Oh my, the birthday rush in coming soon! I was printing out my November calendar and realized that I had already flubbed getting some anniversary cards in the mail soon enough. There are ten birthdays this month alone and it only gets crazier next month.

That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more

My husband and I were having a discussion about this card over lunch. I said that I don’t necessarily think it has to be a sympathy card because I think my puppy is an angel. He then asked me if I meant the same dog that was currently in on the couch with a tummy to sick to beg for cheese because he had eaten who knows what? read more
