Woo Hoo! It's Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I've been waiting it seems like forever for this day to come. This has been the longest week.

Wednesday I thought that my poor doggie was limping but she really did not walk to much for me to notice. She is a very "in"active dog. But yesterday we noticed that she was hurting. Her left from leg was extremely swollen. We took her in to the vet and found out that she has a very bad case of arthritis. For years we've known that her back end was not too well, she's been on joint medicine for a long time. But it seems like with the steroids that she was on for her ear and the allergies made her gain over 5 pounds and that did not help. She's been using her front end to take the weight off of the back end and she's irritated it and caused the arthritis to get worse. So long story short, she needs to get rid of some of the weight and she she will be on arthritis medication for the rest of her life. I had a feeling one day this would happen, but I just did not think it would be so soon.

Ok, enough of the sad stuff. On to some fun. Betty is due to be here soon so this won't be long, promise!

On one of her other visits Betty had brought me some stamped images that she had and she thought that I'd like them. So being bored with my stuff, I pulled them out. I made a few Christmas cards yesterday.

I do apologize for the poor picture, I guess I was in a hurry yesterday and the picture is a little blurry. This card I made with the Wreathabella stamp. The base card is Garden Green and I layered it with Real Red and DP from SU! Ski Slope collection. I colored her in with my SU! pens and watercolors. I sponged Garden Green ink around that panel before layering it on to Garden Green cs. I added a length of ribbon to two of the cards, the other two I didn't. The Real Red panel cs was run thru the cuttlebug and I added two white eyelets to break up the color a little bit.

I think I'm happy with the end results. Today Betty, Mom and I are going to try to make some card organizers. Let's see how those turn out! I hope to post pictures tomorrow!!! Hubby will be deer hunting (the season opens tomorrow) and I should get in some computer time Ü

If for some reason I don't get back here ~ Have a great day!!
