LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW! LET IS SNOW!

Don't forget about my BLOG CANDY HERE


Hello Everyone - Happy Wednesday! Just arrived home from the vet to take my dog Rusty in. Everything is so expensive. My poor puppy has a large fatty mass on his back leg. It is about the size of a extra large egg. I found out he will need surgery, so I am waiting to find out how much that will cost. WHEW! I wish the vet would do a barter? I could make him animal cards.... Think he could use 500 cards for a fair barter of the surgery and visit today? LOL I suppose not. 


Todays card uses a  stamp that is newly available at I Brake For Stamps! This stamp is from Embossing Arts and is called Holiday Squares. When you order this stamp set, you receive FOUR adorable images to create your winter and Christmas cards.  Have you joined The Brakefast Club (a fun forum for I Brake for Stamps!) yet?

Rusty is so beautiful and I hope he makes out okay with the surgery, poor guy. We used to have a golden that looked just like him, my little buddy Charlie. My favorite dogs ever!

Shelley said...

Beautiful card. Rusty should come through the surgery fine, I just went through the same thing with my dog. Whew, the healing can be exhausting tho'. Poor older dogs are more expensive than kids!

Oh poor Rusty, he is such a sweetie too, hope he isn't in pain.
Praying it isn't to steep to get him in quickly.

Dawn said...

Forgot to say Thanks for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday this week. I was so worried about Rusty

Sally said...

Rusty is beautiful. I sure hope everything works out for him. You never know unless you ask your vet! Talk to him about reminder post cards for the dog's booster injections and heart worm reminders. I'm sure with your talent you could show him something more stunning than what he is using now. Me...I'm all about barter. LOL...Keep us posted. oops almost forgot. Great card too!

Cheryl said...

I hope everything goes well with Rusty. He is beautiful. We just went through this with one of our dogs (although she had one in her side and several other tumors on her ears and face) and she pulled through just fine.


As always, I love your card. The sparkle is gorgeous.
