Happy Easter

My apologies for being absent from the blog for a few days. I have been enjoying my grandson and his sleepover, supporting my husband through his biopsy and saying goodbye to our wonderful Jack Russel Lucy who was 15 years old and had to go to Doggy Heaven. The week was filled with lots of emotions both good and bad.

Today's card is in memory of Lucy. It is a Cornish Heritage Farm stamp which is no longer available since the company closed but it is one of my favourites. It is coloured with copics and then to get the hair affect on the dog I used blender fluid and a piece of terry cloth. The sentiment is one dear to my heart. Lucy was a great dog and for a Jack so calm and obedient. She loved to climb trees when she was younger and was the best life guard at our backyard pool. I always knew the children were safe when Lucy was on the job. She will live forever in our hearts. My husband will miss her terribly she was indeed his best bud.

Hope everyone has a Happy Easter and enjoys family and friends.

  1. I popped on over to comment on your mad for Marker's card, but I wasnt sure which one it was! Anyway while I was here I got to reading your blog and had a lovely time. I feel for you so much about your dog, because I totally understand. I love my dog so much. They are the best animals!! Anyway your cards are beautiful and I loved reading about your life. (I hate house work too!! I would much rather be card-making!!) I also have candy on my blog if you want to pop over.
