Doggy Sympathy Card

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a pet sympathy card I made for some friends who recently lost their much-loved dog.  I know how pets can become members of the family and how hard it is when we lose them.  I hope this card will help them know that others are sharing their pain.

The journaling card that I trimmed for a focal panel and the strip of doggy stamps are from Graphic 45's Raining Cats & Dogs series. Of course, I love their cat items, but sometimes dog images come in handy. The sentiment is from my Paper Smooches - Feline Friends stamp set that contains some items that are useful for canine cards, too.  

Other supplies used include:
Versafine ink - Vintage Sepia for sentiment
Distress ink - Walnut Stain for inking edges of panels
Scraps from my stash for panels and mats.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate each and every one of you.

    Sweet card. Sad loss.
    Somebody I know will soon have a new puppy, following months of grieving the loss of a dear pet. I LIKE the idea of this card. Pets are family members, too.

  6. Awwww, it's always so hard to lose a sweet furry friend and I know your friend will find comfort in this card. A more perfect use for this Graphic 45 collection couldn't be found.
