It'll Be Okay Chloe

Oh geez...we have had our first and hopefully last broken bones...
Here is Chloe sporting her neon pink cast which she won for fracturing her wrist on Monday night....lol
We spent a long time in the emergency waiting for them to cast her arm but she was a total trooper! She only started to whine and cry a bit when it was 11:30pm and we'd been there forever. She was exhausted and all see wanted to do was go home to bed :(
Anyway, it looks like she'll have this for about 6 weeks. Just in time for summer vacation to start!
She was really bummed on Tuesday when she realized it's not as easy to do things with only one hand/arm. So I sat down after dinner to create a little card for her using the MFT PI Heart Stripes and My Umbrella(sentiment). The sketch comes from Mercy's MTSC74.
Stamps: My Umbrella, Heart Stripes; Cardstock: White, Night of Navy, So Saffron, October Afternoon DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Word Window Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Scalloped Edge Punch, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Oh, poor Chloe. Sporting a cast during a lot of her summer break will suck! At least it's pink! You are such a sweet Mom to make her this darling card.
Hugs and smiles

Darling card using Mercy's sketch, Dawn. I'm sure Chloe will greatly appreciate it!

My DD broke her arm a few years back and would have loved to have a pink cast LOL! They adapt amazingly quickly to having it on - my daughter was doing most things she normally did without it after a few weeks. Thankfully hers was broken around the same time and was taken off just before summer so we could do swimming lessons! Hope she adjusts quickly and it is over before she even knows it.

So sorry Chloe! My daughter broke her arm the last day of school last year and she is on the swim team. We thought that was a loss for the whole summer but then we found out they do make a "waterproof cast". It was knid of expensive but well worth it. Hope you feel better soon Chloe!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, ouch! My son's one and only broken bone was his wrist, too. But look what a pretty cast to coordinate with her outfits! Adorable card, Dawn. Works perfectly with the sketch!

Jessie/knightrone said...

Poor thing, you just want to squeeze her!! I know exactly how she feels, I was the same age when I broke my wrist....it's tough to do a LOT of things!! The card you made for her is so cute, I am sure she will love it!!
