Happy Beerday...

I made this for my hubs birthday which was yesterday.  He took Thursday and Friday off to make a long weekend which has been nice having him home.  We went to the movies last night to see Savages then out for Mexican food for dinner.  We headed home after so we can check on our Chihuahua's.  Chi Chi (our oldest) has been very ill the last couple of weeks.  She was down to 4 platelets.  Yes, 4.  We had no idea she was anemic and was suffering from an autoimmune disease.  We noticed she's been losing a little weight but she seemed fine, acted and ate like normal.  She had blood Friday and happy to say her platelet count was up to 397.  She's doing better, but not out of the woods yet.  Our littlest chihuahua, Corona has a growth between her toes.  They opened it, drained it a little and did x-rays.  She has a mini looking cast like thing on her paw she has to wear for two weeks and will go back to have it looked at too see if they can remove it.  Thankfully our other chihuahua, Kahlua is happy and healthy!

Happy Beerday

My entry for this weeks Bellariffic Friday Challenge, which is embossing. This is the first time I've inked up Beer Peep from Stamping Bella though I've had it forever.  I did my usual, Memento, Neenah, and Copics.  I went over the bottle with a Glaze Pen.  Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and EP Little Boy Paper.  Denami Design Button, Twine and CB Folder.  This is the first time I've played along with the gals over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This is FMS42
