I'm Back---I think!!!

Bear and Bailey

Good Tuesday morning fellow stampers!
First of all I'd like to thank you all for being patient with me for such a long time! First before and during my son's wedding and then the week after during our adored 5 year old Yorkie Bama's injury, surgery and so sadly, his death. The surgery went well, but the next day, he got pneumonia and was never able to recover due to his paralysis. On that 3rd day, we made the painful decision to let him go---he did not deserve to suffer anymore. Needless to say we are both heartbroken---he was such an joyful addition to our lives and will never be replaced! BUT in our grief, we lost our minds and got two (that's right not one, but two) 8 week old Yorkie puppies!!! :-). They are brother and sister and we named them "Bear" (from Bama's name you might have guessed DH is an Alabama graduate) and this name is after Bear Bryant, a famous, loved Ala. coach and Bailey---cause it starts with a "B". LOL! They are so cute and weigh 2 # each. Thus far they've been pretty easy. I'm trying to paper train them so if anyone has any good advice, please let me know!
I'm starting to get some creative juices flowing again and actually taught an intermediate Copic class last week and today's and Wednesday's cards are what I did for the class.
