Hang in there.....

Today, I've created a card for my cousin's one year old son, Grady. He's been suffering from a sinus infection for several weeks (or so they thought), that ended up affecting one of his eyes, causing it to swell and turn bloody. After some testing, and more tests to be run this week, the doctors are still unclear as to what his problem really is. He's got a tumor behind his eye that will be biopsied this week, and he'll also have a bone marrow scan. I just feel horrible for the little guy. He's such a cutie, and has such a good attitude all the time. Please, find it in your heart to say a prayer for little Grady, we'd really appreciate it.
In the meantime, here is a card I'm sending him:
This cute little monkey fits Grady's personality, all adorable like him. This card uses the sketch from the Stamping 411 site. I turned it on it's side, and opted for buttons instead of a ribbon since my card was for a boy. The background patterned paper is from the Sweet Pea Paper pack. There are so many awesome papers in this pack of paper, and it truly is a steal!
I hand wrote the sentiment. Wish I had a stamp that said that..... The leaves/branches are from the Two Step Bird punch. I used a two way glue pen to glue them down. The branch that the monkey hangs from, I didn't glue the center down, so that I could hang the monkey. The body of the monkey is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by, and please pray for Grady!

Hopefully everything goes okay for Grady!!
