Putting your heart on paper


My brother and his wife had to make the painful decision to put their dog to sleep last month.  Anyone who has had a pet knows how agonizing that process is, and the thought that your fur friend is depending on you to do the right thing makes it that much harder.   I never met Ghostrider, but we loved her from the photos and stories and know that Don and Theresa are missing her.  It took me a while to get the feeling right, but I finally finished the card that’s been in my heart:

Thinking of you

  • Just Believe and Silhouette Sentiments stamp sets
  • Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, River Rock, Whisper White and Melon Mambo card stock
  • Crumb Cake, River Rock and Melon Mambo Classic ink pads
  • Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo and Rose Red Stampin’ Write markers
  • Antique brads, Linen thread and Stampin’ Dimensionals

That Melon Mambo panel has a fluorescent pink cast – trust me, it’s our lovely Mambo pink.

The message I’m sending is simple – I’m so sorry.  As much as I love words, I’ve never found any more profound than that when someone has lost a loved one.

  1. This card is so beautiful and meaningful as well. Losing a family member (and beloved pets are family members) is so difficult. I know that your brother and his wife will not only appreciate your thoughtfulness but they’ll also love your card.
