RS #132 & CC ~ I'm Here for You!

Hi there! So much happening these past few days. One of my hubby's sisters had back surgery and another of his sisters will have back surgery in a couple of days! My brother had to have his family dog of 15 years put down. Poor little thing. They new she had a couple of teeth that were bothering her and needed tending to. But once they got to the vet last week, it was discovered she had cancer of the tongue as well. The vet told them they really had no choice, a dog can not live without their tongue. I think the card I'm sharing today would be suitable for any of the three of them.  



I designed this one following the newest sketch from Retro Sketches and will enter it at the Catered Crop as well, they're having a good medicine challenge. I just adore this little lady by Stamping Bella and haven't used her in quite some time. I'm so happy with the way my coloring turned out today! Sometimes getting the skin just right is difficult and the details in her snazzy little boots could make a girl go cross eyed!


I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Ours wasn't a total downer. Hubby went to a nearby airport for a small air show and got some nifty photos despite the drizzle on Saturday. And yesterday our son and daughter-in-law bought the mommy to be a new car! Baby girl Elton will have a new chariot to ride around in!!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~Lisa

So sad--still miss my Keesha even with puppy Fritz here. Hope the surgeries go well & give them relief. Such a sweet card--wonderful use of the sketch, Lisa! I wouldn't have known how to use that gorgeous paper, but it's perfect as the background for that cutie!

Ohh my goodness, Lisa! Prayers for your family...how terrible! I hope Hubby's sisters do well and I'm so sorry about the poor little fur-baby...how sad!!

Your card turned out FAB and yes, I feel your pain on coloring till your cross-eyed, but she turned out perfectly!

Ah, yes, a new car for the new family! We did the same thing shortly after Haley was born, 16 years ago. Have had a few more cars since!

I LOVE this floral paper you used. So very cool!

Lisa, your card is perfect for any of the occasions you mentioned (so sorry about them), and your coloring is amazing. I'm in awe! Fun that your DH got some good pics at the air show, and how fun for the mom-to-be to get some new wheels! I remember when we bought our minivan (needed to fit 3 car seats in one vehicle so my Altima wasn't cutting it anymore)...I told my DH that the next car I bought would be a two-seater -- for me and my purse! Needless to say, I'm still driving that minivan...
