I want to thank you all for the advice and support you gave me over my post last week regarding our cat. We made the appointment to take him in and when it came down to it we couldn’t do it. Instead we’ve been monitoring his whereabouts in the house and making sure that bedroom doors are closed and he can’t get into them if we aren’t here. I don’t know if we’ve made the right decision or not, but we’ll see how things go. He was the first animal that Roger and I adopted together. I came into the relationship with a dog and then we adopted Figaro, our loving yet naughty cat. The kids were heartbroken with our telling them that he’d have to find another place to live, and I was heartbroken thinking of what we were going to do with him. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to put a pet down, about 13 years, and she was suffering from a rare bone cancer in her skull. It’s a hard decision to make and one I can’t make lightly. So for now, I’m hoping Figaro behaves and can stay with us for a few more years. He still has some left.
Today I got to stamp. I combined the Clean and Simple Challenge of using Teal, white and another color. I chose Old Olive and then threw in some Soft Suede, so I sort of cheated on that one. I paired it up with the 2 Sketches for You sketch. I had just gotten the Sale-a-Bration set Good Neighbors and it hadn’t seen ink yet and used my Occasions Mini set Well Scripted, it’s my favorite sentiment set from the mini. I’m loving the new Clear Mount sets! They are so easy to line up.
This week you are likely to see a lot of Birthday cards. Every year I donate a basket of handstamped cards to the silent auction for Aquinas Catholic Academy. I got my cards in the box and sorted out and realized I either used or sold all of my Birthday cards over the last few months. Therefore I need to fill in a few holes of missing occasions, wrap the box up and send it off to the auction. I also have to get our class basket over too, but it weighs a ton.
Tomorrow is weigh in day, I have a Dr. appointment and hopefully after that I’ll have a chance to post. See you then!
