A Special Labrador Card for Hubby

Coffee/Tea of the Day - Coconut coffee to be followed by Lavender Mint iced tea later today :)

Hello and welcome to the start of a brand new, marvelous week! :) what wonders to behold!

I am slow getting my projects posted, and I do apologize for that. still not feeling real whippy, so everything is taking even longer to get accomplished these days. one of our lovely DIL's was at camp last week with her youth group. it was a delight to see her and spend an hour or two with her each day! Palmer was able to go out to camp on their last day, and he was over the moon to see Elizabeth again! we are huge pet lovers in our family, and our beloved cats and dogs are treasures. I think I have more photos of the pets than I do my children! ha!


on that note, I want to share a card I made for Dave. our Labradors have held very special places in our hearts. my sons have never known life without at least one in the house. so I knew when it was time to make a card for David, I needed to include one of our precious pups.

I found the vintage image online. sorry, but if I don't write absolutely everything down these days, I forget. I will try to do better. gosh, I can't remember from which Etsy store I found the paper either. I think the tag is from either Shabby Dabby Doo Dah or Artymaze. ugh. this head of mine....

lots of distressing and ink squirty tool. vintage buttons are from my stash, and the seam binding is from Zipper Stop.

I made the wonderful decision this weekend to give away all of my Copic markers to one of my DIL's. I never use them and have over 300. she is an artist, and they will get great use. I feel as if a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. no pressure to try to master Copic shading and blending. wooohooo! as the saying goes, you gotta do you, and Copics are most definitely NOT me! ;)  she is very excited, and I can't wait to see how she uses them.

all of you have a most amazing week! love to each of you! :)
Jennifer

I really love this card Jennifer! We had the most wonderful black lab called Morgan & although she died 8 yrs. ago I think of her all the time. I'm sure Dave loved his card.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog & leaving such lovely comments on my cards.
Big hugs
