I have a sick puppy tonight.  Geena Bea had her annual check-up and vaccinations on Tuesday and by Wednesday am, she was not feeling herself.  We thought she was just tired from the busy day before, but when she didn't bark at stuff she normally barks at, we got a little more worried.  Then the vomiting started during the night.  She couldn't keep breakfast or dinner down today.  So we are going to back to the vet tomorrow.  She is curled up on a towel on the couch right now.  She looks so pitiful - she's all of 12 pounds, most of it muscle, since she is normally quite the athlete.  We cancelled our private lesson for tomorrow and hope we can get one in before our trial next weekend in Tennessee.  Gastroenteritis is no fun!!!
I have a fall card for you tonight, using a fun sketch from Feeling Sketchy.
The stamp is from Stampendous, stamped with Memento Black Onyx twice.  I colored the leaves and acorn,  fussy cut them , & popped them up with 3M tape.  The image is cut out with a nestie, as is the Basic Grey paper circle, which reminds me of a summer moon.  CS is DCWV.  I added some dyed twine for texture.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Paperminutes - Autumn
The Paper Shelter - Fall Colors
Bearly-Mine - Fall Colors
Ribbon Carousel - Fall into Fall
Thanks for stopping by!
