New Friends

Hello, long week, so far!  Monday night at dinner time, the blog dog became suddenly disoriented and unable to stand up.  She had just been outside to greet Rick when he got home from work and was fine.  We quickly called the Vet, which is right around the corner from our home.  The good news is, it is a condition that is like Vertigo in humans that affects Senior dogs.  It comes on instantly and she had all the classic symptoms.  Two days out, she is improving and returning to herself, but some scary moments at times.  Poor  Keeley girl.  We are still carrying her in and out as the stairs she can't do yet.  Hoping for a full recovery in 7-10 days.  In the process of carrying her in and out, my back is bothering me, so we have been having some quiet time together the past two days!

Just a reminder that the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge for March is at the midway point.  Plenty of time to submit a card.  This month's challenge is a beautiful sketch by Ingrid, and we are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy.

New Friends....a rubber stamp by Northwoods Rubber Stamps.

Colored this darling image with Copics and watercolored the background.  Flowers by Prima.  Sentiment is a stick on by K and Company.  The papers are DCWV.  Martha Stewart border punch.

Take a look at the samples by the design team and the sketch at the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge  site.  Then, join the fun and submit a card using the sketch and an animal as the focal point of your card/project!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later..............

Beautiful card, very springy and we do need that right now in our area too. Today was beautiful, but I hear we are getting snow over the weekend.
Sorry to hear about your poor furbaby, hope she is up and about very soon.

Another stunning card. Another superbly colored cute image. Love the flowers and bow.
Hope Keeley will be 100% well soon. It's so hard to see them ill, just like one of our kids.
