Forever Friend.....

     Here is a card I made prior to us having to put down our Black Lab, Jessie Girl!  It has been a few weeks now and although she is so sadly missed, we all know it was for the best.   Sometimes I turn quickly as I feel her presence.

    My friend Carol sent me some punches from the SU dog punch that came out recently, and I had to create something.  I used more of my scraps, for the background, and added to a black base.  My stitched window is an unknown and I used the center for my sentiment.  My dog has a white embossed collar with a gem stone tag and a sweet little heart that is dangling from it's lips.  I finished my corners with black enamel dots.  I since purchased the punch, as I am feeling this will be used frequently!

     Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

      Found a fun card in my files that I created ages ago.  Thought I would share it, since it uses so many fun things.  The chicken image and sentiment are from TLC creations and are digital.  This embossing folder has no maker but made for a fun background.  I used a scrap of sunflower paper with a stitched postage edge die  as a place mat with a cross stitched semi-circle a my sentiment holder.  Coloring was done with colored pencils to make my chicken look crispy.  I added a slurry of green sequins for some sparkle.  Oh what fun! 

     My stamp room is down and mostly packed.  Our move will start next week.  I really miss getting my fingers inky, but it will be fun to unpack and reorganize, I think.  I will find many forgotten things to get busy using, since I will not be working anymore.  So many new things.... retirement, new house, new state and plenty to explore.
