Thank You From Maxine by MelonHeadz

I have a fun thank you card to share with you today from Maxine.
I e mailed Nikki at MelonHeadz during the weekend and asked if she'd draw Maxine and color her for me and attached a picture.  It wasn't long before I had an e mail from Nikki with this cute colored digital image of Maxine - thank you Nikki!

I wanted to be able to send Carolyn who took care of Maxine while she was in the animal hospital a thank you card what ever the outcome would be.  I'm happy to say this thank you card can be from Maxine and family.  

I used Operation Write Home sketch #27 for my card, the cardstock colors are Stampin' Up! Rose Red & Rose Romance as well as Neenah Solar White & The Paper Mill Nut Brown.  The rubber stamps I used were the foot print from Stampin' Up! Canine Capers, the thank you is from Sweet Pea Stamps and I used a Sizzix large dots embossing folder.

I have a picture of Maxine for you today too.

There's no place like home...  and Mom's bed.

Maxine has wanted to be very close to us since she's returned home.  We were watching t.v. last night and she joined us on our bed.  Right in the middle with her head resting on Rick's shoulder and back side touching me snoring softly.  

This is where I found her this morning when I went to get ready for the day.  Comfort security and the smell of her people.  Speaking of smell... she doesn't smell very sweet but I can change the sheets and she can have a bath tomorrow after the bandage from her IV site comes off.

Thanks for your prayers she's getting better!

The digi image is so adorable that Nikki drew of Maxine. What a special image that will be, forever.

Puppy hugs to Maxine.
