On vacation!

I am signing off for about a week, on vacation! I will post a couple of cards for my Design Teams when I get back. Going to sunny Florida! Can't be much hotter than it has been here this summer! My dogs got groomed yesterday so I am going to show off my pets. The white dog is Lady, the Peke-a-poo is Tiny and the Cat is Chloe. My neice is coming to take care of them while we are gone. Bye for now, be back in touch in a week!
