A Sad Farewell

We said goodbye this week to a treasured member of our family.  This is my oldest son's dog, Pal.  She was 14 years old.  We had to put her down due to cancer.  It was really hard, but our vet assured us that we were doing the responsible thing.  She would have suffered if we had let things go much longer.  Still it is hard to come home and not find her waiting.  I will miss her howling at the fire siren in town each day at noon and shuffling out from under the pine trees each morning as I leave.  We will miss you Pal.

TAG Challenge

The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week was TAGS.  Somewhere you had to use a tag in your artwork.  I chose this Christmas page that I did this year.  The tag has a cute little reindeer with a bitty brad in Hollyhock as a nose.  The reindeer is from the Heartfelt Christmas set and the papers are from the Jingle Collection.

I Do Miss the View

This was the view from our hotel balcony in Myrtle Beach.  I do miss it!  I do not miss the crowds and the heat though!  Now on to scrapping this trip!

Congratulations Card

Well finally here is the card I made for last weeks H2H challenge.  The challenge was to use the colors vineyard berry, blush and creme brulee together.  I used cardstock to make paper flowers with a technique my dear friend Tracey Mason taught me at convention this year.  I'm afraid my flowers aren't quite as good as hers.  I need to practice!  But I did like these colors together.  Hopefully I will be able to do the next challenge if Blogger will upload my image this time!

Myrtle Beach

Last week I spent some time in Myrtle Beach for a baseball tournament with my youngest son.  It was HOT!  Sadly his team did not win the tournament but we had a lot of fun.

So Frustrating!

Well I had great intentions of entering the H2H Challenge this week and have tried for two days to upload a photo of my card, but Blogger just won't cooperate! It will not let me upload the image. It just keeps freezing up on me. So nothing new to share. I will try again tomorrow even though the challenge will be officially over. Say a little prayer that it will work next time!
