Happy Valentines Day & Ethan update

Happy Tuesday. Are you keeping warm? Well, I officially think I am living in a frozen tundra, oh, forgive me, I mean New England. Seriously, it has snowed for the last 3 days, and it is FREEZING! The kids are bundled up in their boots, hats gloves, and snow pants to go if they want to play in the snow at recess. So, I will be spending the day in the warmth of my own home, and I "plan" (doesn't always mean that this works out) on getting some stamping done.

How sweet is this little girl? Again, I used one of the Motivet stamps. I LOVE them, and they are super fun to color too. I made this card for this weeks KLSNS sketch Challenge. You should check it out. It is a SUPER cute sketch and they are giving away FREE stuff.......FUN, FUN, FUN..

I also wanted to say THANK YOU for all that sent Ethan and his family cards during the last month. Amy (Ethan's Mom) said they loved receiving the cards. They would rush to the mailbox everyday to see if any came. So, I thank each of you for taking the time to send some cheer their way.
We were lucky enough to be able to have Ethan & his family join us this year for Christmas Eve, and everyone had a great time (here is a pic of Ethan on x-mas Eve). As far as a quick update with him, he has started a new Chemo trial, and seems to be feeling okay on the medicine. We are all hoping that this is "the one" that makes him better. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Well, that is all for me today. Stay tuned later this week for Pink Cat Studios New Release, and Three clovers Thursday Challenge. I hope you have a wonderful day and happy creating!!!!
Stamps: Motivet, Amuse sentiment
paper: Memory box
ink: copics, memento black
Misc: brads, primas, Michael's heart stick on.

Cute card, she looks so innocent.

Can you send me the address to Ethan again? With the busyness of the holidays I didn't get a card out for him (or any of my stamp buddies) so I would love to send him a Valentine's one.

16 days & counting down :-)

That's fantastickly (?!) cute, Kristen!! Love the layout and that stamp is so sweet!

I'm happy to hear that Ethan seems to be feeling better with this round. I'll keep him in my prayers. I'm so sorry I never got to send a card. I still have the label and I may just do it some day when I can unpack my cards!

Kelly Schelske said...

Praying that this round of chemo is the answer for sweet Ethan!

Happy valentine’s day 2010 said...

Valentine season has come. Wished for someone to be happy with the half love, wished someone who still single to find a place as sharing. Wish someone would contact together after the coming months on how far … Wishes for Valentines holidays filled with happiness, not just smile but sometimes the tears of happiness as well … No love what is eternal, only the moments of love is eternal. Wishes for those who did love, in love and going to fall in love will forever be happy.
