Miss You

Hello my friends. I'm back with a card I made on Monday but I simply was not in the right frame of mind to post it. It's been a terrible few days for us...we lost our sweet darling baby-dog Snoopi on Saturday in a cruel hit and run. She was such a precious little dog, so full of life, so loving and giving. We are both stunned, its unbelievable. It's difficult to write this without breaking down. I must apologise for not having returned your visits ... it's been so hard, especially since Snoopi was, in fact, my most ardent blog-buddy. It's just not the same without her. Needless to say, she's the reason behind this card.


The papers are from First Edition "New Leaf" 8x8 pad.

The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments set, stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle,  cut with Spellbinders Circle and Eyelet Circle dies. I also inked the edge with TH Vintage Photo.

Simple embellishments: a little snippet of ribbon, a few flatback pearls and a button. 

Kept the inside simple.

I'm linking this card with Mojo Monday #289Craft-room Challenge "So Sentimental"Top Tip Tuesday #99 "No Machine Sewing" (all hand-stitched!); Use It Tuesday #53 "Sticky Situation" (hoarded item: button and brown pearls with glue-dots and tacky glue);Lady Anne's Challenges - April "Anything Goes"Sandy's Crafty Creations - April "Anything Goes With Twist- Stitching" and Card and Scrap #53 "Use Dies"

Thank you all for visiting and leaving such encouraging words. Your thoughts, prayers have been very comforting. I'll leave you with this picture of Snoopi and I walking on the beach at sunrise, taken not long ago.

Beijinhos!

  25. Oh Asha, I am so sorry about your Snoopi. We get in such habit with them that every time you go to do something and your pup isn't there, we cry again. I am sorry you hurt. A very lovely card you have made for him. Very lovely. It will have to be someone special who you will give this to. My thoughts are with you.
