Make a Wish

Well it has been a trying few days (well since Saturday afternoon) we have had a very sick dog I won't go into details, but luckily we were finally able to get him into the vet today becauseI had thought that he wasn't going to be alive this morning when I got up.  We were using a syringe to squirt water mixed with elecrolytes into him every 20 minutes last night.  Anyhow he finally got to see a vet, and $1600 later he has had surgery, had a small bouncy ball removed from his intestine and is apparently recovering at the vets.  Poor dog was apparently in a lot of pain too but didn't show it.  Hopefully we can bring him home tomorrow.  Definitely a trying time in our house.

Anyhow, I decided to go play in my craft room tonight.   I used this inspiration from Cupcake Inspiration:

Which was similiar to the Jay Gee's Nook Challenge:

I used the sketch from My Favorite Things:

I pulled out  my Ever After paper by Pebbles along with one of the a la Modes stamps from My Favorite things. The small tag is from Pretty Little Studio, the sticker is from SRM and the twine is from The Twinery.  The cake has been mounted on foam dots for dimension.

Super duper cute card, Laurel.

I am so sorry to hear about the trying time your family has had, including your sweet pooch. I hope you all get some rest and your dog recovers quickly. And stays away from eating stuff that causes such issues!

Brenda said...

Pretty!! It sound like a trying time, and I am so glad your pooch is okay!

Sooooo sorry to hear about the pup! A bouncy ball,of all things! Sure hope he recovers quickly now and hope your pocketbook recovers, too. I just spent more than that at the car dealership this morning, so I'm in a bit of shock. Too bad money doesn't really grow on trees. :)
Your card is adorable! I love those pretty papers and colors. Anything with polka dots is sure to make me smile. Love that image, too, and what a fun banner. Totally sweet and fun!

Geez, your poor fur baby, I hope he's feeling better. Now I'm thinking about finding all the little balls around here and tossing them.
your card is fab, I love the a la modes, especially this one.
thanks for playing with us at CIC.

Oh WOW, I didn't even notice the name of the blog before I left the above comment.
Well hey Laurel, long time, remember me from S2G. We just adopted a dog today. he's a lot of fun. Again, I hope you baby is doing better. I know you love him and it's really hard to see them sick.
