Sending Hugs and Prayers

My baby sister has been in the hospital twice in the last month. They are not sure what is her problem, but she is contracting sepsis and they don’t know the cause. This time her blood pressure got to an extreme low of 56/30 before they started on medication to bring it up. She is doing better, but we are still waiting to see if they can determine the cause. We are definitely sending lots of prayers.

Garden Pick Sending Prayers

When I was at Hobby Lobby recently they had this pretty Crafters Companion Grand Swirls Die on 40% off and so I decided to get it. It makes a beautiful card. I had some light gray and white patterned paper that I used behind the swirls, used silver mirror and light gray cardstock for the sentiment, and then decided to add a pop of red with some flowers from Altenew’s Garden Pick 3D Dies. Love, Love, Love this card.
