Merry Christmas Gus, Gus

I made this Christmas card for my daughter's pup, so I couldn't post it in case she saw it. Gus was named after the mouse in Cinderella so I thought that I actually have a die with that mouse is perfect for a card for him.
So sorry that I have been around to make comments on everyone's sites...I haven't been home or around much.  Besides all the family holiday gatherings...my best friend's Mother has been quite ill and I have been helping to take care of her.  It has been rather difficult because she has not been cooperative and the rest of her family is in denial and has not been supportive.  We are both nurses, but we are getting burned out.  Her Mother is becoming confused and scared because she knows she forgets things then she lashes out at my friend and is verbally abusive.  So last night, I had to put her to bed since my friend was hysterical and she was more cooperative for me.  So hopefully we will get some support soon, and I can get around to see everyone's cards and make some too.

Your card is adorable and perfect for Gus! Love the sentiment, too! I'm sure your daughter loved it, to! So sorry for your friend...she's fortunate to have YOU! My in-laws were here for Christmas and flew out yesterday to 5'+ of snow in Erie, PA. Fortunately they didn't have any issues going home and not THAT much snow!

Hugs to you my friend!
Brenda

Little Gus is so cute Lisa and so clever of you to use this little mouse, his name sake..it is very hard when you have a person who needs the help but they have an aggressive side through the fear of not really understanding what is happening..poor lady and you two girls will be doing a wonderful job with her..take care.

Luv CHRISSYxx
