Keep Swimming

Some more stamps and papers came out to support Katie in her fight against stage IV stomach cancer.  See panel on my side bar for more information.  Unfortunately, with my husband having cancer and being in the hospital recently, I know it takes a toll on the entire family.  I wish her, and her family the best and send my thoughts and prayers her way.  I made the following card using one of the new stamps and papers.
