Stop and Smell...


Supplies : Sugared paper by Basic Grey; Cardstock and Ribbon by Pebbles; Ink and Button by CTMH; Forest Friends Stamp Set by Papertrey Ink; Waxy Flax

This was such a fun little card to make. I was somewhat worried about the brown with the black skunk but it ended up working out just fine! The colors remind me of baby girl colors. It would be fun to make a card with the little stinker sentiment for a gift of diapers or other baby toiletries, lol. And Jenn asked what punch I used on the last card. I'm not sure if you meant the scallops but I actually just used the paper craft mini scallop scissors. Roberts and Michaels sell them for $1 or less, lol. For the heart I cut it out but the punch that fits these is the little pink EK Success heart :D.
A quick update on Paul, he's finally done with all his IV treatments and he's feeling really good right now. Hopefully that means the Solumedrol stopped the flare up. Of course getting them was pretty crazy, his veins just don't like getting IVs. They just kept moving and even though they did an IV he was supposed to keep in, it didn't work the next day so he had to get poked again. I think he got 7 pokes in all for just trying to get 3 IVs. One of them actually started to take and then his vein moved part of the way through the treatment. We just had to laugh because this kind of stuff happens every time he needs an IV. He has an appointment with the neurologist later in April to see how he's doing and so far things are looking up. Anyhoo, have a happy Tuesday!

cute cards:) Here's a tip my neighbor told me, she's a nurse, about the veins. Mine also roll. Which can be very painful while they are digging around for it. She said not to tell them my veins roll. That when you do that they use a bigger needle, which hurts even more. Hope that helps. Poor guy:(
