Well, this is me every time I have to leave CA after visiting my family. I will have to send this card to Gabby to let her know I miss her. It was so heart-wrenching saying good-bye. As if it wasn’t hard enough the night before we left (thinking she would still be asleep in the morning when we left) we had to say good-bye all over again because she sauntered out of the bedroom with her cute little princess nightgown on, rubbing her eyes before we left for the airport. I was grateful to get one more hug & kiss from her, though! Then, as we drove away – my sister brought her & our nephew onto the front porch to wave good-bye and I just bawled like a baby!
I used the Beary Special set & accessories set for my card, as well as the April Key ingredients subscription from Taylored Expressions. I just adore the sweet patterns and had the idea to paper-piece the sad-eyed puppy when I made my paper dolls a few weeks ago. Remember, a portion of the sale of each of the sets will be donated to Sick Kids (A Children’s Hospital in Canada)-isn’t that great??
I wanted to let you know Taylored Expressions is having a MOVING Sale (click for more details) some stuff is discount up to 50% – what a deal! The less they have to move across country, the better so you won’t have to feel guilty with this purchase since you would be helping her & Jon out *wink* Note: The TE Store will not be shipping orders for two weeks from June 27 - July 11th during the transition of the move. However, the store will be open and you can still place orders and they will begin shipping on Monday July 13th.
