My dear, little grandniece, Lily Grace, underwent heart surgery this week.  It went well and she’s recovering like a champ (the gusto of a typical toddler).  I’m sending her a little gift along with this playful owl card (3 3/4″ square)!

  1. Mary, I’m sorry I missed your original post about little Lily Grace. It is amazing what medical strides have been made over the years. I had open heart surgery in 1960 for several holes between my ventricles from birth. Since then (at age 11) I have been in High School gymnastics, baseball, and basketball, completed a BS and MA, taught school for 23 years, been married for 43 years, have two beautiful daughters, and now 4 beautiful grandchildren. Life is good. Lily Grace has a wonderful life ahead of her!

  2. thank you for sharing about Lily Grace. My niece at 2 yrs old had a similar open heart surgery, and now, at 4 yrs. old she is the strongest, brightest, happiest little girl around.

  3. Hello Mary, Sorry to hear about the news just got the message. Now I see she is doing a lot better. My prays are with her and her family. As I can see she is doing batter and I know in my heart she will be fine. Please keep us posted and hope all goes well.
    I wish you all the best for Lily Grace.

  4. Lily Grace will love this card, Mary. Our prayers are with her and here family. My niece had open heart surgery when she was 2 years old, and will she will be 20 on the 5th of May.
    Thank you for sharing, Mary.

  5. I love this card and the colors used!! The owl is one of my favorite punches and this gives me a totally new card idea for it. Hope Lily Grace is doing well. What a beautiful name.
