Me and Dominick

I had a wonderful visit from my cousin Rhonda this past weekend. We haven't seen each other for almost 3 years. We had a great time. We always do. I haven't been making cards or scrapping much lately. I am really starting to miss it. So maybe this week sometime I will get my mojo back. And I must make some time to visit my blog friends!

Everlasting Love!

Day 112 at 365 Cards was to use the word "love" on our card. I cut "love" with the Jasmine Cricut cartridge, I also used Marvy Uchida Scallop punches, Fiskars heart punch for the butterfly, Prima Nursery Tales flower, bling from my stash, the paper is Basic Grey Stella Ruby, Graphic 45 and Brazzill Basics.
Today I became the proud owner of my daughter's 3 year old Beagle. She could no longer keep him with the baby. At first I told her that I couldn't take him because he is a barker. But her and I have been so depressed and crying non-stop just thinking about finding him a new home, I got up this morning and decided I would let him move in. She was actually bringing him over early this morning as they are leaving on a trip to New York. When she got here she had been crying, so at that point I knew I had to offer to keep him. I'm going to give it my best shot as he is the most loveable but barkable dog on earth! Wish me luck.....I do love that little guy!
