Hello there...

Good morning!

Sorry that it's been awhile since my last post. I wish I could say that it was because of fun and exciting things but not so much. My grandma had a heart attack last week and is in the hospital. She's getting better but as you can imagine the entire family has been rallying around her so the usual schedules kind of get tossed out the window. Thankfully she should be coming home today to heal and get her strength back before possibly going in for surgery at a later date.

So this card has actually been a work in progress over the past four days or so. I colored up another of my new Greeting Farm stamps, Miss Anya Summer and matched her to some new Echo Park papers. I really love this little gal and can see so many head swapping possibilities with her. As I was putting the card together I spotted this little kitty that was left over from the Hallobean alteration that I did a couple weeks ago. He was too cute not to get on a card so I colored him up as well and now Miss Anya has a new best friend. This actually got me to thinking about how great a Miss Anya/My Guy Ian pet set(s) would be. Heck you could have one with just cats and another with a handful of different pups for Anya and Ian to walk. Wouldn't that be fantastic?! Hmmm... maybe I should run this idea by Marie... :)

Ok then, thanks for stopping by and hopefully I'll be back with something to share much sooner than this last week allowed.
