I am relief to find out that my pug, Ollie get to keep her eye. After a hefty vet bill, they said she should be okay and gave her a couple more prescription on top of what the emergency vet gave her. My goodness, at least with human we can get generic prescription, no such thing for pet. I thought since we already took her to the emergency care, the regular vet visit would cost less. Hmm... no. It was more.
Oh well, I had a heart to heart talk with my Sheltie, Nick that he should know better that he's bigger than Ollie and shouldn't be so rough with her. I was like, Nick do you know how much stamps mommy could buy with the vet bill?? LOL. I was like if you going to bicker with one another, do it on weekday, not on weekend, so no emergency vet visit. Even better, don't fight. Sigh... my fur babies, they drive me crazy sometime, but most importantly they bring so much love & joy into our life.
Okay, enough with doggies report. Today, I get to share with you my very first assignment for Digital Doodle using the new "Thankful" set. I made a place card box and a fun mini card.
The box function as place card and as container. I decorate the box with the pie image layered on scallop circle. Layered the pie twice for extra dimension and the whip topping is covered with yummy glitters. Inside the box are a bunch of printed banner with the words "Happy Thanksgiving" on top. The idea is everybody get to write things they're thankful for and then I can use it as banners for my Thanksgiving layout.
Another idea would be we write things that we're thankful for for each family member and then we exchange the banner with each other. For example, I'll write why I am thankful for my MIL, FIL, etc., they do the same about me & other family member, then we exchange banners, that way when we're done we each will have a box full of banner list of things that make us special to other. Often we take family member for granted and this would be a great way to take the time to show our appreciation. What do you think??
I had the hardest time taking picture of the box as I want to try to show the pretty sheer gold ribbon that I wrapped aroud the box. That box kept falling down & wouldn't stand still. :)
Edited to add: this pic showing the pie box from different angle.
