Friends Furever

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today's card is one I made for a sad occasion. My sister-in-law's family just had to euthanize their dog, as he had been suffering from cancer. I wanted to let them know we're thinking of them. This set, MFT's Friends Furever, immediately came to mind. I altered the ear on the dog by omitting the ones on the image when I was inking it, then drawing in the new ear. Now it looks more like their beloved Lab, Alby.

The sketch is Mojo Monday 129. It's different, but it was fun to work with! The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety Mini Deck. I inked all the edges and machine stitched around all the panels.

I hope this card brings them smiles and good memories. Alby will defininely be missed!

Thanks so much for the visit today -- I hope you're having a great weekend!

Sorry to hear about the pup. I have two dogs and they can sure grow on you. When something happens it brings tears to my eyes even if it's not my pup. :(

May the Lord be with them at this time of sadness.

Hope this card brings a little smile.

What a very sweet card. You and I had something in common this week because I had to send a pet sympathy card to my vet who lost his Golden last week. Your card is beautiful and it was wonderful of you to be so thoughtful. You are my kind of person! Best, Curt

Losing a pet is so tough, my daughter still gets a tear in her eye and we had to put ours down a year ago because of cancer too! The card is perfect!
