Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone
and Thank You for stopping by. Tonight I made a Sympathy Card for my mom and stepdad. They had to put their dog to sleep a couple of weeks ago. Her name was Candy she was old and blind, she would have accidents in the house. I was at work when my sister called me to tell me they were going to put her to sleep. I cried it broke my heart knowing they were going to put her to sleep even though it probably was for the best. She was a good dog and
Here is the card I made for them I included a picture of her. I used my Xyron machine to make it a magnet for them.

Inside the card I included a poem of Rainbow Ridge, this poem brings tears to my eyes when I read it.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Gypsy Surprise

Hello Everyone
Hope all is well with you. I am enjoying the weekend the snow is almost gone. It was so pretty I enjoyed it.
I wanted to share a little something with all of you. I had a little secret that I kept for a couple of weeks, but now I can share it with you. My friend Jammie who is a best and dear friend to me. She is also a co-worker and we share a office together. I know she has wanted a Gypsy, so I ordered her one thru It seem like it tooks weeks for the Gypsy to be delivered. Of course the weather did not help any. Well the Gypsy was delivered yesterday evening.

I was so excited because I knew she wanted one and I know this would make her day. I made a gift tag for the bag

this is the front side and let me show you the back

I took the gypsy over to her house this afternoon and here are pictures of her opening her SURPRRISE

Needless to say she was so surprised and excited. I could have gave it to her on Monday when we were at work but this way she will be able to play with it over the weekend.

Happy Birthday Layout

Hi Yall, how is everyone, so glad this week is almost over, I am ready for the weekend. My Mother in Law had asked me back in May to do a scrapbook of my Father in Law birthday.  He turned 70 and is still running his company.  I think the scrapbook album was about 14  pages.  I had to get this album done before Christmas, I had it done but forgot to put it with the present we were taking over to there house. Well he got his album this week a little late but he liked it. 
I will post some of the layouts,  I used a variety of cartridges along with my Imagine and porder punches.
