Today has been kind of a blah day. I realized that after entering the Artisan Award for the 3rd year in a row that I didn’t win – yet again. I figured that this was my last year entering because I’ve come to realize that my style is not necessarily the same as Stampin’ Up!’s style. That’s okay because starting tomorrow there is going to be an Almost Artisan blog tour starting. Over the next 10 days fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who entered but didn’t receive that “important” phone call are sharing projects that they put a lot of time into making. I’ll also have mine to share with you.
This is a card I made a while back as a sample. If you are a Demonstrator you’ve probably seen it under the Color Renovation samples on the Demonstrator Website. I used Define Your Life, Medallion and All Holidays for this one. This card uses the new Early Espresso color along with Kraft, Olive Olive and Bashful Blue.
We also had to make a difficult decision about our dog Sophie. The vet said the only thing he can’t say is that the tumor is going to shrink. They also found a tumor on the top of her head that I didn’t know about. We are giving the kids until Wednesday to stay goodbye to her. I don’t know if we are making the right decision, but I don’t want them to see her suffer. We also found out that she’s lost 7 lbs since the vet last saw her and she is not on a diet. They wouldn’t know why unless they did blood work, but we don’t think it’s right putting her through all of that at her age. I know those of you with pets will understand our predicament. It’s not an easy decision to make and with the rapid growth in the past few weeks we don’t know how it will continue to grow.
Well we are off to T-ball practice for Evan, that is if it’s not thundering by the time we get there.
