A card a day..

So, just because my plate isn't already full enough.. (lol) I thought I'd challenge myself to do a card a day in Sept. Well, that's my minimum anyways. I also noticed my stash of birthday cards was getting really low, so that's what I'm making lately.

Anyhow, here are my first 3 for the month.

I pulled out my October Afternoon paper pads as you can see. They just make such gorgeous simple designs. Love love love! :)

Baby Update:
So, I went for my 2nd Ultrasound and baby is great, perfect size for the age, 2lbs 5oz. BUT, my blood platelets were back down low again.. So confusing. It means I'll be making biweekly trips to the hospital for blood work, and another Ultrasound next month. It's been a crazy couple weeks, but thankfully baby seems to be just fine, and I'm no worse for wear either for now. :)

Oh, and TGIF!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

I'm so sorry that things aren't going as well as expected w/the blood!! I hope this is all just a fluke!!

beautiful cards...sorry to hear about platelets dropping...mine did that for my last two pregnancies - just meant a bit more monitoring for me and baby. Every so often we get patients on maternity who had platelets drop during pregnancy...for some it just means a few extra peeks at baby on ultrasound :)
