Birthday Card - Have A Stinkin' Great Day!

My brother has sort of a strange sense of humor, so I thought he'd enjoy this card for his birthday - at least hope it gives him a smile.  He owns a large labrador retriever - and if you know anything about retrievers, you know they always seem to get their nose under a skunk...

I used Camping Critters Cartridge and cut the skunk out at 3".  My granddaughter Lexi added the two little tree brads (from

Creative Sisters Birthday

My wonderful Creative Sister, Linda had a birthday yesterday!  I'm not going to say the NUMBER of this birthday - but it's a significant one.  My sister got me started on this paper crafting journey - and it's truly something we are both very passionate about.  We are so blessed to have so many friends who share this passion - and a community where we can learn and grow from each other.

Please join with me in wishing my sister a very happy birthday!  To honor this most special day - I will pick at random - one winner from everyone who leaves a comment for her birthday!  The prize will be a surprise!

MIA - Lots going on!

This is a picture of my Yorky "Herd"  Rascal, 7, is my standard colored  male.  Little biscuit with her first top knot is my 6 month old female.  Trixie with the floppy ears and big brown eyes is my 3 year old 'shorky' (shitzu/yorky mix) who just had the 5 adorable pups.  They all look like Rascal, except for one little female who weight 2.5 ounces right now.
Summer has finally arrived in Maine - and has it gotten crazy busy.  The gardens are in and being visited by deer - so we are replanting and hoping there will be something to can and freeze for winter.  My beautiful Trixie, Shorky, had 5 new babies last week, and we are enjoying all the new life in the house.  My dear friend and breeder of yorkies, gave me a new little girl.  A golden yorky named, Baby Bear.  That brings the grand total of dogs to 4 in our house.

On top of gardens and dogs - I'm still watching my two grandest daughters most days.  They are Lexi who is 4 and Anna who will be 1 in a week.  I've had some health issues and have been to a number of doctors, and think we are getting close to a diagnosis and a plan of action. 

With all this going on, I haven't done much crafting.  I appologize for being absent - but will get my life under control soon!   Hope everyone is having a great summer.  Would love to hear what you are all doing!!!  Leave me a comment and tell me how you are spending your summer!
