Get Well Penguin....

Hi!  Today I am sharing a card I made for my cousin's little boy.  He recently spent a week or so at Children's Hospital for osteomyelitis of his arm (nasty infection of the bone).  He is at home now, but will receive several weeks of IV antibiotic infusions.  He loves penguins, so I thought this might cheer him up.  I used the sets search4words and penguins4Christmas from The Stamps Of Life.  I just highlighted the "how are you" with the same copic marker I used to color his beak and feet.  I love that word search background and the fact that there are so many sentiments hidden in there for all occasions.

My boys football playoffs start today, so we will be traveling back and forth to games.  My oldest son's team is super good and have a great chance to win it all.  Luke (age 5) is glad the season is coming to an end. LOL!  He has decided that he would rather watch football on TV, and not be part of the game.  We made him tough it out since it is his first team sport, but man...it has been a battle!  Quote: "Mommy, I would really love football if those guys just would quit knocking me down". Yeah.  It hasn't been pretty!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
