Its Friday, the middle of the month, and Friends with Flair!
Here we are, smack dab in the middle of November. It's been so cold this week that if I didn't have a calendar in front of me I'd think it's December or even January. Just a prelude of what's to come!
I so love Fridays and linking up to Unity's Friends With Flair. And I love spending time throughout my weekend visiting all of the blogs that are linked up. Such talent and inspiration! Oh, what fun!
There's a story that goes with today's card. One of my staff members has had an aging dog that she knew wouldn't make it much longer. Well, last Sunday was Eddie's day to cross to the Rainbow Bridge. She called me Sunday evening, too distraught to come to work on Monday, needing one more day to mourn his loss before facing everyone.
When I got home from work on Monday, I made her this card in memory of her English Bulldog, Eddie:
I used a new Darice embossing folder to get the paw print background, then painted some of them with Chocolate Creative Inspirations Paint.
This was the first Phyllis Harris stamp I ever bought, and it's still my favorite. You'll find it in the Unity Store here. It's called "First Love". I colored the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is from a Market Street Stamp set. It's also one of my favorites, and my "go to" quote for situations like this one. The paw with wings stamp is part of the MSS set.
Don't forget to check out the Unity Store for this weekend's new releases. I love the Snow Peeps! I need to get going on making some Christmas cards with them! OK, I'm off to visit my FWF blogs. Can't wait!
