Thank You!

*********Scroll Down for yesterday's CHA activities!

I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm crazy in love with this card. I realize that I'm not the best with my copic markers, but I do enjoy using them from time to time, especially when it fits my style. These little flowers came in a sentiment set by Hero Arts and I just can't get enough of them. I really didn't even notice them when I bought the set (my first Hero Arts set ever), but they ended up being one of my favorite thing about the set.


I also wanted to give you a little Maddie update. Maddie has done really well over the first four months we've had her. We no longer even have to put her up during the days. It's been nice. She doesn't really event chew things... that is except for this (please notice the lack of leaves):


She loves the plant. And this is what I came home to a few days ago.

And the best thing is Maddie always knows she's in trouble. When I came home to this I couldn't even find Maddie she was hidding under the bed. So cute.

Lovely card.

Is that plant toxic or not? I'm not so sure, but you should check. I giveaway a plant because was toxic, and my son was just in love with her.

Beautiful card, Courtney!!! I love the colors you chose.

I can't tell for sure what kind of plant that is from the photo, but you may want to check and see if it's toxic to Maddie, if you don't know. Here's a good site with photos of plants:

Isn't it amazing how attached we become to our dogs?
