I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Halloween Greetings

Happy Friday Everyone!!

My week has been BUUUSY! Monday my husband and I decided to become foster parents to a puppy chihuahua named Lily.  What a CUTIE she is.
In fact, she is such a sweet dog that we are ALMOST thinking of adopting her, ourselves.  Well, I don't need to think about it...but I've been trying to convince hubby to.  She has been a wonderful playmate to our Gigi...

Anyway...yesterday was a sore heart day.  I had to take Lily to get spayed.  So all day long I was worried about her...and now my heart hurts for her for her pain.  But I know one person whose heart, I think, has been won over?  I don't know...what do you think?
This is hubby trying to comfort Lily as she was in pain but not eating...so I couldn't give her a pain pill.  But this morning she is doing better.  She ate some food and I was able to give her her medicine.  :)

Anyway...here is my card for Friends With Flair.  It was my card challenge with my friend Nicole.  This time I set the theme challenge and it was to be Halloween using the Spellbinder Labels #1 and Stickles.  And here it is:

So thank you for stopping by...and have a GREAT weekend.  I'll be busy...lol


  1. what a great card--love the witch! I hope you do adopt that cute K9! Hope she's feeling better!

  2. Great card! You totally "need" that chihuahua!

  3. awe poor pup in pain from surgery... you really should keep her, she looks happy with Gigi. Wonderful Unity card!

    1. Really cute card. Cute doggie, too. :)

  4. Love your layout on this card...so cute. I could never foster a dog - we'd have every one of them (which would be OK with DH but I'm the one at home with them-ha, ha!).

  5. Cute card challenge and cute puppy!!

  6. I would have a hard time giving up any foster. Lily looks like a sweetie. Okay, back to your sparkly witch....She is fantastic!

  7. Aww...that is so adorable! Your card is fantastic too...lol! I say go for the adoption...but of course, I'd say that for any dog! I have a Lily puppy too...just a tad bit bigger...mine's a Great Dane! I hope that your Lily recovers quickly!

  8. Super fun Halloween design Sheryl! And hopefully Lily will pull on more heart strings and stay in her almost-forever home. :)

  9. There's nothing worse than seeing an animal or child in pain. I hope hubby gives in on the adoption of Lily. I can tell she's a sweetie! Fun glittery design of your card.

  10. NIce witch card.
    And... I hope Lily gets better soon. Keep her. Keep her. Keep her...

  11. We're having puppy conversations in our house, too. Hubby wants one, I'm dragging my feet. Good luck! Love your card! That's a sweet witch.

  12. great card, hope she is feeling better and DH wants to keep her. I know what those conversations can be like

  13. Beautiful card! Lily is adorable! Sounds like Gigi may be gaining a sister... I hear they like company. :)
