Liberty update on surgery, +card

A little update on Liberty!!.. She is doing very well.. Thank you to EVERYONE for your love, prayers, and support..Liberty surgery was a success.. she did wonderful.. she got out of surgery around 2pm.. on Friday.. she will stayed in the hospital for 24hrs.. The first things she said to me when she woke up was.. "I want a pop-sopt-kal" (Popsicle) :) The nurse asked me what color I thought she would like.. she said they have purple, red, and orange.. I said probably orange, since it has less die.. Liberty without missing a beat, eyes still closed said.. I want red.. in a sweet whisper.. so she got red.. she took 2 bites and fell back to sleep.. I love her spunky, sweet spirit.. even when she is in pain.. :) this is a picture of her and her brother.. while she was wheeled out of surgery..
For my card I used The Crafts Meow Stamp Set Life is a Carnival set.. I just adore this set, and thought it would be perfect for this sketch.. :) I stitched the "ground" for my elements to go on, instead of drawing them out.. I thought it would add a little more dimension to the card.
I also bent the tickets so they looked more "real" the Ferris wheel and the sentiment are on pop dots to me them Pop off the card.. Thanks so much for looking HUGS

You must be so relieved! Reminds me of my 3 year old waking after a hernia op and asking for Rice Krispies but with no crackle 'cos that would be too loud, lol!
Love the card and good tip about the tickets.

I am so glad to hear all went well. I know that when my kiddos where young it was the hardest thing to see them go through that. {still is hard}. But praise God that she came through ok! Prayers still going out to her and your family!

Smiles!
