How many days to "glow"?

A friend of mine is going through radiation therapy for breast cancer. Her husband told me I should come up with some kind of countdown so she wouldn't have to make big X's on the calendar. He said I'm crafty and made sure I didn't misunderstand it as "crappy", haha! He was kind of joking but I thought it was a great idea. I was going to see her today so I threw something together really quick late last night. She jokes and calls her radiation her time to "glow" so I ran with that pun. She has 38 treatments so I took 4 sheets of business cards and stamped them like a OSW with SU's Burst Into Bloom stamps and Gable Green/Pretty in Pink/Positively Pink/Lavendar Lace ink, Lavendar Lace marker. I also used a binder clip, misc. CS and misc. ribbon. On the back of the business cards, I printed some inspirational quotes I found online and added a few jokes, a card with her husband/sons/grandson's names on it, a half way there and you did it card. Some were serious, others were funny, like "You Glow Girl!" and little things to make her giggle. I know I could have done a million different things to make it bigger/better but I didn't have a ton of time and I think it turned out cute because of what was printed on each card.
