Crafting is a Work of Heart | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a beautiful 4th of July and enjoyed some lovely fireworks, if that’s your sort of thing!

Last week I signed up for Splitcoaststampers’ monthly “Tickle a Teapotter” challenge, in which we’re given the opportunity to surprise a fellow SCS member with a card along the lines of whatever the challenge is that month, something I enjoy signing up for when the timeframe suits me as it’s a thrill to make a card for another cardmaker!

A thrill, and a bit scary, too… I am always a bit worried they’ll notice any oopsies that non-cardmakers would likely be entirely immune too. 😉

July Fan Club Challenge Sneak Peek: Pile of Thanks | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Good morning, everyone, and happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! Talk about a reason to celebrate, right? I’m jumping in today with another sneak peek of what you’re missing out on if you’re not a Splitcoast Fan Club member – something you can celebrate every day, holiday or not!

For more information as to why this is just a glimpse and not the full-on “real deal” I usually post, please check out this post where I shared some exciting news! I did include the backstory here though for a little reading for you. 🙂

Last month, our kitty took a sudden turn to illness on a Thursday afternoon, not acting like himself at all. After observing him closely and drawing on my knowledge from and experience in the veterinary world, I knew I couldn’t let it get to the weekend without having a professional opinion and a veterinary visit.

With a new clinic down the road recently opened by a veterinarian I had respect for, I gave them a call first thing Friday morning after praying for the chance to have him seen, same day, at this small two-doctor practice. Anyone familiar with small veterinary practices in Northern Minnesota, in the summer, on a Friday, knows that this chance was basically slim to none.
