hello again!!

Hi all. It has been a really long time since I blogged.
I have been creating still, just not blogging it. There has not been a whole lot going on. My husband is working the never ending 13 hour shifts 7 days a week. poor guy. he has to cover for a lame sicko that called in sick for the next 8 weeks. I don't get it, but that is a whole different issue. We have lost 2 more friends since I last posted. A 34 year old mother of 1 died of breast cancer, and 41 year old friend of ours with 3 young children died of a brain aneurysm.
We also had to put our beloved dog Cedric to sleep. That just breaks my heart, still. it has been 32 days now, and i still miss him so bad.

We have 2 new members in our family now. Maxwell and Sulley. Max is the black one and Sulley is the one with spots. They are catahoula Leopard dogs. We found them from a rescue shelter in York NE. We are having so much fun with them. We have had them for about 10 days, and they are learning very quickly.

I hope to come back later tonight with a few cards I have made lately. See you later!

I was tagged

It has been a strange and weird week .
A friend of ours was killed by a train. He worked for the UP railroad and stepped off his train. He was instantly killed by an oncoming train on the next track. He was 41 and had a wife and 2 daughters.
Our Dog Ceddy was apparently bit, by something last night. He went out and when he came back in he was all bloody and a bunch of fur missing. I wont post the pic. I will spare ya. Dave took him to the vet this morning and they had to shave his back by his tail where it happened. He looks pretty goofy. He is now on steroids and drinking like crazy!
My Internet has been out a lot this week. It comes back then off again. It has been pretty steady the last day and a half though so that is good.

My challenge tag came from my good Friend Jacquie! It is to go tho the 6th folder in your pic file and share the 6th pic in that folder. well here is mine. It is my children, Taylor and Brad at age 3and 4. This was taken by the picture people it is one of my favorite portraits of them.

martini break

I am not a drinker, I don't even know what a martini is made of. I do think this bella is super cute though!! lol
She is colored with copic markers and I used BG papers. I have to apologize, I can't remember where the sketch came from.
I have been working on some layouts lately, I will be posting some of them this week. I have been getting pics made that are not just 4x6 and am scrapping them. I have 3 to share with you this week.
Also on another note, my counter quit working, I noticed a lot of others counters not working also. I signed up for a new one and am starting over with my count. have a great night!
