I needed a card in a hurry and just fell in love with this one, at Me, My Stamps and I, so I tried to case it! It's also a Thank you for Jennifer who sent the Cuttlebug folder and new Copic last month, and for a swap. Sort of a triple purpose card. I got my swap done, made her Thank you, and got to case a card! I know it's not as spectacular as the original, but I needed to get it done fast. I should have used the new chenille in red & brown. I forgot. We need to get a dress for my daughter to wear in Santa Barbara.

We'll be out of town for my mother in-law's service this week.

If you could say a prayer now for our little Westie, Lilo, who has been under the weather for about a week with pancreatitis. She was then diagnosed with lymphoma (cancer) yesterday. She is at the Emergency Animal Hospital where they have an oncologist specialist, so we pray that she is better and that she is not suffering or in pain.

It's been sort of a crappy last several weeks -- I hope all this sadness is over soon. Sunday is my daughter's birthday so we need to have some cheer in this place.

See you all soon.
