My name is Melissa Pinter and I have a 2 year old son name Ethan Pinter who was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia att the age of two months old. This is a rare disease because he was not born with Bio Ducts. So Dr. Pintinger and the Akron Children's Team reconstructed them and the procedure was called a Kasi. So at the age of 8 months old Ethan and I were Life flighted to Cincinnati Children's because he had Upper GI bleeds. The only thing that woud help him would be a New liver. Feb 18th 2011 he had recieved a half of another babies liver. This baby saved my son's life and we are so ever so greatful. Ethan and I had waited a total of 9 months for this. We have been seperated from my husband and daughter during that time. Ethan is now 2 years old and is having complications and we are currently living at the Ronald Mcdonald House in Cincinnati till we get him better. He has two crucial virus's that he is currently fighting, they are the EBV Virus and CMV Illuminitis (Fatal Virus- it attacks every organ) .

My project for you today of course is an Elmo card – who doesn’t love Elmo and his cute little face.
and yes, I did burn my fingers in the process of making these – but making 3 projects in 2 days using a glue gun, it was bound to happen!!!
The rainbow ribbon on the front just screamed that it belonged on the card and that was a recent treasure found at JoAnn Fabrics in one of their bins. No name to share but contains 2 spools of ribbon and the other is balloons for $2.50!!
ü Inside of my card I used the freebie Loads of Love from Designs on Cloud 9 strictly for scraps! I love my scraps!!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting us!!!
