SFYTT October & FTL162 - Happy Thanksgiving


I was just too tired last night to write this post up AND I hadn't edited my pictures.......so this is a late blog post for me - but........I'm done with my morning bootcamp, showered and ready to start my day!

Here are two cards I made for two different challenges, using the same Memory Box image.  First up is the Sketch For You To Try October card:

I went back to my DCWV Autumn paper pack and a Studio G sentiment.

Here's the sketch:

And, card number two is for the Clean and Simple FTL #162 sketch:
I really like using the non-traditional teal blue paper along with the fall colors. I think it give the card and extra pop!!!

Both cards are colored with my prisma pencils.

Here's the FTL #162 sketch - if you want to play along!!


So....if you're still hanging in with this post..........I have some not-so good news........Our Ms. Lily Pumpkin Pie has been diagnosed with cancer.  Sadly, it's in in her spleen and her liver.  She's 9 years old and we've decided not to go the chemo route for her.  She's been on an anti-inflammatory for a few days and is feeling quite perky.  We've been given a short time frame by the doggy oncologist.....but since we didn't find out the 'exact' cancer she has........we really don't know how much time we have with her - but we will enjoy each and every day together and make sure she's happy.

Sorry to end this post on a down note :(



Thanks for your visit!

Ah, Maria, my heart is just breaking for you guys right now. So sad about Lily but hopefully y'all can keep her comfortable and somewhat pain free in these last days.
Your cards are just beautiful as always! Like the way you distressed on the first one and used that single leaf on the second one. Very nice.
Sending you and Lily very special hugs today!

Maria, I am so sorry to hear about Ms Lily, Lucky and I are sending big hugs to you guys. Give her some extra belly rubs for us. Your cards are beautiful, love the layout and the colors on both. Especially the touch of sparkle on the first one.
