Henry Hugging Bauble - CCC #67

Good morning friends and happy Tuesday!  Thank you for all the good wishes for Maggie Mae.  She's such a sweet kitty.  She was on an antibiotic for 4 days and it was making her sick, so I've stopped giving it to her.  The capsule was huge for her little mouth; made for people; purchased at a people pharmacy.  Since the vet is not even sure what, if anything, is wrong with her, then I can't see upsetting her, stressing her out, and giving her meds that might not be anything good for her.  I'm still putting drops in her eye and it is almost cleared up.  The rest, well, we'll see how things go.

So, on to my card for this Creative Card Crew.  Our theme if you can't tell is Christmas in July.  I had such fun putting this one together.

  5. Well, first of all, I'm glad to hear Maggie Mae's eye is starting to clear up. I was hopeful it would, but it's nice to hear about it. Poor baby with those pills. I'm sure you're right that she doesn't need them, anyway. Now, on to your card... it's the cutest thing with Henry hugging his bauble. He loves his bauble. I love the ornament sticker, too. Just darling!
