My First Publication with Cards...

I have been submitting my cards for years to Cards magazine and finally received an amazing e-mail a few months ago.  My first Card ever is published in the March issue of Cards Magazine... I am still excited about this.



I haven't submitted for a few months as I have been busy etc, but will be starting again today.  Not to mention my blog updating has been a bit on the back burner but I made a promise to myself to start making time for me each day.  With that said I am off to the salon.

Till tomorrow, Happy Crafting.

New addition to our family...

This week we opened up our hearts and our home to this little one...  Meet Fiona,  She is a Morkie (half Maltese and half Yorkie)














She has already filled out hearts with so much joy.  Even if she keeps us up most nights. hehe 

With all her 1 1/2lbs she loves playing and pouncing on Lola our 3 year old Min Pin/ Chihuahua.  She enjoys her toys, her crate, chewing on our hair and just cuddling up with us on the couch.  She is already spoiled like her big sister.. hehe
