Awesome is Your Middle Name

Coffee of the Day - Spicy Chipotle with Bacon Syrup, yep it's my coffee!

sorry that my post is late today. oh my lawsie, life - it has been interesting over here.... our poor dog Mocha has been so very sick these past few days. not sure if she's going to make it or not. she and her sister, Latte, are 12 years old, so we are thankful for every day we have them. but gosh almighty, these past few days have been rough. the boys have all been stopping by when they can to check on her. She perks right up when she sees her boys! oh how she loves them, and they her. I don't leave her side. so between that, losing our only vehicle, and my newest health/cancer ick, we are really counting blessings around here. and thanking God for every minute of every day with those we love.

As I had mentioned a little while ago, I am a guest designer over at Scribbles by Sandy Designs. a new challenge has started today called 'Manly Men, Masculine, and Dads.' The challenge rules have changed, so any images on your projects are now welcome. Sandy does offer a freebie for you to use though, so be sure to grab it.

I used the fun image Cool Carl along with a sentiment from Create with TLC. papers are Basic Grey Origins.   the leaf die and linen thread are SU! and buttons are from my stash.

Ladybug Crafts - for the men in your life
Scrap it Girl - die cuts
Crafter's Cafe - fathers or for a male
Digi Haven - anything goes
Kitty Bee Designs - Father's Day/masculine
