Buster is home!

Hi Everyone!
I repeat, Buster is home :)

He had his surgery and the doc said he was a champ! 
(we already knew that)

He is a little sleepy, but doing really well!

Right there is the world's greatest dog!

They flushed his kidneys while he was sedated, so they had to shave his arm.

Here is where the nasty tumor WAS. Also where he his hair used to be :)

The after. With about 10 or so stitches.

He goes back in two weeks for more shots and to see how the stitches are doing. Hubby is going to pick up a cone on the way home, so he can't get to the area while we are sleeping.

Thank you all so much for your support & prayers!
You guys are the best

Many many hugs,

Update on Buster

Hi everyone,
Well, the doc just called with the results from Buster's blood work. He said everything looked good. His thyroid is fine, sugar levels are fine. The one thing that was elevated was his Kidneys. But, he said he can have the surgery. Yahoo! (now the real nerves settle in)

He said while he is sedated, he is going to flush out his kidneys.

Cost of surgery: $350.00
Cost of Kidney Flush: $100.00
Cost of a happy & healthy Buster: Priceless!!!!!!

Thank you all so much for your prayers, we all really do appreciate them.

Many hugs, Stacy

Prayers For Buster

Hi Everyone ~ Happy Monday To You~

I know that this is not Cricut related, and I am sorry! It is about our dog Buster!

He has a tumor on his side, (it is actually coming out of his 10th nipple). It is big and infected.
Hubby took him to the vet on Saturday and the vet confirmed it was a tumor and HAS to be removed with surgery. Ugh, I am a nervous wreck about it.

Here is Buster in the car with daddy on the way to the vet!

He got weighed (73 pounds), had blood work done, got a few shots and got some medicine. The blood work results we get tomorrow (April 28th) to see if he is okay to have the surgery. If all goes good, he is scheduled to have it on Wednesday. He will stay overnight (nervous wreck again) and come home Thursday!.

I just ask all of my friends to keep Buster in your prayers, that the blood work will be okay and that he can have the surgery. I will keep you all updated.

Thanks so much
Many many hugs, Stacy

Make It Now Succulent Card

Hi Everyone
Happy Tuesday To you!

Today I am sharing a Make It Now card using the Cricut Explore and Design Space.

This is called the Succulent Card. (although mine is not so succulent LOL). It is also a Print then Cut card, because the flowers are printed.

While this was fun, I sure did make some boo boos. As you can see by the photo, my text is crooked, and I have glue globs everywhere. I used the Stampin' Up! 2 Way Glue Pen, great glue unless like me, you use to much :)

The colors of card stock I used were Soft Suede for the base of the card, Crumb Cake for the strip, and Sahara Sand for the lettering. Again all Stampin' Up!

The flowers printed really well. You can even see the detail on each of them. (I used our new Canon Pixma MX922)

You can see my disastrous video here:

Hope you have a great day! ~ Hugs, Stacy ~

Happy Easter

Hi Everyone ~ Happy Friday To You ~

TodayI am sharing a really cute Easter basket made with Design Space.
Appropriate since Easter is this Sunday!
My oh my this year seems to be flying by. The basket is from the cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 (which is included in the monthly subscription through cricut.com ($9.99 per month) You can see all the cartridges included in the plan HERE. You can also subscribe HERE.

How cute right? It measures about 4 x 4 when you use 2 12 x 12 pieces of card stock. I think this is perfect for the little ones to carry around at an Easter Egg Hunt. They expand a little bit as well. Of course, you want to use a good quality card stock (such as Stampin' Up!) which you can purchase from me here. www.stampnshare.com

Here is the video showing how easy this basket is:

Hope you all enjoy and have a great weekend, and a fabulous Easter Sunday!
Thank you all so much for your support
Many hugs, Stacy
