A Pet Sympathy Card

We received such a sad phone call Wednesday night from our daughter.  She had to put to sleep her dog of 15 years, Betty.  She's never had children as she's a career woman but her dogs are her children.  And we  call them our grandpuppies.

I used stamp sets from The Angel Company.  The dog is from a set that's about 10 years old.  I purchased it when it first came out.  I used TAC paper from the Penelope paper pack.  And a couple Spellbinder dies and a partial Spirelli technique finished off the design.  Oh, the twine is from The Twinery.

I added dots of Stardust Clear Gel pen to the eyes and a black rhinestone for the nose.  Copic markers were used to color the dog.  We do have fond memories of Betty and will miss her, too.

Very sweet - I have this stamp set too - just can't give it up. So sad to loose a family pet especially when you have no kids, they surely do leave pawprints on your heart.
