Brrrrrrrrrr, it's cold!

Hi all. I can't remember a November that's ever been this cold in Kentucky! It feels like January. So who's been to see the movie Twilight? I'm finally going tomorrow, can't wait. Hope I'm not disappointed! But I don't think any movie could ever beat the book.
My card tonight is kinda different. I made it with Colorbok cardstock, Melissa Frances tag sticker, Martha Stewart ribbon, and hemp....and drum roll please....can anyone tell what the polka dots are made of? FELT! I'm telling you felt is the best stuff! The dots were so easy, just cut them out and stick a glue dot on the back and I was good to go. And they have dimension, which I love. I think the card is prettier in person, but didn't want to take the time to scan it so I just took a quick picture.

OK now I have 2 pictures that have nothing to do with scrapbooking! First off, a picture of my dear ducks. They were so happy Friday morning in the snow! I just love them, I've had them almost 2 years. A friend of mine bought them for her daughter for Easter and once they started growing she didn't know what to do with them. I told her I'd be tickled pink to have them, and the rest is history. I've read that many people don't like the white ducks as pets because they are "mouthy". When they are hungry, mad, anything....they start quacking. When the girl duck gets mad she runs and lets the boy have it, quacking up a storm...kinda like we do to our husbands!

My next picture is my baby, Jake, cuddled by the fire. I adopted him from Petfinder in 2004. He was a stray with a skin condition and a collar that was about to cut into his little he is perfectly healthy with no skin condition. All it took was a little TLC. Over 100 people turned him down his foster Mommy said because of the health problems, but I'm glad because we got the best little buddy in the world!

So the moral of the story is adopt your next pet, they are wonderful and thankful for all you do for them!
