I needed a baby card for a friend, so I pulled out my Gina K. Stamps for a cause "How Sweet It Is" set. I love this image, and the sweet sentiment to go along with it!

When I originally purchased this set, I didn't know how personal the cause was going to affect my family.

You may already know that my son, Lance, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in March of this year. It has been an adjustment for Lance, and the family...but I'm happy to say he is doing quite well. At his 3-month visit, his A1C was 6.6, and the Dr. seemed to be pleased. Lance is still in the "honeymoon phase", but he is hoping to try an insulin pump once it is approved.

***
The Lizzie Anne Designs release is just around the corner (7/25), and the team will be showing projects made with the new stamps starting tomorrow. It's an exciting time, so I hope you'll join myself and the team to see the new goodies!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
