Bad News Good News Kind of Day

I guess I will start with the Good news first, and actually it is fantastic news!!!  As of today I am a new member of Crissy Armstrong's Sundays with Crissy design team.  I am so excited and honored to be a part of this wonderful team.  Crissy designs both rubber and digital stamps for Whimsy Stamps, Wag's N Whiskers, Kraftin Kimmie, Squigglefly and High Hopes Stamps, and I love her work, so I know that it is going to be a lot of fun!!  Today is the start of a new challenge - the theme is K.I.S.S. - Keep it Simple Stamper!!
Now it's your turn to show us your K.I.S.S. cards!!
There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted
You have until the end of August to link your finished project, so go to Sarah's post HERE, find the blue Linky button and click on that to add you project.

Okay, now for the bad, and hopefully I will make it through this post without totally breaking down.  It is with heavy heart and many tears that I share the news that my beautiful, loving, gentle soul Indie, has left my life.  She was my guard dog and cuddlier, and will be greatly missed.  Back in May she survived a spontaneous pneumothorax, but there was no guarantee that she would not have another episode.  Unfortunately, yesterday things took a turn for the worse, and sadly we had to let her go ( thankfully my daughter was here to hold on to me ).  I will miss her hiding under my desk during thunderstorms,  her gentleness and love, and her funny way of sleeping.  I will leave you all with a couple of photos of my big baby girl.



  1. Shari,

    I am sorry to hear about Indie. She was a truely special girl who always made me laugh with how she sat on that couch while we were crafting. Let me know if you need anything.

    Congrats on your new design team spot. You are fabulous at what you do so I am happy you get to share your talent with others.

    congrats on your good news though.
    Hugs Jacee
