If you are easily offended...then you may not want to view this post. Since I've lost a subscriber due to my "Naughty Snowman" card I almost decided not to post this card. But then I decided I just didn't care. You can view it or not. You can choose to subscribe or not to subscribe to my blog. If you're offended by a card...then I'm not going to tiptoe around you. My reality is different than yours. I've used dark humor to survive a life that was often painful.
Christmas is NOT my most favorite time of the year. I lost my first pregnancy on December 23rd. My Mom spent her last Christmas in the hospital where they were prepping her for surgery the following day. She had no food and was drinking the stuff that makes you miserable because it cleans you out. I stopped by the hospital so she could see our son (then 6 months old but only the second time she'd had a chance to see him since he spent the first 3 months of his life in an incubator). She had surgery the following day where the incompetent surgeon nicked her bowel. She died a month later (January 31st) from sepsis - secondary to the perforated bowel. Also, this time of year is the time of year where I see little girls all dressed up and see all the little girl toys advertised. And I miss my daughters that passed away. I mourn the opportunity to raise a daughter. So, forgive me if my holiday spirit isn't all it's cracked up to be. I do try. (As you can see with all the holiday gifts for my coworkers...) But, once in a while, I need to do something that reflects the way I am feeling (instead of the way I'm portraying on the outside). And that is what this card is.
I don't know if you can tell or not...but I used dimensionals on the dogs back leg and it's tail so they stick up away from the paper a bit. I also left the snowman's hands loose so they stick out as well. I printed the saying on the computer.
Well, off to work with me. I do have some cute Rudolf boxes to post tomorrow.
