For the Faithful Friends

Helloooo!  Today's card is made with love.

Lately, for some strange reason, I have been missing my dear departed puppy -- not really a puppy I guess- she was an 8 year old mini Schnauzer, and a feisty one at that.

For the Faithful Friends ....... and this week's Color Throwdown

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink!

I decided to get out my very under used Pet stamps - Come All Ye Faithful and With Sympathy - Loss of a Pet and  I used the cute new stamp set - No Strings Attached for the "twine" - I love the way it looks like real twine - without all the bulk!

I cut my Winter Wisteria cardstock on an angle and impressed it with the Picnic Plaid Impression Plate. Look at the pretty embossing!!

The Tiny Tags Die was used - it sort of reminded me of a dog tag - to "hang" from the bow!

When we first got our Miniature Schnauzer Rosie, I couldn't stand her - too soon after the death of our other dog (whom I adored!.)  Rosie was rambunctious and far too hyper for my liking - she couldn't seem to find her "place".

 Needless to say - she turned into the pup that we ALL learned to love and when she died - ugly, nasty tears.  We are so fortunate to live on a farm where a dog is/was a priority - however, now that we travel in the winter - no more dogs - *sniff*


  1. Aw, I'm sorry you're missing your puppy... I know that sadness. (((hugs))) BUT I'm so happy to have you playing along with us this week, Bonnie! Your card is DARLING! Those dogs are too stinkin' cute!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I have had my dog for two years now and just love having a dog! She is a terrier too and was quite rambunctious when we got her. With lots of TLC she has really settled down. I think you should get a puppy and kennel her or have someone watch her when you travel .. Or take her with you! Love your card too!

  3. My goodness! The passing of pets is so hard and heartfelt. Hugs to you. In the long run it does make traveling a little less stressful. I still have 4 cats and a dog. Always looking for a good babysitter. But to your card- it's Splendid! The doggies are just so cute. Thanks for sharing your story and the sweet card. Cheers, Victoria Lavender

  4. What a sweet card. Love the cute pups. The colors look wonderful. The twine image is amazing! Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown this week.
