Sorry for the loss of your best friend........

How is everyone doing here on the 2nd day of the New Year?  Kept (or broke) any New Year Resolutions yet?

I wanted to keep on my "roll" of creating (two days in a row - new record pretty much!) so I went over to My Favorite Things for their weekly sketch challenge to get some inspiration.  Lucky for me, it was a rather basic sketch that would work for any kind of card, and a sketch that I will likely turn to again and again.  Here is the sketch they gave:

Since I have had the fear of losing a dear pet of mine weighing heavy on my heart the last few weeks, I decided I would do a Pet Sympathy card tonight.  Luckily, my "Karma Sue" has hung in there and seems to be improving somewhat.  However, I am sure there are others out there that treat their pets as family members as well, and when they do lose a pet would appreciate receiving a note of comfort.     This is what I came up with:

The sentiment at the bottom corner reads "a dog wags its tail with its heart".  I stamped the dog as to be "fading off" the page, but showing that a dog will wag his tail to the very end.   The inside of the card simply reads "So sorry for the loss of your best friend." .  I have provided an "ingredient list" at the bottom of the page of the materials used in making the card.  It is very simple, but sweet card I think.

Ingredient List:

Cardstock:  Stampin Up! Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip
Designer paper: Paper Adventures "Susie Muise Paw Print on Pink
Inks: Stampin Up! Basic Brown
Stamps: Stampin Up! D is for Dog

Happy Crafting!
