Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Peppermint
Some very dear friends of ours recently lost their dog of many years. he was such a sweetheart, and I just couldn't let the moment pass without making a card to tell them how very sorry I was at his passing.
the card works perfectly for the new challenge over at the Bugaboo challenge and inspiration blog where the theme is 'anything goes.'
I had not seen such perfect images for these types of occasions until I came across a card someone shared on another blog. I'll be picking up the cat version soon. here is the link to the one I used on my card, 'Sign It - Dog Condolences.'
papers are from the Basic Grey Oxford collection, main die is by Spellbinders & pet item dies are retired ones from Whimsy Stamps, seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are from my vintage stash. corrugated cardboard and die were distressed with Prima chalk ink. flower centers were dotted with distress stickles and dog tag was painted with shimmerz.
thank you for stopping by! enjoy your weekend! :)
