Sew New Tuesday (now Wednesday)

As some of you know, my son has just recently been diagnosed with a speech disorder. In short-terms his brain cannot get his mouth to do what it says, so words do not come out like they do with us. It's been very difficult on me and also the family and he he is getting where he knows he cannot talk, no matter what he tries, so it's starting to take a toll on him now too. There are also other things that come with the disorder, but most of the other things are easier to manage. Anyway, because of this, he has therapy with someone who gets to play with him (what a wonderful job, huh) to help him with his social skills (also another symptom) and she also helps us learn to communicate with him-- and another that comes to help him learn to speak-at this point it is through sign-language. All of this has just started in the last couple weeks and has messed up my entire schedule.

I don't normally discuss private family things on my blogs but it is because of all of these things, I will not be able to post new images on Tuesdays, but will be changing it to Wednesdays. I will still have the new images on sale for the week they are released and will do my very best to upload one every week, but in case I miss one or two, I hope you will understand. I have met some fantastic and caring people in this blog world and I don't want to let you down, but for obvious reasons, I have some new things to deal with at home.

Sew (I can't help it) on to this weeks new image....
I am NOT a frog person, but there are a lot of people out there that love frogs and I get several requests for them-For those frog lovers, Meet Freddy and Frieda- This set includes several sentiments that are "Frog" related. You can see them detailed below-All of this for $5 and this week they are on sale for $2.50 for all- Check out the other specials too: Tight now we have 8 packs that have 30 images in them for only $10 each. That comes to less than .35 cents per image.

--- I made this card for the new >Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and will also be adding it to the >Creative Belli Blog that I just found. Oh and I also found a new blog called >Flutter By Wednesdays that I am entering this in- This card speaks love, doesn't it LOL...Well, if anything I love pink and green together :)

I used a Martha Punch on the bottom and layered it and added a few butterfly Dazzles and added some stickles, but it's hard to see all that in the pictures. And last (of course) I sewed along the edges with some bright pink thread.

There are so many great therapists out there, and it can be a relief now that the problem is diagnosed and treatment can be implemented! Thanks for fluttering with us this week!
