You're Sweet Cupcake card

We are having wind advisories all day today and this after a tornado hit a few miles from our house on December 23rd. We had wind damage with another apple tree~ gone. My favorite classic movie is "Gone With The Wind" but this is a bit much. I think it's a good day to try to get some cards made for OWH.
I hope all of you had a wonderful and safe Christmas or Hanukkah! We had a great time with our family and almost one year old Great grandson that we saw for the first time.
 This is another love card that I did not have time to post before Christmas. I hope to improve my photography skills this coming year. Thank you for visiting my blog and enjoy the rest of your holidays.

These are so much fun and such a great way to use up scraps that you just can't throw away. I am so anxious to make more with different styles of paper.  Here is the tutorial so you can make one; Try it it's fun. Thank you for looking!

Snowman Card Sketch #98

What a terrible day this has been. I thought taking a picture of the snowman card I made yesterday would make today end better than it started. Today, someone shot a very beloved dog that belongs to my daughter and son-in-law. He is at the Emergency vets office after having surgery for a severe wound. We are praying that he will be back with us in a few days. We have acreage and I believe a hunter shot him on purpose. What a sad world it is that someone would shoot a dog just for sport. He is very badly wounded and I pray Otis will be alright. He is one of the best dogs you will ever find and this is an absolute tragedy. I am sorry for Heather and David for having to go through this. I hope this card makes you smile.
