Walking the Dog

Hello.  My kids have returned home from Disney World, tired and broke.  Megan told me it's very easy to spend all your money there, very quickly (YOU THINK!!).  They are tired, but had a great time.  Rick is on vacation for the next two weeks.  Not going away, but plan on doing some things with friends and around the house.  I haven't mentioned anything about it, but if you follow my blog you know Rick had rotater cuff surgery last year for a torn cuff and was off work for 8 months, went through a lot of rehab treatments, well the surgery failed and the cuff is torn again.  He is going to have surgery again ( a new doctor) and will have the same rehab time again.  So many people have told us since this happened that they know someone that has had this surgery and have had to have it again.  OH YUCK!

Today's card is a digital image by Phindy's Place.  This furry pup reminded me of the blog dog, kinda and I could so see us shielding the dog with the umbrella and us getting wet!!  They have a challenge here each Friday. This week (week 13) they are asking you to "do some embossing".

  I printed my image on card stock and immediately dipped it in clear embossing powder and heated it to emboss the image.  I also used the large dots embossing folder and a border embossing folder for the center panel.  The rain and puddle was Stickled with Star Dust.  Flowers were pulled from a silk bunch I bought at the craft store.  Papers are from Basic Gray, Origins.  I used a Stampin Up punch to make the side straps and used a brad and a sequin on the end.  The sentiment is by Penny Black.  The side decorations around the sentiment is a corner punch by Paper Shapers.

Hope you have a great Sunday.  We're going to finally install some patio lights we have had since I got them on clearance last year!!  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later................
