Love this Cricut image and the cute stamped sentiment.
This little octopus really looks like he is happily swimming along!

This, of course, also means my AC bill is the highest on record.

  6. Hi Elizabeth! Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog today! I would dearly love to send this set to you!!! If you will e-mail me your name and address, I'll put it in the mail. It may be next week, as we've had a death in the family, so be patient with me!!! I'm loving your little Bella - we have 2 white dogs, DD has a white dog, and DS has a white dog! Not deliberate - we just take the 'orphans' and give them a home, and the white dogs just happened to be the ones that no one else wanted! Drop me an e-mail, darlin'!!!
