Ruff Day? Yes, for Jamie...

This is a card I made for Tracy's Sketch Challenge for this week :) The stamps are a couple of my favorites by The Cat's Pajamas: "Poochie on Crutches" and "Ruff Day?" - aren't they fun? The patterned paper is by Daisy Bucket, and the ovals are Nestabilities dies.
We had a bit of a "Ruff Day" yesterday; Jamie had an upset stomach from Sunday night through Monday afternoon, but he seemed OK otherwise. On Monday night, though, he woke up around midnight saying that his ear hurt, so I put some drops in his ear and gave him some Tylenol at that point and then again in the morning. I called the doctor and got an appointment for 2pm, and of course by noon he was saying he felt all better...Iain and I decided it was still worth getting him checked out anyway - and I'm glad I did, because it turns out he has a really bad ear infection! The doctor thinks he was probably just feeling better because the pressure is worse when they're lying down, and also the effects of the drops were probably still there. Poor little guy! At least we have the antibiotics now, though, so it won't take long for them to kick in.

Toni I envy all of your creative time. The "ruff" day made me chuckle :)

Hope Jamie is better soon.

Beautiful card! I love the stitching on the frame. Hope Jamie is feeling better today. Smart mom & dad to take him to the Dr just in case. :)

Glad Jamie is doing better - Shaun was one never to show an ear infection easily either.
Love the card & the stitching on the frame - TOO cute!
