Sorry to be tardy, just got out of the hospital yesterday. (sigh) But so GLAD to be home!
This week the teaparty is for Karissa. She is a friend of Fran (philsmom). Karissa Fleagle, a friend's soon to be fiancée, is undergoing open heart surgery for the 5th time, she is also having her 18th heart catheter the day before her surgery.
The surgery is scheduled for July 9th. She is 20 years old. She was born with a congenital heart & lung disease.
That sure does seem like a lot to go thru at such a young age. Hopefully she will like my card filled with mystery items. I used a variety of stamps and embossed the background. I think that dog is really a bulldog, but that about as close to a pug as I have on hand. I spelled out Karissa's name, do you see all the letters? Just wanted to make this a little fun for her.
Thanks for taking a peek and I hope everyone is doing well!

Very clever and cute, Kathleen!! I love how you have us searching for Karissa's name and all your clues! Karissa will love it!
I'm glad that you're home from the hospital, they're not on the list of places I want to be! It's good to have you back in the gallery, just remember to take it easy!

I am so glad you got out of hospital in time to make it to the teaparty (I would miss you Miss Kathleen Lammie from Alabama). Karrisa is sure to love this. I love how you spelt out her name (and no I did not see them until you gave a clue). Your colouring is amazing and I love all the images you have chosen. Another wonderful creation my friend.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

So sorry you were in hospital but glad they sprang you in time for this weeks teaparty. This is a brilliant card, I love all the mysterious items. Even the bg paper looks like the lind of old town that would be steeped in mystery.
