ODBDSLC41 Inspiration challenge

Hello and Welcome to my Blog today! Yesterday we spent the day going to Rescue Shelters on a hunt for a new cat to add to our family. One place had 10 cats and I had the feeling that even if we liked them, they were NOT going to give any of them up - I think they liked them too much! The second place we went had over 50 cats to look at, and that was overwhelming! After watching the children play for about an hour, we decided to go home and think about it. The children wanted a kitten, but it is so hard to know what their personalities will be like at such a young age and I have specific wants in the personality department of a cat! So today, my husband and I may go to another animal shelter or go back and get one of the cats we saw last night! Exciting! If we get a cat, I will be sure to share pictures this coming week!

As you know - today is SATURDAY and that means it is ODBD Shining Light Challenge Day! I have only a few more weeks of being on this beloved team and then - I have a new opportunity within the ODBD Team! I am very excited about this opportunity!

Chris this is absolutely beautiful! We have a Dalmatian, who at the shelter who seemed to get along fine with the other dogs. We got her home and in the first month, she got into several nasty fights with our Border Collie and then it just stopped. He passed, but I know the Dal would not want another fur buddy! Good luck with the kitty search!

Oh, Chris~

This is so beautiful. I love the technique. I think I am forever changed...I was always fine with making just a one fold card...but now I want to see how everything is made...everywhere! LOL

This is beautiful. The flower is one of my favorites...the colors are so fabulous.

What a great challenge this will be!
