Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. I've been so consumed with taking care of Lexi that it's hard to focus on anything else. It turns out she is in kidney failure now, in addition to the liver tumor. It wasn't just an infection, like we had hoped it would be. For the most part she is in good spirits, so we just take it day by day & treasure every moment with her.

I have made numerous cards over the past few months, but have just never gotten around to posting most of them. So I'm going to start with this one....
