Sympathy for a Furry Family Member

For those of you who don't know me, I am a huge Boxer fan. Yea, I like boxing, but I am talking FURRY boxers, the sweet kind, the ones that like to lean on you while you rub them behind the ears, the ones that are excited to see you when you come home from work, no matter how crabby you are....But for a friend of mine.... her boxer slipped away. You see, boxers are "prone" to certain cancers as they get older, and poor Cayman developed one and he quietly slipped away. He was a great friend, and protector, to three really sweet little kids, and I know the whole family misses him deeply. That is why I created this card, for Wendy, and her family, because I know that I would be beside myself if something ever happens to Jack, my boxer.

I used a hodgepodge of product here, SU! papers, SU! baroque motifs flourish and flower, MFT Gone to the Dogs stamp set, and PTI Mixed Messages as the sentiment. I used the swirly cuttlebug folder to emboss the layered piece, and small oval punch for the sentiment hang tag. Ribbon is from Ellen Hutson online store. I hope you like this quick little sympathy card. I am off to spend one more free day with Scout before he starts school. Big brother Gavin started middle school last week and we are sooooo lonely without him :(

I am such a baaaaddd blogger!

I am such a bad blogger! But, I have been having so much fun with my boys, going to the pool, taking them to the beach, hunting for shells and sharks teeth, working in the garden, watching the humming birds too. I snapped this picture yesterday morning, so I thought I would post it, whilst I make something to post for later. I thougth it was pretty cool, even thought I am NOT a photographer in any sense of the word!
