Back In The Saddle

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! Wow, I haven't posted in almost a whole month. If you read my last post then you know why I've been MIA. Here's a quick update on my Lexi.... she had her CT scan which revealed that her tumor is too big & too spread out to safely remove it. So, now we pretty much just wait for her to start having symptoms, which could be 6 months or 3 years. Although there's no way to remove the tumor, we are exploring other avenues of treatment that may be able to at least slow down its growth. We have started giving her some natural supplements & will be taking her to an acupuncturist & an energy healer. May as well try everything, right?

Anyway, onto the crafting segment of my crafting blog, lol. I made this card for a dear friend of mine & former client who is due to deliver a little baby girl any day now. She had a baby shower a couple weeks ago, which I wasn't able to attend, but I was able to get her gift to her & this is the card that went with it....
