Happy Birthday Tom

 Well I know it's been a long time since I have posted. I am in the processing of selling my house, but in July I moved into a condo.  I still have not unpacked my crafting supplies and my family was shocked that I had to have the movers come back a second day because I had soooo many things in my basement for craft supplies. Unfortunately my 13 year old Siamese cat passed away a month before the move and I was devastated. It was the first time that I was alone in the house. The day after I moved into my new place I got myself a new lilac lynx Siamese kitten that I named Polly after my great Grandmother Appolonia. This kitten is polydactyl, which is that she has an extra digit on each paw. So it's like she has a thumb and it looks like a mitten. Breeders consider it a sign of good luck and having her is she is my good luck charm. She is adorable and makes me smile and laugh.  So that's life. I am still trying to adjust to the new place and slowly find some time to craft.
I had to make a card for a friend who had a birthday this month. I used an image from Homebrew Herman from Dr. Digi's. And I put Glossy Crackle on the beer mug. I also used the background paper from Dr. Digi's beer backing papers.

Oh my word, you have a lot going on! I didn't know you moved and are selling your house. Good for you - I hope everything goes smoothly. Please accept my sympathies on the loss of your precious kitty; it's not easy. We still talk about our two every day. Your new girl Polly is a beauty - I just saw her photos in the post above and I love her! Your beer card is awesome - great for a man and a couple of my brothers would appreciate a card like this for sure!
