Well, today’s share almost didn’t happen! Yesterday, in the middle of making my card – for Halloween! – we went out to feed the horses. Our big guy – who’s 25 or so (that’s not ancient, but it’s getting up there pretty good), came in with a case of ADR (that’s scientific vet speak for Ain’t Doin’ Right). He took about 2 bites of his dinner and then began to act – wrong. It became clear pretty quickly that he was colicing. Now, when a baby colics – it’s worrisome. When a horse colics – it’s beyond worrisome. Colic can – and has! – kill a horse. And an old horse…well…let’s just say that it gets our attention really fast.
Long story short – after about 2 1/2 hours of walking, doctoring and talking to the vet (and hoping for some….poop!), we finally left him in his stall for the night. Back in the house at around 9:15pm – still no card done. But, I persevered – at least I knew what I was going to do. And – it helped me to stay awake for the 11pm welfare check on the patient!
On a brighter note – when I got home from the grocery store yesterday afternoon, a satisfyingly heavy Stampin’ Up! box was at the gate! I just love when those kinds of boxes arrive – don’t you? This was my order that I placed during the 15% off sale!! Also – on the very same day that 6 new stamp sets arrived – Publix had TWO more of the Ster-i-lite CD boxes!! Timing is everything!
So – back to the card I made. I used Sparkly Seasons and its bundled Seasonal Frame Thinlits, paired with some Happy Haunting DSP to bring you Happy Halloween wishes. Take a look-see:
