Work In Process

Well, I was trying really hard last night to get my card completed from the Mojo Monday Design Sketch, really I was. I had the base on the card done, my DSP (designer series paper) cut, had my stamp set out ... and then all of a sudden I heard a piercing meow coming from Darci. She had gotten herself stuck in the rails of one of the fold up chairs and she was hanging by her neck from the chair. You can imagine my panic and while I tried to get her out, she was biting my hands. Now, those of you who own pets know that the biting is just a reflex. I got her neck freed, then her leg was caught and I managed to get that free. Then I looked at my hands and my left was dripping blood. (I know, yucky, huh!). One of the puncture wounds was pretty deep and I was shaking, but Dr. Mickey came to my rescue and bandaged me up. While I was upset about for my hands, I was so relieved that Darci was okay. I was even more thrilled when I woke up this morning and have no throbbing in my hand like I did last night! Woo hoo!!!

So, all that being said, my plans are to complete my card tonight and post it. However, today is my birthday (woo hoo)!!! One of the things that I always do is open all my cards (they have been filling my mail box) on my birthday. It makes my birthday more special to open them on my day so don't fret -- if you mailed it, its in my birthday stack and I'll open it tonight - I can't wait!!! Gives me something to look forward to when I get home from work!!

I hope you enjoy your day as much as I plan on doing!!!! :-)

Glad to hear that you and Darci are OK. Being a fellow cat lover I can understand the panic (been there except it was a wood chair with slats)and the cat's reflex to bite.

Tell Darci to be just a tad bit more careful! :-)

Thanks so much!!! My hubby told me all I needed to do was just lay the chair down, but you know that panic set in!!! Glad you guys were okay with that wood chair!!! Gotta love those cats, but they have to get into EVERYTHING!
