A CAS Card & Some Fun News!!

Happy Monday! I have so many fun things to share with you!

Everyone wants to know if we have puppies. Yes, Dakota delivered her last puppy safely on Sunday morning. Momma and pups are doing fine!

I have to share a cute story. At 9AM that morning Dakota had blessed us with 10 little bundles of fur. She had not delivered a pup in several hours. John separates the pups into two “batches” to make it easier for Momma to nurse, taking care to rotate them out every 2 hours. This makes Momma frantic, so John placed the box of puppies in the other room of our basement. Dakota was contentedly nursing Batch number 2.

Now by this time, John had been up all night and decided he needed a little snack to make it through. He slipped upstairs, wolfed down a sandwich and a cup of coffee before returning to check on the new Mom. Naturally, he counts heads to make sure everyone is safe and NOT under Momma. (Since Saints are such a large breed, they can accidentally crush a puppy.)

One little Saint, two little Saints, three little Saints, four little Saints, five little Saints, SIX little Saints??? So John counts again... One, two, three, four, five, SIX!!!! By this time my hubby REALLY thinks he needs some sleep! So he runs to the back room to check and sure enough there are 5 puppies in there! Thankfully Dakota has not learned how to turn doorknobs, steal her puppy back AND close the door behind her! So Mom had an extra surprise for us!

So as you can see it has been an exciting weekend here! But that’s not all! I have more exciting news I can share. I am deeply honored to be guest designing at The Shabby Tea Room this April. Thanks to Debbie for extending the invitation! They always have the most amazing inspiration photos! Every Monday you will find a new challenge. Please be sure to stop in and say hello!

So on to today’s card….

I am trying CAS (clean and simple). With spring coming and naturally spring cleaning… I find myself thinking about a more simple approach on some of my cards. Never fear! I’m just mixing it up a bit! Thanks so much for visiting and until next time…
