Get Well Clipboard Card

I saw THIS card and thought it was so cute I just had to make my own version of it. I was making them for a swap and didn't have enough library clips so I thought I would do the clip part with punches.
I used the Decorative Label punch folded in half and the 1" circle with the 1/2" circle punched out of the middle. I used Newsprint DSP for the notebook paper and sponged the edges with So Saffron ink. The main card is 11" x 4 1/4" folded in half with the punched clip at the top, it will not fit in a regular card at this size with the clip at the top so you can make the main card smaller and it will. The card is made out of Crumb Cake card stock and sponged around the edges. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and the rest I just wrote in with a marker. Here is a close up of the clip.

I think I must be in a medical mood with all that's happening with Ashley lately. For those of you who sent all the wonderful emails I thought I would let you know that we had our first 24 hours of sugar levels in target zones! I'm sure it will keep changing but we are pretty excited!

Doctor Thank You Card

I made this card to send as a thank you to the wonderful staff that helped us through my daughters ordeal at Yale Hospital. I really can not say enough about the doctors and nurses and staff there. They were wonderful and made an impossible situation
seem manageable.
I used Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Pacific Point card stock and the All in the Family, Family Business and Afterthoughts (hostess) stamps sets. For punches I used the Decorative Label, Modern Label and Word Window punches.

A Family Update

I just wanted to thank everyone who has sent their well wished for my daughter and our family. It means so much to me that there are such wonderful nice caring people out there like yourselves.
Thank you.
We are home from the hospital and Ashley is back at school today! She is not too happy about having to get her fingers pricked and take her insulin everyday but I'm sure as we go it will get easier. I will be in and out of school three times each day just to make the adjustment a little easier for her so days are going to fill up fast!
She is a little trooper and doing as good as you could possibly expect a five year old to be dealing with diabetes so that is all that I can ask for.
Here is her being her normal goofy self in the hospital while we are desperately trying to get her to eat the right amount of carbs!

Family Emergency

I just wanted to let you know that there might be a delay in new postings this week. We are in the hospital with my five year old daughter, Ashley, who has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. We are getting her blood sugar under control and stabilized and hope to be out soon! We caught it early before any damage was done so we are staying hopeful to manage it quickly.
Check back later this week for some new projects! If you have purchased projects and have any problems or questions I will try to get back to you as soon as possible, please bear with the delay!
If anyone has gone through this diagnosis with a small child any advice is more then welcome! All of the necessary insulin shots and finger pricks are pretty tough. Thanks!
