Whew...is anyone else hot?

Wow you guys! Summer is here is central Washington! It is currently 89 degrees. Sooooo happy to have air conditioning. The house we rented when we first arrived here (6 years ago) didn't and I remember that one day it was 88 degrees in the house. Yikes! That is the day I made Todd go purchase a window air conditioner unit for the living area of the house. We just moved the futon mattress down there and slept there when it was so stinkin' hot.

I just got home from the vet with our newest dog, Mitzy. Last week she had a seizure and I had taken her in to see if there was anything we should do. The vet said not yet so I've been watching her. She did have another seizure this afternoon and when I think of it she's been having them since we got her. Not an excessive amount but still. The vet just wants to wait as long as possible before we have to put her on meds so I'll continue to watch her. Well, this morning she was limping and having a hard time putting weight on one of her paws so I made another trip to the vet with her this afternoon. Seems she has an infection and now has to have an antibiotic. Apparently the stuff tastes horrible but she is a trooper and just took it without any problems. Can you all say awwww...for me? Wanna see a cute picture of her? Okay, you twisted my arm...I'll show ya. This is what she does when she is sitting on the couch and someone comes to the door. Okay, so this picture isn't perfect...she is usually all the way up on the pillow but you get the idea. Isn't she just the cutest?

Alright, onto the Bellas. I only have 3 more to show you. I'll show you two today and then one tomorrow and then I guess I'll have to do some of my own artwork so I can show ya, huh? This first card says that Leeanna made it. All I can say is that the photo does not do it justice! The Bella is Barbella. This is fantastic designer paper, stitching, glitter, ribbon, and brads. This is just a fantastic card! The size is 5 1/2" X 6".

The second card is made with Beachabella. What a cute, fun, bright card. I love the flowers and the orange ribbon. The Hawaiian shirt charm is just the cutest but, unfortunately, the charm broke. :0( the artist on this one is Sue Jensen. She used a Cuttlebug for the background and some very yummy, sherberty looking designer paper.

I truly wish I had half the talent of these ladies. All the cards are just fantastic.

I have received one set of card for the Live-Love-Laugh-Create Prize Swap and they are cute! I think I may have spied another card on my friend's blog and they are cute, too! I think all the participants will be soooo pleased! I finished up my cards today to and I'm happy with how they came out. Isn't it nice when you are happy with your card? Oh, and one participant had a great idea for our next swap. Everyone sends in just one card and the winner receives all the cards sent in. What do you guys think of that for next time? Just a thought!

Anyway, I hope you've had a great day so far! I'll see you tomorrow!

Its sorta hot here in Michigan and I am loving it. No AC either-it was 90 yesterday but only 80 today. Had some rain a while ago. Maybe the high 40's by Monday night tho.

Anybody want some skeeters tho? DOn't like them.

Poor baby! We have a little Rat Terrier & he has seizures too - or he did - he's been on medication for several months now & no problems. Our vet told us that small dogs have a tendency for seizures. The cards are great!
