils, cut out and layered onto main panel

Stunning ATC! I am glad that Kylie is doing well. Good to hear that Chloe is enjoying kindergarten. Enjoy your little bit of freedom.

Lovely card Jessica! I am SO happy to hear that Kylie is doing so much better (HALLELUJAH!) and that Chloe is enjoying school as well. I imagine that is a huge relief. I hope you enjoyed camping too. You are going to laugh - today walking our dog, I thought to myself "HOW many more days until the next TSG release... oh shoot, it is only the 9th..." LOL!
