What You Do Today...


Good Morning!  I have a card today for a few challenges.  This uses that great Stampers Anonymous set, Shabby French.  I used the colors from The Playdate Cafe Challenge this week.  I had to substitute Cream for White though.  White was too harsh.  I also based this off Mercy's Tuesday Sketch.

My post will have to be short and sweet today.  I've been a bit preoccupied with some things here lately.

Mainly, this.........


This is Harley.  She is the newest addition to our family.  We were not planning on getting a new dog, let alone, a puppy.  Sometimes life presents you with things and you have to grab them up.  Harley is a pure bred Australian Shepard.  Our dog Molly is getting very old and our hope is that they will be good for each other.  Australian Shepards have strong personalities.  I have been working very hard to make sure she knows who is boss.  They are great family dogs, but require a LOT of attention.  I've been studying up and trying to train her.  She is very smart and does really well.  My biggest problem right now is getting her socialized with other dogs.  She is naturally prone to being the more aggressive dog.  We are working on that.  Heading to the library today for some Cesar books or something of the like.  Wish me luck!

Fantastic card, love the chandelier and the skill in which you've cut it out. The string it's hanging from is also wonderfully creative. Px
