Hello & Happy Monday!
Hope everyone is doing well and had a great weekend!
I took some time off last week from stamping. Things were just busy around here!
We also adopted a dog on Saturday!
I know, I know.....I said i'd never have another dog but how can you ever say no to this cute little face?
Shawn belongs to a websight called Operation Paws for Homes and he found this sweet little dog on there last Tuesday. Something in me could not let it alone. Regina, as she was named, looked SO much like my Fluffy and there were so many signs that seemed right.
Saturday, we headed south to Virginia and met the dog. It was love at first sight and I was not leaving Virginia without her! The dog's foster mom said she was a "diamond in the rough" and such a fabulous little girl. She was right! The foster mom nicknamed her "Gigi" and we thought it fit her and decided to keep the name! This poor little girl was well taken care of from her previous owners but no one knows how she became a stray. At some point she also had puppies. So heartbreaking!
Animal Control found her in South Carolina somewhere and took her to a shelter where she received medical care and cleaned her up some. She was found dirty & very matted. She has flea bites and some skin issues right now but it looks as if things are healing. I'm concerned about her because she is terribly thin and so boney. God love her, she has such a good heart and is so loveable! Her teeth are beautiful, her eyes are clear & bright and she is housebroken. They think she is about 6 years old but we all think (even the foster mom) she is younger. She is a spunky little thing and oh so sweet! Since bringing her home Saturday evening she checked out her new surroundings, ate, slept with Shawn & I and then had a bath to help her feel better. We took her to the park for walk & also a trip to the pet store. She's an amazing dog and I just love her!
So, ok I know your all here to see my Merry Monday card so here goes!
This week is a color challenge and I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
I left my designer paper do all the talking on this!
I added my sentiment, gold pearls and some gold trimmed ribbon and called it done.
Hope you like!
