Some weeks ago, DD had to make a decision to put down one of her greyhounds. Reilly had not been eating well, and after some extensive tests at several vets, she was diagnosed with liver cancer which had spread other places. She came home for a few days, and then went to the Rainbow Bridge. DD says the other dogs were quite lost for some days, as Reilly was the 'organizer' of the trio. A bit of time has passed, & finally completed the image that was colored right after we got the news. The ODBD set we bought years ago. Thought the image would be a snap to color, but it was more fiddly to color well than I expected. Have yet to find any good greyhound stamps to add to the stash, so this puppy will have to serve.
ODBD Dog Sympathy Cling set (E340)...has some nice sentiments in it too. Colored with Copics, diecut with a Sizzix oval.
- Darice oval die used for mat. Used the spaces in the die to stencil on a darker color.
- border is a snippet from a brusho session, and the DP covering the white cardbase was embossed with a S/B Mbossability folder. Got the debossed side by mistake but that's ok, as each side is pretty. I had to remember to only use one plate for the sandwich. I have broken a C/Bug in the past using these Mbossability folders, and some of the new embossing folders are quite thick too. If you're using them, pay attention to your die cutting machine when doing so!
- leaf frond from the snippet box and the die sentiment was cut from the same piece as the border strip.
Added some new cards to the Cards by Friends page, so hope you'll have time to enjoy them with us. There is a link to the card maker's blog under each, so you can visit the blogger and see their other lovely work. It's a joy to see these sweet thoughts up on the mantel as we come into the room & know that someone thought of us.
Hope you've had a good day. Thanks for visiting. Hugs
