I've been sooooooooooo busy, and FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL, SO GOOD I COULD BURST NEWS!!!Scout is HOME!!!! And, he's happy to be here! It seems the neighbor 4 houses down, who works a strange shift, had Scout all along! She was hammering a poster into the ground on the corner, and I screamed at Mark, "HEY!!!!! Stop the CAR!!!!!!! That's Scout!!!!!!" Mark almost wrecked, but I was out of the car and RUNNING toward her screaming, "HEY!!! That's our dog!!! Didn't you read the posters WE put up???" I hugged her, crying, she was crying, it was just so GREAT! We met her back at her house, and Scout came running out with all the other "strays" she has collected,(I think she has 10+) Anyway, we took him home, cleaned him up and gave him much love, and that was BEFORE Markie came home from school! He didn't skip a beat when he got in the car at the school, "Have you guys heard anything about Scout?" This time, we both smiled and said, "Yes!" Markie started crying, and of course it became a crying festival in the car. Mark was choking up, too! So, we have Scout back, safe, and HAPPY!
The Poinsettia was stamped in Noir, a waterproof ink, and colored in with Memento Markers and aqua painters.

Lovely card & fantastic news about Scout - I can totally identify with you, I can just imagine the scene :) Our dog is a much loved but muttered about by husband (he is the one who let's him sleep on our bed!) member of our family and we would go nuts if he went awol! Great day all round I'd say.
