Busy, busy, busy!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted anything since Thursday!  I seem to be so busy lately and crafting is way down on the priority list.  I had hoped to get a lot done this weekend but this happened:

We got a new dog. Last summer we had to put our 3 year old dog down as he was sick and we did everything we could for him.  The time was right for another dog so we looked at the SPCA for a rescue dog.  This guy was perfect.  Ringo is about 1 1/2 and VERY happy, friendly and good.  He is a perfect fit.  Needless to say we have been preoccupied!

I did manage to squeak out this card, after completing some Design Team projects.  I used the new Wood Necessities and some Now & Then by My Mind's Eye.  I also used a Kerri Bradford Cut File.

I am playing along with this fun sketch at Wanna Sketch:

And the color challenge at Color Q:

Awww, I'm SO happy for you! Ringo is adorable! He does look like such a sweet and happy pup!
And your card is adorable, as always! I love the sentiment. Fabulous words and I really like the mix of elements you used to build it. The map paper works so perfectly here. Love the little stars, too!
