There are two layers of paper popped up with craft foam and dimensionals. First, the die cut of the the cross, which has three different stamps. The MISTI is essential when stamping these three stamps...and it seemed the more I stamped, the harder the three were to line up, even with the MISTI. Second, the center of the cross, which has two different stamps...also harder to line up the more I stamped.
Anyway, the close-up shows how pretty the layers are.
Now for the news, and it's not good. Although Cooper's surgery went extremely well and he is now neutered, his X-rays showed problems with his hips and elbows. Serious problems. Both his parents were certified clear on hips and elbows (common issues with goldens), and none of the other pups from either parent has ever presented with problems in either area. These things happen, and Cooper is just unlucky.
Or lucky, if you consider that he's ours, and we will do all we can to keep him happy, healthy, and comfortable.

But I am sad. Chronic joint issues will not be fun for him. If you're the praying type, we'd appreciate a little prayer for our Cooper.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
