Winter Wishes

Monday, Monday
Not such a good day for us.  Poor Schmitzy is scheduled to have exploratory surgery on Friday to find out why he continues to vomit most everyday for the last month.  We've tried several medications, changed his dry food, put him on only canned food, and we are at wits end.  He's lost about 7 pounds - he only weighs 27 pounds now, which is 1 pound less than when he was found wandering the streets this past summer, before we fattened him up. 
On to happier things.  I have a card using the sketch over at The Sweet Stop.
I used a Sizzix die to cut the tag and a Sizzix embossing folder for the card top.  The images are from Taylored Expressions, colored with Copics and the snowflakes are topped with Swarovski crystals.  The sentiment, also TE, was cut out with MFT Fishtail dies and a strip of rhinestones added beneath for bling.  A bit of sparkly ribbon was added to the tag top.  This came together pretty quickly!!!
I am also entering the following challenges:
Come and Get It - Anything Christmas
Quirky Crafts - Last Minute Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas Time
Thanks for stopping by!  I need to go give Schmitz a spoonful of food.
