Tis the Season

Good evening one and all!
 I am here with GREAT news about Buster Posey (the schnauzer). 
Heartworm negative!  He does have a bad skin infection and his right hip hurts him alot, so he has antibiotics and pain meds.  Surprisingly, he is a lot younger than the groomer and my husband thought.  The vet thinks he is about 5-6 years old.  I think it is wonderful because we will be able to provide him with a quality life for a long time.  He is such a sweet boy.   When I picked him up at the vet's office this afternoon, he jumped up on me for the first time and showed excitement to see me.  We are a family now!

Okay, on to today's card.  I used the sketch at Always Playing With Paper

Stamps are from 2 different JustRite sets.  I punched the center out with 1.25" punch and popped it up with 3M tape.   I used Nesties Labels 13 to cut out the ornate part and decorated it with pearls.  DP is basic grey and cs is dcwv.  Ribbon is from my stash.

I will be entering in these additional challenges:
Holly Jolly Christmas - die cuts and punches
ABC Christmas - L is for lyrics (tis the season by Mary Mary)

Thanks for letting me ramble about Buster and thanks for stopping by!
