So Cool!

Hello my crafty friends, hope your Monday is off to a great start. Mine is so so, lol, it's chilly willy here after just having unusually high temps in the mid to high 80's. Of course it could have stayed at those temps to me! But not normal for around here, so I guess I will have to suck it up and accept that winter is knocking on the door. The other things that had me "quiet" is that my husband's death anniversary was last week and I was nursing my little furbaby and taking her to the vets. Thursday after talking to my youngest son, I had her put down as she was in liver failure. She lived a nice life and lived for 11 1/2 years, not really long like some dogs, I knew her diabetes would cut off some years for her and it did. Of course it didn't make it any easier to put her down, but it had to be done. I didn't want her suffering anymore. So when they gave her the shot to relax her, I held her so she knew I was with her to the end. My youngest son was with me, so I didn't have to do it alone. Still hard, but necessary and as you can probably guess, tears were rolling down my face. Bret buried her with our two outside dogs, so now all three are together in the field. I know my little girl is in heaven with my husband as she loved farming with him and now they can once again farm together.  Sure am glad now that I have Savannah cause I wouldn't have liked coming home to no furbaby!!! Savannah is doing much better, but of course is still puppy. I walk her every morning and that really helps. But yesterday and today she wasn't a happy puppy because she missed our Pocket's girl. 

Today is my turn to share over at Cardz TV Gallery.  The Cardz TV stamp sets I used are:
Basic Borders, Just Chillin', Winter Cheer, and Let's Party. All are fabulous stamps sets and you can get yours here!!! 

Nothing to really explain about these cards as they are super CAS. But I think they are kinda' cute. 

I hope to get back on track here with commenting. I'm sorry it's been a while since I've visited you, just can't get it together and keep up with Savannah. It sucks getting old!!! I will try and get by soon, but I'm not getting my email notifications that I usually get on the blogs I follow, so be patient with me as I try to get on bloglovin to find you all! I don't know if it is my provider or if the problem lies in the feedburner where I sign up to follow blogs. All I know is that it is a pita!!!  Thank you all for stopping by and visiting with me, you always bring so much sunshine into my life!!!

Crafty hugs,

Hi Brenda. So sorry to hear about your furbaby. I know you will miss her terribly. What a tough week for you. I'm glad Bret and Savannah were there to help you through.

Two adorable CAS Christmas cards. Hope that creating them brought you some joy this week. xx

I'm so sorry you had to put your furbaby down. That's always so hard! God knew you would need Savannah! Love your snowflakes and that cute penguin! It's chilly here too but not as cold as up your way, I'm sure. Stay warm!

I'm so sorry about Pockets, Brenda, especially during an especially tough time of year for you ... keeping you in my prayers, my friend. Sounds as though Savannah is keeping you busy ... please don't worry about not visiting ... we know you're there, and that you'll be round when you can! These are both such sweet cards ... wonderfully CAS and so fun! Hugs, Anita :)

gee whiz Brenda, that's horrible news that you lost your little furbaby, but as you said - she's with Dwayne now and they're both watching over you. I'm so sorry for your loss, especially so close to the anniversary of losing your husband.
The card is cute, and perfectly appropriate for this weather. Friday I was sitting on the front porch in shorts enjoying the weather and yesterday we turned the heat on! Drastic changes here - and my old bones are not adapting very well either LOL TC and have a good week ahead. (hugs)

Darnell said...

My heart goes out to you, Brenda. It is a tough enough time being the anniversary of Dwayne's passing. I'm so sorry that you had to put Pockets down. It's good that Bret was with you and that you have Savannah to keep you company. You are so good to maintain your DT commitments. Your CASlicious cards are right up my alley!! Big hugs, sweetie!! Love you, Auntie

Oh Brenda!! I am so very sorry about your furbaby!!! I know it hurts like crazy!!
I'm approaching the one year for my Mom. November 2nd. Next week. I'm usually off on Wednesday's, but I'm working that one so I can be off to go to On Stage that weekend. I'm not sure if that will help me not to dwell on it or not. I know I'll be the best that I can be rather it is falling apart or holding it together. That's all I can promise.
Hang in there. I'm keeping you in my prayers every day. And we know those help!!!

I'm so sorry about your precious dig, Brenda. I'm glad your son could be with you when she went to sleep. I know the anniversary of your husband's passing was hard, too. Your CAS cards are so cute. God bless you.

A difficult time for you, all round, but you were strong and got through. No shame in the tears at all. And it was a hard decision to make, but now Pockets can be with her master again. The cards are delightfully cute, and I especially love the little penguin with his icy balloon. You create when you feel in the mood, ditto with commenting. Enjoy walking Savannah while you can, because soon it will be too chilly for you to be outside. Big hugs, TFS

So sorry that you were faced with this hard decision at an already difficult time, Brenda. Weren't we just lucky to have them as long as we did - Pockets had the best momma!
Now about those visits ... I'm so sorry that I've missed these last few cards - Brenda they are darling!
You take care of yourself and that darling Savannah! xx
