What a week! Our poor Abby is not doing well. I know those of you that come to my stamp room for club and classes all think she's a sweetheart and so do we. I've spent a good portion of my week tending to her. They are treating her for an infection but have some suspicions that it could be an aggressive type of cancer. I take her to the vet again today and they will decide if they feel she's improving or if they need to do a needle aspiration for a biopsy. I will let you know how the visit goes. It's funny how the animals in our lives become such a special part of the family.
When Abby's best friend (my husband) is away she wants to be in my stamp room so she made it up the stairs and I did manage to make a graduation card this morning. It's my version of the graduation owl. I added a bow tie to mine in honor of a fun young man I know who loves to wear bow ties.
- The Owl Builder Punch is great for making and dressing cute owls. You can decide by the clothing and accessories whether you want a boy or girl owl. Mine today is a true academic.
- The cap is a 5/8" square topped with a tassel made from Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. I cut and frayed the the ends.
- His glasses are the largest circles on the punch with small ear pieces cut by hand. The bow tie was also cut by hand.
- I used a small rectangle of copy paper for the diploma and tied it with White Baker's Twine.
