Christmas cheer...

Merry Christmas!!!
This Christmas day is finding Jim & I hanging out at home with Story and the cats. {Technically 1 cat, because Daisy will still not venture into the living room, near Story} Jim's chemo makes him feel crappy a lot of the time, so he stayed home with me, instead of going to his sisters. It's just a quiet day everywhere! Not so bad when you gotta work the next day though. hehe
As promised, here is the last of my Christmas cards. This one goes out to my east coast friend, Maria, who is one amazing dog lover and spends LOTS of time finding homes for needy pups. If I lived anywhere near her, I am afraid there would be no Story, I'd want to adopt all the dogs she posts on Facebook. Maria's dog-walker, partner in crime is Cindy! {mom to a house full of Yorkies...like my Niki} You girls are a true inspiration and the meaning of a giving heart.   :)
Here is a Stampin' UP throw back in time... Loads of Love and if you look really closely, the little dog at the back of the truck is Story. haha I have kept very few Stampin' UP sets, but this one was always a favorite and I bought the expansion set, so it's great for more occasions. 
I have some mixed media pieces to share but the photos still need downloading and I gotta get my kielbasa in the oven and get dinner moving along. 
Be back soon! Hope Santa was good to everyone!!!!

This set never looked so good! It's one of the few (that may be an underestimate) SU sets I've kept too!

Sorry Jim is feeling crappy...but I hope that you enjoyed a quiet Christmas together! Kielbasa was part of ours too :) And the bestest prime rib I ever made...courtesy of Anne Burrell! Oh man, I can't wait until leftovers!!!

Hi Paula! I've missed your posts...literally! For some reason, I kind of "lost" your new blog address - I thought you weren't blogging anymore. So happy to discover I was wrong! Wow - a lot has gone on in your life since I last visited your blog. Sorry to hear about Jim's cancer and the loss of your beloved Niki-boy. What a roller coaster life is, eh? Glad to see that you have a new pup in your life. I'm sure Story brings both of you much happiness! Love your card, and I, too, am a 'saver' of this old SU set! It's a winner! Wishing you a happy, healthy..."smooth ride" of a new year!
