Loss Of A Pet

I am going to keep this short because I played in my craftroom too long and it is now very late (or should I say early?).  Tomorrow is the start of a very fun weekend.  My friend, and now a fellow designer for SNS, is coming into town and a whole group of us will spend the weekend playing together and going to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour Stamp Convention.  I know I won’t be getting very much sleep but will enjoy the time!! 


Earlier this week the lady I work for lost her dog.  She had him a long time and he was quite old, but it still was very sudden.  I had just received the new Sparkle N Sprinkle stampette set, Pet Sympathy.  I just had to stay up and make her a card. 

This image is stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored with markers.  I used a glitter pen to add sparkle to the wings and halo.  I cut it out and add it to the center of a scalloped circle, punched from sticker paper.  I added Shimmering Sea glitter, layered it on a slightly larger scalloped circle in burnt orange, and attached it to the card front with a Wobble.  The designer paper on the card front came from a pack of cute pet themed cardstock, along with some lovely striped paper from Basic Grey called Bradford, from their Pyrus collection. 

The sentiment is stamped in Rich Cocoa and die cut with a Spellbinders’ tag die.  I added it with some brown seam binding ribbon and added a few jewels.

Hope your weekend is as great as mine is going to be!!

Marie,
Thanks for making our stamping weekend such fun. I felt so reconnected to everyone and couldn't stop grinning. I slept until noon yesterday and finally got caught up. We had a good time playing and visiting.
Hugs,
Beverly

Aw, such a sweet SWEET card. Our pets are so sparkly in spirit, aren't they? And they often have sparkly noses if they venture into the craft room. So pretty, Marie!
