I haven't forgotten about y'all!!

We are in Washington State visiting friends and family. We haven't been back since we left 5 years ago. I did realize I have a 'problem'... I woke up this morning dreaming about my stamps, coloring and a card layout!

Dog Gone Stamps - Sketch Challenge

It was a hard one to do... kinda. A friend of mine, Maggie, has a sweet 15 year old lab, Ms. Sarah. Well, Ms. Sarah has cancer and has lived longer than expected. Maggie has had to make the tough decision that it is time. Ms. Sarah always comes to work with Maggie (who works in the office next to the store) so she always has to come say hello to Madeline and see what crumbs she can find.

So, this is for Maggie and Ms. Sarah, as she goes to that Happy Place.

Paper: SU basic black, SU Green Galore, GP White
