Thankful Trees


Hello, all! Popping in with a quick card for several challenges. First off, if you have any Unity or Ippity stamps you should definitely join in with Unity's Friends With Flair weekly event.  Not only do you get to see a ton of fabulous cards but you have two chances to win a prize - one by entering and one by commenting on the other cards.  Easy!  I'm also going to enter my card in The Paper Players fall themed challenge, Wee Memories' Brads, Buttons or Bows challenge, Simon Says Stamp's button challenge and Use It Tuesday's Orange, Black or Purple challenge.  I bought those little buttons at the dollar store about 3 years ago and since then they've done nothing but look cute in their little storage drawer.  Now they finally get to look cute on a card!  :)
And just an update to let you know that the puppies that Atticus donated blood to are doing really well.  It was amazing to watch their transformation as the blood was infused.  At the start they could barely stand.  Halfway through they were looking around and reacting to what was going on in the room.  By the end we had to hold them down because they were up and about and wanting to scamper around!  A beautiful sight!  :)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI, (Old Olive)  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Trees from Bella Trees, Sentiment from Sept 2011 KOM - All Seasons) Unity Stamp Co
Ink:  (Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze) Stampin' Up
Buttons:  Craft Supply

Hi Jen, Thanks for asking about Jena. We got her from the shelter when she was a puppy. The vet thinks that she's a cocker spaniel/golden retriever mix :oD

I seem to have loads of little drawers filled with things to look at...maybe I should try using them too ;) I love these sweet buttons, and the sentiment is gorgeous, in both appearance & especially meaning.

THanks for the puppy update - even better to know how much Atti's donation helped them out. Poor little things...I'm so glad my pup is healthy.

Brandi said...

I know that I am going to end up subscribing to the KOM because of you - I love all the Unity/Ippity cards that you make.

I'm glad the puppies are doing well - has Atticus forgiven you?
