I am happy to be back but I am so touched by the amazing comments, emails and phone calls I received over the loss of my dear friend and your blog buddy….”Eddie Itell” . I miss him so, as there were years of wonderful memories but time does heal wounds and I am doing o.k.
Today’s card is one that I sat and thought….“How can I say thank you”…we all have read the Rainbow Bridge as it is a beautiful piece. This card is for YOU that have left messages….and also I made one for our Vet and also for the wonderful friend that introduced us to Eddie….(poor guy – he was dumped off as a puppy….)
The stamp set, Over the Rainbow seemed PERFECT for today’s card….and in the past I have made a dog bone…and I just knew that I could pull them both together. The sentiment from the One Big Meaning also worked great and I love the fact that it says “us”
Because this stamp set is a photopolymer….perfect placement is easy~peasy each and every color! The Bone was made from the Owl Punch and then a strip of scraps that is 3/8″ wide by 1 1/2″…I think that it is perfect. I did take a sponge and lightly sponged the outside edges.
We feel so blessed with our Vets…and they soooooo deserve a special card of gratitude for all of the years and amazing care they always gave to Eddie and continue to give to so many. I also think that this card would be perfect with a sentiment of “I’m sorry”. I know that it is just so darn hard to find the right card at a difficult time.
Below is your 911 on the card today! I decided to add the date of the post so if there happens to be a clinch when you PIN IT…you can see the date and then do a search in my blog.
Here are some “funny pictures” that I found and had to share with you…I must say that I have enjoyed having some “me time” remember, laughing and crying…but excepting the fact that we made the right decision.
I deeply hope that you have an “Eddie” in your life….he was always a friend that I could count on…..xoxoxox
Enjoy the day…and again, many thanks for your love and caring wishes you gave to us. Our animals are a HUGE part of our life…and I thank you for loving Eddie so! I do hope to see you tomorrow…it is a SUPER FUN color challenge that I know you will smile!
