Even though a posted an SAS4Kids card on Saturday, it seems like forever since I've blogged. That SAS4Kids card was done a while ago... and I've not spent much time in the menopause room lately.
Miles came to us from a local shelter 12 years ago... and was a beloved member of our family. And, while this was a heart-wrenching decision, it was absolutely the right decision for him. So, why am I tearing up just looking at this pic?
Our broken hearts came home to an eerily quiet house filled with his things. As we started to collect some of his things for safe keeping -- things like that chewed-off-ear sock monkey of his -- an atypically emotional hubby turned to me and said, "You know it's Clear the Shelter Day"... to which I replied, "I was thinking the same thing. But, we can't, can we?"
We went... and didn't find our next furever friend, but shockingly found ourselves wanting to open up our home to another rescue pup. After reaching out to several rescues, a little one wiggled his way into our hearts.... and Little Brodie is arriving today!!! Look for a pic or two or three here tomorrow. :)
So, I finally found the mojo to finish a My Favorite Things sketch-inspired card that had been started nearly a week ago.
I'm also going to share this at the Cards in Envy Penny for Your Thoughts Challenge. It's been way too long since I've played over there.
My apologies for not making any comments this past week. I hope to be visiting some blogs, including the blogs of all of you who have played along with us at Words 2 Craft By, these next few days.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! Stay tuned for pics of our new fur baby!!!!
