Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday night. I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far. I have a very quick post for you tonight.... I made this card using the cleanandsimplestamping fall to layout # 179. As soon as I saw this layout, I knew exactly what to use. Now, this might be a clean and simple card - but it took 5 goes to get it right - and even on this one I missed up two of the colors in the wheel progression.... At that stage I decided I could live with it... I wasn't going to... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday night. I have a very quick post for you tonight. I saw this great challenge across at cas-ualfridays. Now... who could resist that? Not me. I also knew exactly what set to use, too. I bought this GinaK set about a year ago and have only used it a couple of times.

Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday. Sorry I was MIA last night. I ended up taking Merlin to the vet after dropping Lou off at the airport. The vet decided to operate this morning and remove the stone in his bladder. I wasn't happy about surgery again so soon after the last two, but we determined that it was probably the stone that was blocking causing the blockage as it was "free floating" and that the chance of re-blockage was high. So, I had to take poor Merlin to the vet early this morning. He is now home and in a morphine... Read more →
