A Sad Day

We will miss our Sweet Baby Girl.
We had to put our little Razzy down today after a long illness.
We just couldn't watch her suffer anymore. 
She brought such joy to our lives for 12 years 
We will miss her sweet nuzzles, the way she tilted her head  
when we said certain words and all the Love she gave to us unconditionally .
She really was our fur baby.
Until we meet again Baby Girl, We will Love you Forever.

Love is in the Air

 Can you feel it?
 Hearts and flowers are everywhere right now.
whether its sweet children sending Valentines to their classmates
 or loved ones sharing their un-dyeing Love. 
Or friends wanting to be your Valentine. Awe yes sweet Love!
I do believe someone way back planned it just this way to beat the winter blues.

I did play just a bit with a tart tin Valentine swap with the
MAMA group. 
The above Forever and Always I made for my swap partner Bobbi Ann

and Bobbi Ann sent me this Gorgeous tin .
I love how she used the ribbon and roses with the crinkle ribbon.

Sending  all my followers 
big Hugs  this Valentines day!

Talk about falling behind!!!
Not a great way to start the New Year!!!

I have some photos to share and some Heartfelt Thanks for cards and gifts at Christmas.
Earlier this fall my sweet friend Meri Wiley had asked if anyone had a few Christmas things they could share for her upcoming class. I had sent her a little something to use. Never in a million years did I expect her to send something back. Oh my gosh she was so generous!!!
She sent this Gorgeous Collage frame with a glass deer . Stunning!

She also sent a wonderful assortment of goodies to play with, A pretty bracelet, a lovely tag and a
vintage piece of glass that I hope to be using very soon. 

Thank you so very much Meri!
