Popcorn The Bear

Hi Everyone!! Well the excitement is building around here..Chiy graduates on Friday, Cordell's last day is next Tuesday and we leave for vacation on Saturday the 11Th...WOW!!!! I have started packing and writing my packing list..I'm all about lists..I have to write everything down then cross them off as I pack them..It makes it so much easier that way..that way the last few days are getting the last of the things we need and that part being stress free...did I tell you guys how I hate flying?? I HATE it!! so that's what stresses me out, nothing else but that...we always figured if I forgot something we can just buy it wherever we are at but flying NOPE! it sucks! O boy! I'll forget about it right now because now my hands are getting clammy :)
I just made this card this morning :) ...I have had this image for two years but they are humongous! so I was always wary of using them, well I finally cut them and I can't believe I waited this long! To cute!! Love it! The image is from Crafter's Companion and this is Popcorn The Bear (Party Time) ..the DP is from Basic Grey (Lauderdale) ...I hope you like it :) ..I had fun picking colors...Have a great day!
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!

R.I.P..Hinges :(

Hi Everyone! I know I said it would be rough for awhile with my daughter's senior year but I never would have imagined losing 4 of our beloved pets within 1 year...and for Tim and I our animals are a part of us, so this is so devastating..I shared on FB what happened but in blog world I didn't so today I will tell you that on Tuesday my daughter ran over our 16year old blind cat..they both did not see each other, Chiy was hysterical, distraught...it was bad :( ...Our poor cat died during the night at the animal hospital, dct couldn't save her...it's been all around tough times..Can I say I can't wait for vacation..I want to bury my head in the sand so bad...Chiy left for Grad Trip the day after Hinges died..I was worried she wouldn't have a good time but she pulled through and we couldn't tell her enough it was an accident...Plain and simple..accident ..could have happened to me or Tim..I hope she will heal.....I will be making a card tonight..I need a break, so I'm taking time to have fun, so yes tomorrow I will for sure be posting..thank you for sticking with me........
Last night Tim and I took Rocks for a walk..Isn't he the sweetest.....
Have a great Friday!
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!

My Weird Dog and It's Hobo Time

Hi Everyone!!!! My dog is so weird...Here's my Friday Funny..I did not pose him he jumped into the flower pot..I have know clue why LOL!!! But he sat there for a few minutes...His facial expressions are so freakin funny...Love this dog :) ...
I made this card for my dad, it's his Birthday today! and since I'm Mexican..he is too hehe :) so I made a brown boy..
..Chiy thought it was hilarious but hey I think I captured the colors I needed to make him Mexican :) ..and since they lived with me for a year he always said he's homeless (jokingly) :).. so I thought the Hobo image from TGF was fitting..This new DP is from Jillibean Soup (Spotted Owl Soup) ..I did make this card sort of boyish on purpose..He's 62 and I thought it would be a fun instead of a traditional masculine card .....I kept it really simple, so it's not completely like the sketch from The Sweet Stop but I like it :) ..Have a awesome weekend!!! I will be back tomorrow
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
