{Paper Smooches} I Dig You + An Update


Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. This one-layer features the adorable little dachshund, sentiment and paw-heart from Woofers & Tweeters. I masked the sweetie against Kim's first dachshund that came with Santa Paws and made them a couple. Aren't they the cutest? :)


I know, it's been really quiet around here. I've had a really rough week and a half that included my second miscarriage in six months. My son then caught a virus that inflamed his lungs causing asthma. Now he has a couple of inhalers and isn't able to run around like he's used to so he's really miserable and also upset that he's missing school. I am completely exhausted with the shift in hormones and having to deal with my son's illness. Most nights, I just sit around staring into space and watching sappy movies so I can get all the tears out. Anyway, enough of bumming you all out. I know things will get better. I hope you are all having a much better start to this month!!

Poor D too - my oldest had the same sort of experience when he was a little bit older, and yep, it really sucks. At least he's missing school! That means he likes it :)
I dig you loads, Emily! I cannot even send you big enough hugs.

Emily, I've been catching up on my Google Reader and just came across this. I am so sorry for your loss - I had two miscarriages before we were lucky to get our third child. I hope this works out for you too. Also hoping that by now your son is feeling much better.
