Happy Labor Day!!!!!!

Wow - it's been a while!  Hope you have something fun planned today. We'll be  hanging at the pool if the weather cooperates........

So............the BIG news is DESTINY GOT ADOPTED YESTERDAY!!!!!!  Along with another one of our CT Humane Society dogs Chi Chi.  Here's a picture (although blurry) of her new family:
When we got the call that she was going home - Frank and I hopped in the car and drove up to say goodbye. I gave the new mom my email address - so hopefully she'll keep in touch.  I will miss Destiny GREATLY!

I also have a quick card to show - this has sat on my work desk for a week and I finished it up Sunday morning for my friend Jim (even though it has flowers on it - oops)
I took the picture using my cell phone AFTER giving him the card!!
I used my new Memory Box tree/moon stamp and a PTI owl and sentiment.

I really don't love it (Sorry Jim - my next card for you will be MUCH better)

I kind of 'forced' this card because my mojo went out the window.  Hopefully it comes back soon!

Well, have a great day!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Happy Labor Day Maria and so happy for Destiny! They look like a great family plus she will have a buddy to play with. Your card is cute, perfect for a guy, flowers or not!

Glad to hear that Destiny was adopted, that must make your heart feel good.
I love the card! That tree and moon are perfect with that owl. I have that PTI set and may have to try and find that moon/tree stamp too!

So happy for Destiny! Hope the transition is smooth for her and that her new family spoils her rotten. :)

Love how the tree and moon stamp highlight that cute owl. :)

SO glad and relieved for Destiny...the family looks quite loving to me...
This card is very nice and cheerful... the flowery paper does not stand out one bit. Your friend will love it.

I'm soooo happy to hear that Destiny was adopted! What great news! And I think your birthday card for Jim is adorable. Absolutely LOVE that owl and tree image. The glossy accents on the eyes is a fabulous touch. Love the sentiment banner, too. :)

Look at the smiles on those faces!!!! Bestiny's included! That's just wonderful and hope he has a happy home.

I think your mojo is just fine! LOVE this card (and sentiment) and a great way to use that tree die too! VERY nice.

Hope you have a good day!

Hip, hip, hooray for Destiny!! Such great news. Maria I bet Jim got a "hoot" out of his card!

Looks like a great family to me! And I think your card is perfectly masculine, the flowers are more graphic then anything, and I think graphic always works for masculine.

Hooray for the adoption! If we had the space, I would totally foster, but I just know I would get too attached and soon we'd have 20 cats. :)

I think the card looks great!

Even though it has flowers I still think it is a great card for a guy. The flowers are not over whelming and it is not a fru-fru card. I love the owl and your design.
