Eat Cake Graphics - "To The World........

you might be one person. But to one person, you just might be the world".   I love this sentiment - so of course I had to get it with my last order from Eat Cake Graphics.  It also helps that there is a dog in the image!!!  And as someone who tries to do her part in animal rescue, time and one animal, rescuers are the world.

I once again used my prisma pencils to color in the image and used my new DCWV "Green Stack" paper pack I got in FL while visiting my parents.  It's got a bunch of fun papers in there - so you'll be seeing a lot more of it!!

This sentiment has truly come to life in the past week.  There's been a rescue going on in our lives and without further delay...........may I introduce "Sweet Pea"
Sweet Pea is the newest family member.  She's had a bad run of luck the past few months.  Surrendered to the shelter when her owner (eh-hem)..had to go to "college" as we call it.  She did not show well in the kennel at all and her stress level was elevated.  She did actually find a home, but was returned for a bite, then a whole mess of stuff went on, and she was very close to never getting out of the shelter.  We decided to be Sweet Pea's "world."  So after doing a whole bunch of introductions with Nolie and Buddy.......she officially joined the family this past Saturday.

And as wonderful as the adoption of is Sweet Pea, it doesn't come without drama.  After getting her home and bringing her in the backyard........she decided to take a leap onto a 2 1/2' wall and blew out the ACL in her knee.  (FIVE MINUTES.......FIVE MINUTES is all it took for her to get injured!!!).

She is scheduled for surgery next Tuesday and then will have 6 weeks to rehabilitate.  So, obviously not what we had bargained for when we decided to 'save' her, but it comes with the territory and thankfully my husband has a HUGE HUGE heart (even though he says he's not a dog person).

Welcome to the dog house, Sweet Pea!!!

Thanks for your visit!
