Make a Wish!!




When GinaK announced that her newest Stamp for a Cause set was going to benefit JDRF and the ADA, I knew I *had* to get it. My sweet little Jillian was diagnosed with diabetes alittle over three years ago, at the tender age of two. So young to be afflicted with this horrible disease. Even being a nurse, did not prepare me for the plan that lie ahead. I've learned alot in the past three years. Most importantly I've learned that my little "Jillybean" is one tough little girl. She makes me so proud.




Now to the card...

These images from "How Sweet it is!" are sooooo fun to color. I wanted something bright and cheery. I love how this one turned out. I used my copic markers. I just got a "few" more from Joy and Daisy. The icing has some sparkle to it, from the Spica Pens, but that doesn't show very well. The sentiment on this card is from the "Birthday Turtle" set by Inky Antics.


Enjoy, and please make a wish that they find a cure for diabetes!!!

Oh, what a great story! My daughter also has diabetes and was diagnosed at 4 years of age. She is now 26, married and has a little boy 18 months old!! All the worry, tears and frustration NEVER go away, but it does ease somewhat as they get older! My thoughts are with you and your daughter!!
