is a gift... And I really think I've come to appreciate that even more the past few days. Life always has a way of getting away from us. We become consumed in work, what were making for dinner, did the house get vacuumed, are the bathrooms clean, what holiday is coming up, what we have to do this weekend, what our plans are for the up coming months, omgoodness the yard needs to be rake etc. etc. etc.. .... and then in just a split second we realize we need to stop and celebrate the here and now..

Thank you all so very very much for your support through this sad time. I know we gave Harley a beautiful life filled with doing exactly what he wanted to do... basking in the warm sun, playing with his friends, roaming the neighborhood under the glow of the moon, and starring down a chipmunk or two. He spent all day Saturday warming his belly with the
sunshine coming through the dining room window. He sure has left his paw print on our hearts.. :)

This was my shoebox swap for the SCS Eastern Get together.. Thank you Julie for your inspiration.. For this card I used a 4 1/2" square card made from chocolate chip, very vanilla and certainly celery card stock. Out on a limb was stamped in chocolate chip, certainly celery and ruby red. To make the tag I ran a piece of very vanilla card stock through my cuttlebug, stamped the sentiment in ruby red and then distressed the edges of the tag and the card with certainly celery. I added a piece of black hardware to the tag and tied with a piece of cocoa grosgrain ribbon. The green embellishment.. Yep it's one of my favorite dew drops. And finally.. How did I make my scallop.. It's circle punches glued to the back of the certainly celery card stock.. To ensure their in a straight line using a pencil I mark a very light straight line down the center on the back of where ever I'm adhering the circle punches. I then aline the circles up to that line. This will ensure their all even.

And finally... Please don't forget to stop by this post here... and leave a comment for your chance to get in on my latest blog candy.. You have until THURSDAY the 3rd at NOON EST... Good Luck :)

Happy Stamping :)

love the scallops, and you are so right that everyday is a gift because tomorrow is promised to no one.
