SC169 Tart and Tangy

I have to say this card surprised me. I hate Yo-Yo Yellow, and I've hardly touched Wild Wasabi or Pumpkin Pie. I had the basic idea for this card in my head, but when I went to make it I realized I'd have to use these colors which I thought would look really bad together. I'm actually really happy with it though. I was browsing the past sketch challenges on SCS and came across SC169 from a few weeks ago and I knew it would be perfect. I think I'll definitely be using this sketch a lot. I don't think you can tell in the pic, but the brad on the main panel is from the new Hodgepodge hardware. It says Genuine. I LOVE the new HPH! It's so pretty I can hardly bring myself it use it.

Puppy update-
Some of you may remember my post about the puppies I was having a hard time finding homes for. Well this really wonderful person saw my post and contacted me. They emailed several rescues trying to help me, and one of them sent out a mass email to rescues in other states. A foster home for a animal shelter (when they don't have room) contacted me and said she could take some of them. In the meantime I did find homes for 4. Between the woman in PA and friend of hers they were able to take the remaining 5. Her friend drove all the way down to SC! I met her at a shelter in Greenville where she was picking up 5 other dogs to rescue. The lady that came to get them and her family kept 2 of them, and the other woman kept one and is fostering the other two till homes can be found for them. They have both sent me pictures. The puppies are all doing great! I can't tell you how amazing these people are. Thank you all so much for everything you do!!
