Tip Top Taupe…


Today I’m skidding in here with my post by the skin of my teeth.  It’s been a day!  Had to have Willis (yorkie) to the vet this morning before eight, yoga class at nine, then my dentist appointment at 11, meet Joe for lunch, run home and get some house work caught up then run back to vet for Willis….whew!

Poor Willis had to have teeth pulled and some stitches.  He is such a trooper.

Good thing I had this card in my little mind so when I got home it was made in a flash.  Hope you enjoy.
