A card I made for my husband's birthday tomorrow:

Supplies used: pp - Junkitz; stamps - PTI; dies - PTI, Spellbinders; ink - Barn Door Distress Ink

An update on our Yellow Lab, Zoe - her surgery went well and we will find out the lab results next week when she goes in to have her stitches removed. I know most dogs hate going to the veterinarian's office, but not Zoe. She just loves it! Actually, she seems disappointed if we arrive at the office and she doesn't see people there waiting.

Just received a big, fat envelope from Shutterfly with our Christmas photos, so I thought I'd share a layout I just finished. I have a wonderful Canon Rebel, but need to figure out how to make my layouts look nicer on my blog. Anyway, thanks to our granddaughter's arrival last year, I have started to do more layouts. So, of course, this is Caroline Jayne's 1st Christmas layout!

Supplies: paper - Coredinations, KI Memories, Heidi Grace; dies - PTI Fillable Frames #5, Banner Builders, Spellbinders; stamps - PTI Banner Builders, Wreath For All Seasons

This card was adapted from a card I found on SCS by Ocicat. Since I didn't have her cool music-themed paper, I used what I had in my stash.

Supplies: pp - Kelly Panacci, Paper Pizazz; die - PTI; stamp - Heidi Grace; cork paper - Quickutz

Unfortunately, our sweet lab, Zoe, has to have surgery on Friday. Kinda nervous about it as she is 13 years old. Without going into the gory details, she has a tumor on the side of her mouth. Keeping our fingers crossed for Zoe Rosebud - yes, her middle name is Rosebud!!

After a bit of a blogging lull, I have a card using this week's sketch from OWH's Stars & Stamps blog.

The sketch:

and, my card:

The card will go to my son for his 27th birthday later this week.

Just finished this book:

I really enjoyed this book; it was quite a heartwarming story.

Now, I am reading I, Alex Cross by James Patterson.
