When I made this card a couple weeks ago for the new "animal" challenge starting today on the DigiStamps4Joy challenge blog, I had no idea it would end as a tribute to my wonderful dog, Sammy.
My Golden Retriever, Sammy, age 9, died Oct 9, 2014, from 2 cancerous tumors. He will be missed more than words can say. This card sums up my feelings for him:
This was one of the first images I fell in love with when joining the DigiStamps4Joy design team. It is so sweet, and takes me back to my childhood.
This digi is called "best friends" and is drawn by Margy. She is so good at animal images!
I colored the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is computer generated.
Sammy and I liked to sit on the front deck together, watching the world go by. I would usually sit with my arm around him, like this image. Wherever I went, he was with me. He often laid at my feet, keeping them warm. I will miss my boy for a long, long time.
The designer paper is from Fancy Paper -- Summer's End. I used a Spellbinder's Label die in 2 sizes, and a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The heart chipboard is also from Fancy Pants.
I found a couple of my favorite pictures of my husband and Sammy. They are just finishing up a run together. It didn't matter the season or the weather -- they were out there together.
